UCD Conferring will facilitate students to choose which name to be used at their Conferring Ceremony.
Where a student does not provide legal documentation in advance of graduation. The student is notified that parchments will be issued in their legal name.
The student is asked to confirm which name they would like to be called by at the ceremony and printed in the conferring booklet/website etc. This does not have to match their legal name on the parchment.
