Acquiring the Correct Academic Hood


Decide that you wish to attend a commencement ceremony. If you are participating in a commencement ceremony, you will likely be required to buy or rent the relevant academic regalia. However, if you do not wish to attend a graduation ceremony, you do not need to purchase academic regalia in order to receive your degree. There are positives and negatives to attending a commencement ceremony.

  • Positives include being able to participate in parties, ceremonies, and events; being in the presence of family and friends; having a ceremonial marker of your accomplishment; participating in a centuries-old tradition; and being able to take official graduation photos.
  • Negatives include having to pay anywhere between $50-$1000 to either rent or purchase academic regalia, a garment you will likely never wear again. Some graduating students might also have to travel long distances to return to their university for a commencement ceremony, which can add to the total cost. Students who do not like crowds or large public events might prefer to skip official commencement exercises as well.


Figure out whether to purchase or rent academic regalia. Most universities will give you the option of either purchasing academic regalia (that you will be able to keep forever) or renting academic regalia (that you will have to return by a designated deadline). For most people, renting academic regalia is more cost-effective. However, if you are planning on becoming a professor, you might be expected to wear regalia as a faculty member at future events. In that case, purchasing your own regalia might be more efficient.


Consult your university policies about regalia. Many universities have a specific provider of academic regalia and will not permit you to purchase regalia elsewhere. Other universities will allow you to buy or rent regalia from any provider you choose, or perhaps borrow regalia from an alumna. Always adhere to your specific school’s regalia requirements to ensure that you are allowed to participate fully in commencement exercises.

  • Note that many universities have specific colors of academic regalia that you are required to get. Many American universities have, however, standardized academic hood types across universities. Many European universities still have unique kinds of hood. This is another reason why it is essential that you do your research before renting or purchasing any piece of academic regalia.


Know the parts of an academic hood. An academic hood has three distinct components: the shell, the lining, and the velvet trim. In general, the shell of the hood matches the academic robes; the lining shows off your institution’s colors; and the velvet trim indicates the field in which you are receiving your degree.


Tell your regalia provider what level of degree you are earning. Different types of degree lead to different shapes and sizes of academic hoods. To make sure that you acquire the correct kind of hood, tell your regalia provider whether you are earning an Associate’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, or Doctoral degree.

  • An Associate’s degree hood is usually worn flat against the back like a cape or cowl. Note that Associate’s hoods are not as commonly worn as graduate degree hoods–you might not need a hood to be a part of your regalia..
  • A Bachelor’s degree hood is 3 feet long and does not end in a sharp point. Note that Bachelor’s hoods are not as commonly worn as graduate degree hoods–you might not need a hood to be a part of your regalia.
  • A Master’s degree hood is 3.5 feet long and comes to a point at the bottom.
  • A Doctoral hood is the longest hood at 4 feet long. It has the sharpest point and also the largest trim of all hoods.


Tell your regalia provider where you are getting your degree from. While many academic hoods are primarily black, hoods do have certain components that may show off the colors of the university in the lining. It is possible that you will have to purchase a hood that will match the color of your academic robes. Make sure that your regalia provider has all relevant institutional information so that you match appropriately.


Tell your regalia provider what field your degree is in, especially for graduate degrees. American universities have a standard set of colors that indicate your field of study. These will affect the color of the velvet trim that lines your hood. European universities are not standardized in the same way as American universities. Check with your institution to make sure you are purchasing the correct academic hood. If your university adheres to the standardized rules of regalia, you will have an academic hood with the following colors:

  • Arts: White
  • Business administration: Drab
  • Communication: Maroon
  • Education: Light blue
  • Fine arts: Brown
  • Law: Purple
  • Medicine: Green
  • Music: Pink
  • Nursing: Apricot
  • Philosophy: Royal Blue
  • Science: Yellow gold
  • Social work: Citrus
  • Theology: Scarlet
  • Note that all Ph.D. students will wear a hood trimmed in the Philosophy Royal Blue color, even if philosophy was not your field of study. For example, a Ph.D. student in Biology will wear the royal blue hood, whereas an M.D. student would wear a hood trimmed in green.

Details of Gowns and robes

American academic dress is typically closed at the front and is properly worn with the prescribed cap and hood. On the baccalaureate dress shown, other items, such as scarves, stoles or cords may be seen.

Bachelor’s and master’s gowns in the United States are similar to some of their counterparts in the United Kingdom, particularly Oxford. The main differences are that the bachelor’s gown is designed to be worn closed and that the sleeves of the modern gown are square at the end instead of pointed[1] as the Code calls for. The master’s gown sleeve is oblong and, though the base of the sleeve hangs down, it is square-cut at the rear part of the oblong shape. The front part has an arc cut away, and there is a slit for the wrist opening (which before 1960 was located at the elbow as on British gowns), but the rest of the arc is closed. The shape is evocative of the square-cut liripipe incorporated into many academic hoods. The master’s gown is designed to be worn open or closed.

Doctoral gowns are typically black, although some schools use gowns in the school’s colors. The Code calls for the outside shell of the hood to remain black in that case. Doctoral gowns have bell sleeves with three velvet bands on them and velvet facing on the front of the gown. The Code calls for the gown trim to be either black or the color designated for the field of study in which the doctorate is earned, with the proviso that the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) uses the dark blue velvet of philosophy regardless of the particular field studied. (For example, a Ph.D. in theology would wear velvet gown trim in dark blue, a Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) would wear scarlet trim, or either might choose black.) The robes have full sleeves instead of the bell sleeves of the bachelor’s gown. Some gowns expose a necktie or cravat when closed. They are designed to be worn open or closed in the front.

Members of the Board of Trustees or other governing body officers of a college or university, regardless of their degrees, are entitled to wear doctor’s gowns, faced only with black velvet and black velvet bars on the sleeves. However, their hoods may be only those of the degree actually held by the wearer (or one specially prescribed by the institution). The color standardization for the outside shell of the hood as black provides flexibility of use and helps facilitate this practice.

Official Degree Color Chart

This Academic Hood Colors List serves an important function for your set of graduation Academic Regalia (hood, tam, and gown).

The regalia hood colors typically include four sections: shell fabric, velvet edge, satin field, and satin chevron.

The color of the velvet edge is determined using this official degree color chart. That velvet edge hood color, sometimes known as Academic Regalia Inter-Collegiate Colors, represents your specific degree or discipline. The satin field and chevron (the hood lining colors) represent your university or college school colors. The overall size and shape represents the type of degree: bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral (with the narrow end getting progressively longer with the higher ranking degrees).

Finally, the fabric shell color simply matches the fabric color of the graduation gown, which is usually black but sometimes is another color depending on the degree-granting institution. Associate degrees use a special cowl instead of a hood.
