At Graduation Cap and Gowns .com, we specialize academic regalia for faculty members and graduating students, such as bachelor's caps and gowns and academic hoods.
The academic hood is comprised of a fabric shell (usually black), "degree velvet" and "school lining".

In addition to the degree colors, each school generally has its own colors. These "school colors" are represented by the colors of the satin lining in the back of the hood.
As each hood is custom-made according to your school colors, degree colors, and type of degree (BA, MA, or PhD), we ask that you give us about +/- 8 weeks to process your order, especially during the graduation season.
What if you don't have that much time to wait? No problem -- ask us about our free loaner hood program!
