Doctoral Hooding Ceremony

The August 2022 doctoral hooding ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 11 at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts. The Ceremony starts at 3:00 p.m., doors open to the public at 2:00 p.m. Graduate are asked to report to the band room at 1:30 for a reception and preparation.

Please note that the hooding ceremony is the official ceremony for doctoral graduates, so doctoral graduates do not participate in the general graduation ceremony for master’s students and undergraduates.

Graduation information for master’s and specialist’s graduates is provided by the Office of the Registrar’s Graduation webpage and questions about those ceremonies can go to registrar@clemson.eduClick here to register for the Hooding Ceremony (REGISTRATIONS ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE; INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE PROVIDED AT A LATER DATE)
