Doctoral Hoods


In addition to the graduation gown, doctoral and phd hoods are required as part of full doctoral regalia. Academic hoods normally have one's degree color as the velvet, and the colors of the school where he/she graduated as the satin lining colors.

We recommend our deluxe hood for all deluxe and faculty regalia orders.

Deluxe hoods are available in the "traditional-standard" version, or with "piping added". If piping is indicated but a color is not specified, we will use gold piping. Or if you prefer you can specify a specific color.

When ordering your academic hood, please be sure to specify your degree(for the velvet) and where you graduated from (for the lining), including the city, since often the same school may be representeted differently on the hood depending which campus you graduated from.

If you have any questions concerning your hood (i.e. how to wear an academic hood, or which color velvet to use for your degree, etc.) please visit academichood.com or contact us

    We recommend the deluxe hood for all faculty quality doctoral gowns.

The Souvenir Quality Doctoral Gown

Our Souvenir Quality gowns are traditionally styled with velvet front velvet panels starting at the yoke of the gown, and finishing at the hem. They also feature full sleeves with three velvet stripes (chevrons) on each arm.

Gowns in black with black velvet are usually available for immediate shipment.

Additionally, we offer quantity discounts on these gowns.
The price will depend upon the quantity of caps and gowns (sets) being purchased.

Few faculty members choose Souvenir Quality gowns, since they can be used only once or twice. However, many schools choose Souvenir Quality over rental because we can sell them at below rental prices.
