Commencement and Hooding

For graduate students, commencement is marked by a hooding ceremony, a symbol of academic achievement for students who have completed their master’s degrees.

The orange and blue on the hood represents Clayton State’s school colors. The collar is fashioned with a color representing the field of study in which the degree was earned – Arts, white; Business, tan; Education, blue; Psychology, gold; Nursing, peach; and Healthcare pink or green.

Students will be hooded upon receiving their degree at the commencement ceremonies in the fall and spring.
