Rotating:
Only 1 member within a rotating schedule will attend each ceremony. The rotating members will decide among each other which ceremony they will attend. If the members are unable to decide the dean’s office will appoint the members. If a member is unable to attend the ceremony they are assigned to they should try to trade with each other or find someone that has a degree that can serve in their stead. PhD students cannot sub for an assigned marshal.

Alternate:
Alternate members should be aware of the commencement ceremony dates in case they are needed. Regular assigned members are required to attend unless they have an urgent or unavoidable conflict. Due to the number of marshals needed for the spring ceremony alternates may also have to serve as marshal.
