Successful candidates who are unable to attend on the appointed day will have their degrees conferred in absentia and their scrolls will be posted to them after the conferring ceremony. 

**Please note that you should get an invitation email, which will be sent to your UCD Connect email, about 3-4 weeks before your conferring ceremony.**

If you have not received an invitation email, we recommend that you check your SISWeb to see if you have passed all of your modules or if you have any holds on your account. If you have passed and have no holds, please contact us.
