Doctoral Candidates

  • Purchase your regalia and hood at the NMSU bookstore at a date to be determined.
  • Bring your hood with you to the ceremony but do not wear it.
  • Drape your hood over your arm as you walk up to the platform.
  • Doctoral candidates, after receiving your certificate, proceed past the center podium and stand in front of the small riser. Turn to face the audience.  Your faculty advisor will then hood you and escort you down the left ramp.
