Caps and Gowns

Participation in commencement requires the appropriate academic attire.

At Adelphi, this means our custom brown cap and tassel and a gown with gold-embroidered Adelphi seal and the hood of your discipline. Students receiving associate degrees do not wear a hood.

All Academic Attire must be ordered online beginning on or about February 1, 2019. Specifics regarding ordering and delivery will be posted at that time.

Doctoral Hooding Candidates

At the doctoral hooding ceremony, candidates will carry their hoods with the color signifying their area of expertise clearly visible. The candidates will each be hooded onstage by their faculty advisors.
