Registration for the Conferment Ceremony is open from November 21st 2016 until March 26th  April 2nd 2017. Registration is done via an online form. Anyone graduating later in the spring must also register by this date, keeping in mind that they must graduate before the Conferment Act. Registration is binding and non-refundable. The payment must be completed during the registration. After the registration period has ended, the Conferment Committee will send each promovendus an info booklet which describes all the details the participants need to know (such as the final programme and detailed dress code).
Information about the possible companion also needs to be filled during the registration, unless the companion is a promovendus him/herself.

The Conferment Committee will compile a Conferment Matricula from all the masters and doctors conferred either in person or in absentia. The registration form will also ask for Information for the matricula, so you should reserve about 30 minutes of time for filling the form. It’s also recommended to become acquainted with the programme and the dress code before filling the form. Fields not affecting the payments are possible to correct until the end of the registration period. The matricula will be distributed to the promovendi and other guests in the Conferment Act. Those conferred in absentia will have the matricula mailed to them after the Conferment Ceremony.

In addition to filling in the registration form, all promovendi need to deliver a copy of their diploma (“tutkintotodistus”) in order to confirm their eligibility to participate. It can either be brought to the Conferment Office or sent to the Committee via email or traditional mail.

  • I have graduated by the time of registration
    Please deliver the copy of your diploma as soon as possible after filling in the registration form.
  • I will graduate after my registration, but before the act
    Please deliver a copy of your diploma to the Conferment Committee immediately after graduating. If you will not graduate before May 2017,a written confirmation from your faculty must be delivered to the Conferment Committee  to ensure that you have been registered to graduate in May.

If your name has changed after you graduated, you should also supply the Conferment Committee a copy of your marriage certificate or some official identification papers (such as a passport or driver’s licence).

Jubilee masters and doctors do not need to deliver copies of their diplomas or identification.

The venues used in the Conferment Ceremony restrict the amount of participants. If there are more interested participants than is possible for the venues, we will be selecting participants in order of registration, i.e. first-come-first-serve.
