- Degrees Conferred at Commencement -- Degrees shall be conferred at commencement and at such other times during the year and in such manner as the President and Committee of Deans may decide; provided, however, that a candidate for a degree may, at his own request, have his degree conferred only at commencement. Degrees which are to be conferred at a commencement will be conferred only on candidates who are present, except that a degree may be conferred in absentia on a candidate whose absence may be excused, for cause deemed sufficient, by the Committee of Deans.
