We are proud of our graduates and look forward to honoring and celebrating their achievements. We are in the process of evaluating how best to do this in light of the COVID-19 situation. An announcement with specific plans will be distributed at the very earliest opportunity.
The hooding ceremony honors CPHHS graduate students, from all programs, who completed their master’s or Ph.D. degrees during academic year 2019-2020, which includes Fall 2019 through Summer 2020.
It is optional for students participating in the ceremony to wear the graduation regalia-cap, gown and hood. For those who choose to wear the regalia, their major professor will "hood" them during the ceremony. Those choosing not to wear the regalia will be honored in the same way as those who wear the regalia, but they will not be hooded.
Hooding regalia is available to purchase (but NOT for rent) at the OSU Beaver Store.
