Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences invites students who have an immediate family member with a DO or MD designation to have their family member participate in their ceremonial hooding as a guest hooder. Immediate family members include a spouse, parent, sibling, or grandparent. Students must indicate in their graduation application that they want to have a guest hooder for ceremony and seating planning.
Guest Hooder Regalia
Guest hooders are required to wear academic regalia. Rental regalia is ordered on the Oak Hall website. Please order regalia by Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The guest hooders regalia will be at their expense, and shipped to PNWU for the graduate to pick up on Friday, May 15.
Guest hooders need to arrive at the Capitol Theatre at 12:00 p.m., enter through the 4th street (back stage door) entrance. Guest hooders will line up, be part of the processional with their graduate, and be seated beside their graduate. The guest hooder will follow their graduate on stage, step onto the hooding platform, hood their graduate then proceed to seating to watch the remainder of the ceremony.
