Amber J., Satilla Elementary School
"Thank you for always honoring our requests. It's a privilege ordering from your company and friendly staff."
Yolanda B., Velasco Elementary
"The parents and the students would like to say thanks for making our children look nice for graduation. The smile on the faces of our children when I delivered the gowns to their classroom was overwhelming!"
We can also customize this gown by adding piping to it, or by changing the velvet color or the fabric color.
This way, you get a truly custom look, for the fraction of the cost of a completely made-to-measure doctoral gown:
The doctoral robe is normally in stock with either Black Velvet or Ph.D. Blue Velvet for $290.00, or with with Black or Blue Velvet and Gold Piping for $365.00

In addition to our Deluxe Doctoral Gowns, we also stock Faculty Doctoral Gowns for $175.00
However the faculty quality gowns are only available with black velvet, and the sleeves on these gowns are open "choir style", rather than the full bell sleeve of the deluxe gown. Also these gowns cannot be customized.
Faculty quality doctoral gown with black velvet
We also carry an economy student doctor's graduation gown, styled similar to the above faculty gown, but souvenir quality, not intended for years of use by faculty members.
The cost of the economy student doctoral gown is $80.00
Doctoral Graduation Hoods
Deluxe PhD hood / Deluxe PhD gown
The academic hood is comprised of three parts: a fabric shell (usually black), "degree velvet" and "school lining". In most cases, the important factors are the velvet and the lining.
The velvet of the doctoral hood represents your degree. The lining represents the school where you obtained your degree.
For a Ph.D. hood , the degree velvet is Rich Royal Blue, or as we call it, "PhD Blue", regardless of the field or specialty of the Ph.D.
For all other doctorates (non PhD) or degrees, the velvet colors are listed below: Agriculture -academic hood velvet: Maize Arts / Letters / Humanities - academic hood velvet: White Business / Accountancy / Commerce - academic hood velvet: Drab Communications / Journalism - academic hood velvet: Crimson Dentistry - academic hood velvet: Lilac Economics - academic hood velvet: Copper Education - academic hood velvet: Light Blue Engineering - academic hood velvet: Orange Fine Arts (including Architecture) - Brown Forestry - academic hood velvet: Russet Journalism - Communications / academic hood velvet: Crimson Law - academic hood velvet: Purple Library Science - academic hood velvet: Lemon Yellow Medicine - academic hood velvet: Hunter Green Music - academic hood velvet: Pink Nursing - academic hood velvet: Apricot Oratory (Speech) - academic hood velvet: Silver - Gray Pharmacy - academic hood velvet: Olive Green Philosophy - academic hood velvet: PhD Rich Royal Blue Physical Education - academic hood velvet: Sage Green Public Administration (includes Foreign Service): Peacock Blue Public Health - academic hood velvet: Salmon Pink Science - academic hood velvet: Bright Gold Social Work - academic hood velvet: Citron Theology (including Divinity, Ministry, Religion): Scarlet Veterinary Science - academic hood velvet: Gray
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 academic hood is custom-made according to your school colors, degree colors, and type of degree (BA, MA, or Ph.D.), 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!
Deluxe doctoral gown with black velvet and light blue piping added Deluxe Ed.D. hood with light blue velvet with light blue piping
Deluxe Ph.D. and Doctoral Graduation Hoods
Notwithstanding the discipline velvet colors listed on the top paragraph, the correct velvet color for all Ph.D. hoods is dark blue, representing the mastery of the discipline of scholarship attested to by the awarding of the Ph.D.
On the other hand, the correct velvet color for all non-Ph.D. doctorate holders (as well as Masters and Bachelors) would be that of their particular field.
That means that while a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) would receive light blue velvet, a Ph.D. in English would receive the dark blue velvet.
Similarly a non-Ph.D. Doctor of Science would receive Gold velvet, but a Ph.D. in Science would receive the dark Blue Velvet. A non-Ph.D. Doctor of Engineering would receive Orange Velvet, but a Ph.D. in Engineering would each receive the dark blue velvet.
To avoid confusion, it is very important therefore for all doctors ordering academic hoods to clearly specify whether they are a Ph.D. (and would be receiving the dark blue velvet regardless of their field) or a Doctor of...
Gold piping is also an option for doctors wanting to "dress up" their gown and/or hood.
Piping is often added to customized doctoral hoods to match doctoral gowns with piping.
Deluxe doctoral hood with white velvet with Gold Piping Deluxe doctoral gown with white velvet and Gold Piping added
The price for deluxe hoods with piping is $145.00 The price for deluxe hoods without piping is $130.00 The price for souvenir - student hoods (no piping) is $80.00
We recommend the Deluxe hood for Deluxe and Faculty quality gowns and the Economy doctor's hood for the souvenir gown.
Doctoral Graduation Tams
To "top it off" you have the choice of a Doctoral Tam, or a Mortarboard for your academic cap.
Eight-sided black velvet doctoral tam with Gold Bullion tassel
Although not required, most faculty members who have doctorates purchase doctoral tams, in place of mortarboards, to differentiate themselves from students and non-doctors.
Doctoral tams are available in your choice of four, six, or eight cornersand in your choice of a gold silky tassel or gold metallic tassel, or with plain tassels. If you elect to dress your gown or hood with Gold Piping, then we strongly recommend the Gold Bullion Tassel since it matches better with the gown and hood piping than the silky tassel.
We keep Doctoral Tams in stock in traditional Black velvet, and can also make them in your choice of colors such as Red or Blue.
Most faculty members choose six-sided or eight-sided Tams
Extremely tall and thin people may look better with the eight-sided tam since it tends to look more round, and help "fill a person out", while very short stocky people may look better with a four-sided tam since it is sharper and thus makes the person look "less round".
The cost of the four, six, or eight-sided Tams are $92.00 with the Bullion Tassel or $78.50 with the silky tassel.
If purchasing without a gown, the price of the four and six-sided Tam is the same, but the eight-sided Tam is $20.00 extra.
Tams in Blue or Red or other non-Black velvet colors are $20.00 extra.
When ordering your Doctoral Tam, be sure to indicate your hat size or your head size. Using a tape, measure the circumference of your head about an inch over your eyebrow. The size should be in the neighborhood of 22 to 23 1/2 inches. It should be snug but not too tight. Round size to nearest quarter inch. If you are between sizes, err to the larger quarter inch. A cap size would be something like 6 7/8, 7 1/4, 7 3/8, etc.

