Doctoral Conferment Ceremony

The university's Doctoral Conferment Ceremony traditionally takes place on the last Friday in May each year. The doctoral graduates who completed their research studies and successfully defended their theses during the past year, or will defend their thesis no later than Tuesday in the week of the conferment cermony, receive an invitation. The ceremony is arranged by the university's chief marshal, who also provides information on procedures for ordering a doctor's ring and doctor's hat.


Questions concerning the ceremony are answered by the Conferment Ceremony Expedition.
