In Absentia Conferments

Although most students complete their course of study and have their degree conferred at a degree ceremony immediately following the award, some students will have their degree awarded at a time when no degree ceremonies are scheduled to take place. The University, therefore, holds in absentia ceremonies to enable students who complete their studies outside the graduation ceremony periods, to have their degree conferred and, therefore, receive their degree certificate without having to wait until the next degree ceremony.
