Fulton Schools PhD Hooding Ceremony

A special celebration for Fulton Schools doctoral graduates
Tuesday, December 13, 2022

To honor our most advanced graduates, we have a new tradition: the Fulton Schools PhD Hooding Ceremony.

Each semester, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering celebrates our doctoral candidates in an intimate and comfortable setting, allowing friends and family to easily participate in the celebration of your accomplishments.

All PhD graduates will be hooded at the Fulton Schools PhD Hooding Ceremony, not at the Fulton Schools Convocation.

Graduates: Please arrive for check-in by 3 p.m.

Note: ASU PhD graduates may also be hooded at the University Graduate Commencement.

Missed registration? You can still participate.

Arrive at check-in by 3:00 p.m. and bring proof that you’ve graduated: A picture of your diploma or screenshot of MyASU showing you applied to graduate will be accepted. If you are late to check-in, we may not be able to accommodate your participation.
