Hooding Ceremony

Hooding Banner

Congratulations to all College of Education master’s and Ed.S. candidates!!!

The College of Education is pleased to invite graduating students from our master's and Ed.S. programs to take part in a hooding ceremony. The hooding ceremony is a special recognition event for students receiving their master’s or Ed.S. degrees only. Candidates will be recognized and honored by College administration and program faculty in the company of your family and friends. This ceremony is a College of Education event and does not replace the large University-wide ceremony taking place at the Golden 1 Center where your degree is officially conferred.

Eligible students will receive an email with a personal invitation to confirm your participation and indicate how many guests you will have attend (up to 8 guests per graduate). To ensure your spot, please RSVP by April 12, 2024.
