This occasion will involve hooding the doctoral candidates to signify their
success in completing the requirements of their specific graduate program. The
hooding will officially recognize their passage from being our students to
faculty colleagues. Each doctoral candidate will invite a UT Dallas faculty
member (normally the supervising professor) to assist the Dean of Graduate
Studies in the hooding.
The ceremony will be similar to a graduation in that faculty and students are
dressed in academic attire.
Following the Doctoral Hooding, a reception will be held in the lobby to celebrate this happy occasion.
