Academic Honors & Academic Hoods

If you are an undergraduate graduating with academic honors, your hood will be issued when you pick up your regalia at the Seattle University Bookstore. Master's, educational specialists and doctoral degree candidates wear hoods appropriate to their degrees.


Be sure to pick up the color tassel that corresponds with the school or college granting your degree. In academic tradition, the student who has not yet earned a degree wears the tassel on the RIGHT side of the mortarboard. After the baccalaureate degrees have been conferred, graduates will be directed to move the tassel to the LEFT. Master's candidates wear their tassel on the left, to begin with and, therefore, do not move it during the ceremony.
