School of Theology Hooding Ceremony

Please select two members of the School of Theology (or Graduate School of Arts and Sciences) faculty to present you with your “hood” at the STH convocation. These may be faculty with whom you have studied in your area of concentration or to whom you feel a particular affinity. It is your responsibility to contact the chosen faculty and invite them to serve in this capacity. Not all faculty are available the day of graduation. Please complete the Hooder Form with your choice of “hooders” and return it to the Office of Registration and Financial Aid (Suite 108) by Friday, April 21, 2017.

Guests are encouraged to arrive at Marsh Chapel well in advance of the Hooding Service, which will begin promptly at 2:00 p.m. The ceremony will conclude around 3:30 p.m. Tickets are not necessary for this event. Each graduate is allowed 8 guests.

All graduates will assemble in the first floor corridor of the School of Theology (in front of Room 108) at 1:15 p.m.  Please be punctual. You will be arranged in alphabetical order by degree program for the procession to Marsh Chapel.
