Doctoral hooding ceremony graduate studies gas x while pregnant

August and December 2017 doctoral graduates and May and August 2018 doctoral degree candidates are eligible to participate in the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony. Recipients of the following doctoral degrees are eligible and invited to participate: KU Medical Center

All guests require tickets. Please note, it could be up to 3 hours from the time guests are seated until the last graduate is hooded, so children who may want their own seats need tickets. However, infants held in a lap for the entire ceremony do not require a ticket. We expect a full auditorium and anticipate needing all seats for ticketed guests.

All August and December 2017 doctoral graduates will have their names included in the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony program. Only May and August 2018 doctoral candidates who apply to graduate by March 1, 2018 will have their names included in the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony program.

The Veteran’s Honor Cord is a red, white, and blue cord worn on top of regalia. They are available to honorably discharged veterans, as well as those currently serving in the United States military, who are graduating from KU with a 3.0 GPA or greater. To receive a Veteran’s Honor Cord contact Graduate Military Programs at or visit 222 Strong Hall. Ceremony Procedures

• Locate your faculty hooder in the line-up area for your school/College. Be certain to communicate in advance with the faculty member who will hood you to determine where you plan to meet. Please do not meet your faculty hooder in the lobby. Wait with your faculty hooder, and any of your hooder’s other graduates, for the procession to begin.

You will not receive your diploma at the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony. You must file a request for a diploma with the Office of the University Registrar. When you file your request, you may indicate whether you would like to pick up your diploma on campus or receive it by mail.

For more information regarding ceremonies for master’s and first-professional graduates, please contact your department, or review the commencement event list. For master’s students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, information is available on the College website. Accessibility

Faculty expecting to hood one or more graduates should coordinate with their graduates for more information. Graduates indicate the name of their faculty hooder on the ceremony registration form, which allows Graduate Studies to send automated notifications with some information. All listed hooders and co-hooders will receive one email for each of the graduates they will hood.

Faculty members who will hood doctoral candidates are requested to meet their students in the area designated for their school or College. There will be signs to direct faculty and students to the appropriate hallway. Please stand with the candidate(s) you will be hooding. The procession will begin promptly at 7:30 pm. Please watch this video for a demonstration of how to hood a student.

Faculty members who are not hooding doctoral candidates are encouraged to attend. Please contact the Office of Graduate Studies if you plan to attend. Graduate Studies staff will be on hand before the ceremony to show you where to line up for the procession and where seats have been reserved for members of the graduate faculty. Non-hooding faculty will process into the Lied Center following the candidates and their hooders, and they will take seats directly behind the candidates and hooders in the reserved seating area.

Guests are required to have tickets to attend the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony. Each graduate will receive 4 tickets for guests. Any additional tickets that may be available will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis using an online request system. We cannot guarantee that all graduates will receive all requested guest tickets but, in the past, we have always been able to meet all requests.

All guests require tickets. Please note, it could be up to 3 hours from the time guests are seated until the last graduate is hooded, so children who may want their own seats need tickets. However, infants held in a lap for the entire ceremony do not require a ticket. We expect a full auditorium and anticipate needing all seats for ticketed guests.

If any guests need accommodation due to a disability, the Lied Center has a variety of seating options that do not involve stairs. It is recommended that guests in need of accommodation arrive early to be able to select the area that best suits them (e.g., close to an exit or an aisle, toward the middle, or toward the back). Lied Center staff will be on hand to direct guests to the appropriate seating areas. This seating chart shows the several options available. Rows AA-00 on the lower level are reserved for graduates and faculty hooders. Parking and Map

Picture-taking will be permitted but should not impair the view of others. There will be a professional photographer taking pictures of all graduates as they are hooded. The photographer will contact graduates about the opportunity to view proofs and purchase photographs. Live Stream Broadcast
