Deluxe Doctoral Hood

Designed to perfectly match our top selling doctoral gowns, this easily customized hood is a must for every new PhD and faculty member. The basic shell is made from 100% polyester with a satin finish and surrounded by a 5 inch band of colorful velvet. The velvet color you choose will depend on the individual’s field of study.

The lining and chevron pieces of this doctoral accessory are designed to represent your school colors; these will be the same for all of the PhD students and faculty in your group. While each student will need a custom hood, our ordering system is simple, allowing you to easily input the information and choose the colors you need; we have an online chart that can help you determine the velvet colors you’ll need based on each individual’s field of study.

The easy, over the head style of the Deluxe Doctoral Hood takes the guesswork out of getting ready, and the button and loop detailing is designed to easily attach the hood to one of our doctoral robes. Each piece features a traditional rounded square shape and is 4’ long.

Each Deluxe Doctoral Hood features:

  • Elegant satin finish 100% polyester fabric base and lining in your choice of colors
  • Velvet colors to represent every possible degree
  • Easy, over the head style

This hood perfectly matches our deluxe doctoral gowns and offers an easy way to visually highlight your PhD celebrants on commencement day.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what type of hood to choose?

The hood you will choose is based on the level of education you are graduating with. A two year degree would be an associate’s shield (if required by your school), a four year degree would be a bachelor’s hood, six year degree would be a master, and PHD would be a doctorate hood. We offer both deluxe and premium versions of each type of hood (not including associates shield). Premium offers a matte finish on the shell of hood while deluxe is a dull satin.

What is the shell, chevron, lining, and velvet on a hood and what does it represent?

The color of the velvet edge is determined using this our hood degree color chart That velvet color represents your specific degree or field of study. For example, if you studied business, your velvet color would be Drab. The satin lining and chevron represent your university or college school colors. The shell is the main color and material of hood which is typically black polyester. The fabric shell color matches the fabric color of the graduation gown (usually black) but sometimes is another color depending on the degree-granting institution.

What colors do I choose? (What do you mean by primary and secondary school colors?)

The satin lining and chevron represent your university or college school colors.

Graduation Hood Explanation

What is the difference between BA, MA, and PhD hoods?

The overall size and shape represents the type of degree: bachelors, masters, or doctoral-PHD (with the narrow end getting progressively longer with the higher ranking degrees).

What is the different fabric types on the hoods?

The shell is made from 100% polyester with a dull satin finish. The lining and chevron is also made out of 100% polyester but with a shiny satin finish. Lastly, the velvet is made up of a poly-plush velveteen material.

What is an associate’s shield?

An associate’s shield is a type of hood that lays flat on the back indicating the student has earned an associate’s degree. The flat design makes the hood easy to position and prevents the age old problem of improper draping of the hood. You only have the option to customize the lining and the chevron as there is no velvet.