Congratulations to Our Fall 2023 Graduates
On Dec. 16, more than 1,000 graduate degrees will be awarded at NC State University’s fall commencement exercises. These include over 700 master’s degrees and nearly 170 doctoral degrees. Degrees will be conferred at PNC Arena, 9 a.m.
Debbie Antonelli, a two-time Emmy Award-winning basketball analyst and NC State alumna, will address summer and fall graduates at the University Commencement ceremony. In addition to her career in broadcasting, Debbie served as the director of marketing for the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Inspired by her son, a Special Olympics athlete, Debbie founded a fundraiser called “24 Hours Nothing But Net,” a 24-hour free-throw shooting marathon in which she makes 100 free throws every hour. In the last five years, “Team Antonelli” has raised more than $847,000 for the Special Olympics and hopes to cross the $1 million mark in May 2024.
Be aware that the PNC Arena has implemented a clear bag policy that will be in effect for commencement.

Doctoral education trains scientists, engineers, researchers, and scholars, all of whom are critical to the nation’s progress. These individuals create and share new knowledge and new ways of thinking that lead, directly and indirectly, to new products, services, and works of art. Annual counts of doctorate recipients from U.S. universities are measures of the incremental investment in human resources devoted to science, engineering, research, and scholarship, and these counts can serve as leading indicators of the capacity for knowledge creation and innovation in various domains.
Changes in the characteristics of this population over time reflect political, economic, social, technological, and demographic trends. These include the following:
- Changes in representation of doctorate recipients in different demographic groups
- Growth in science and engineering (S&E) fields and changes in their relative size
- Different pathways to the doctoral degree
- Changes in completion time for doctoral study
- Expansion of the postdoctoral researcher pool
- Shifting academic employment opportunities after graduation
Understanding these connections is necessary to informing policy discussions regarding this country’s doctoral education system.
In addition, this report highlights recent doctorate recipients’ graduate experiences and postgraduation plans in the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The data in this report cover the 2022 academic year (1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022) and were collected primarily from doctorate students who completed the Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) as they approached graduation. In 2021, NCSES added new survey questions specifically designed to measure the pandemic’s impact on doctorate recipients. This report compares the results of these data to the previous year.
Key takeaways from the 2022 SED data include the following:
- The number of doctorate recipients from U.S. universities increased after two years of decline. The increase from 52,194 doctorate recipients in 2021 to 57,596 in 2022 was the sharpest 1-year increase (10%) since 1970.
- Between 2021 and 2022, the number of U.S. citizen and permanent resident doctorate recipients increased by 11% to 35,311, while temporary visa holders increased by 10% to 19,633.
- The increase in the number of doctorate recipients between 2021 and 2022 was proportionately larger in S&E fields (11%) than in non-S&E fields (7%).
- Over two-thirds of the 51,063 doctorate recipients who responded to questions about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2022 indicated their research had been disrupted, compared to less than half of the 41,060 doctorate recipients who responded in 2021. For 80% of them, disruptions stemmed from limited or no access to resources needed for research.
- Over half of doctorate recipients who responded to the COVID-19 pandemic impact questions in 2022 indicated the timeline for completing the doctoral degree was delayed by the pandemic—the second most frequently reported impact. In contrast, 1 in 10 said funding for their doctoral studies had been reduced or suspended.
- The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic varied largely by field and nature of doctoral work, with research disruptions reported in larger proportions by doctorate recipients in fields where laboratories, equipment, and other facilities are indispensable, such as biological and biomedical sciences, physical sciences, and visual and performing arts.
- In 2022, the proportion of doctorate recipients with definite postgraduation commitments increased from 2021 in all fields. However, non-postdoctoral study (postdoc) academic employment commitments declined, while industry or business commitments increased. In addition, the postdoc rate in the United States declined or remained flat in most fields.
- Larger proportions of S&E doctorate recipients who were still seeking employment or negotiating job offers at graduation reported impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to their counterparts with firm postgraduation commitments.
