AU uses a traditional graduation hood in place of a graduation cap.
In medieval times, the hood was one part of a garment worn by scholars to cover their shoulders or head to protect them from inclement weather. Today, the hood is worn down the back and is kept in place by a neckband that is placed over a graduate's head to rest on the shoulders. Click here to view the hoods.
Graduation hoods cost $100 including GST and will be available for purchase in the merchandise area after the Convocation ceremony. If you are unable to attend Convocation you may order one for purchase or borrow one to have portraits taken.
