Ph.D. Hooding Ceremony

The Ph.D. Hooding Ceremony is a time-honored tradition intended to recognize the achievement of each student who has earned a doctoral degree. The ceremony begins with an academic processional that includes the doctoral graduates as well as the President, Provost, Senior Vice Provost for Graduate Education, Deans, and graduating students’ faculty advisors. During the ceremony, the name of each student will be called, and the student will go onto the stage with their faculty advisor. The faculty advisor will place the doctoral hood over the head of the student, signifying their success in completing their doctoral studies. After the ceremony, there will be a reception for all participants and their guests.

The 2024 Ph.D. Hooding Ceremony will take place on Monday, May 20 at 1:00 pm in DeBaun Auditorium. DeBaun Auditorium is on the first floor of Edwin A. Stevens Hall (24 5th Street, Hoboken, NJ).

Doctoral students who completed their degree requirements in August 2023 and December 2023 are invited to participate in this year’s ceremony alongside the students who will complete their degree requirements in May 2024. Relevant students will receive more information about this event via email. If you have questions about the Ph.D. Hooding Ceremony, please contact

2024 Class Gift

Would you like to make an impact on your fellow Ducks beyond your time at Stevens?

Contribute to the 2024 Class Gift. Each year, graduating Stevens students participate in a tradition in which they rally behind their class gift. Each class member who makes a class gift of at least $20.24 will receive a Philanthropy Cord that can be worn at Commencement. This year, proceeds will go to the Student Emergency Fund. The Stevens Student Emergency Fund provides limited emergency financial assistance to currently enrolled, full-time Stevens Institute of Technology students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary and unexpected hardship. You may grant your gift at the following link or when ordering your Commencement regalia (in Step 4 - accessories).

Attention International Students:

If a friend or family member wants to visit you in the U.S. to attend your graduation ceremony, sightsee, or just spend time with you, you will need to write your friend/family member an invitation letter and gather accompanying documents to send to that person so that she or he can apply for a visa.
