Doctoral Hooding at Commencement Form

Doctoral students who plan to attend commencement ceremonies have the option of requesting that their committee Chair or Co-Chair be invited to present the doctoral hood at the graduation ceremony. This website is used to track doctoral student hooding requests. Each doctoral student who applies to graduate will be sent an email to their TAMU email account with the link to the Graduation RSVP system approximately one month prior to graduation for the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. The Graduation RSVP system will send a confirmation email to the student once they submit their hooding request. The Graduation RSVP system will also send confirmation emails to the student, faculty and Graduate & Professional School when a faculty member accepts or denies a hooding request. If a student plans to attend commencement but does not submit a hooding request OR the requested Chair or Co-Chair are not able to attend, the student will have their hood presented by the TAMU Dean of Faculties. If you have any questions, contact the Graduate & Professional School at
