The presentation of the academic hood to master’s degree candidates is a special moment for the candidate and the faculty of their academic program. Each school at the University of Washington Tacoma holds its own hooding ceremony, allowing more time to recognize each degree candidate. Master’s degree candidates are encouraged to attend both their hooding ceremony and the Commencement ceremony.
Master's and Doctoral students planning to attend their school's hooding ceremony should plan to register early to ensure arrival of apparels before their scheduled hooding ceremony.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your hooding ceremony, please contact your school or program advisor.
