Wearing the Academic Hood

Instructions for placement of academic hood.


Dress attire under the academic gown should be fairly formal.

Please do not wear jeans or shorts. It is advised that you not wear jackets or heavy clothing.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking, going up and down steps/ramps, and standing. Given the occasion, please do not wear athletic shoes or casual flip-flops.
