Convocation checklist

Verify your program

Connect with your faculty advisor to ensure that your program information (including your major, minor, area of study, specialization, etc.) is correct in your Student Centre. If your information is not correct, you must meet with an advisor - this update cannot be made through your Student Centre.

Also verify with your advisor:

  • Degree requirements completed
  • Your eligibility to graduate

Apply to graduate

Once you have verified your program information complete your online application to graduate in your Student Centre. Choose "Apply for Graduation" and fill in the webform.

Submit attendance notification

In your Student Centre, go to "Convocation Status" to indicate whether you:

  • Will attend your convocation ceremony
  • Want your degree mailed
  • Want to pickup your degree on the specified dates

To obtain your degree after the attendance notification deadline, you will need to submit a degree mailing request form.

Please note, the Convocation Office only retains uncollected parchments for one year past the ceremony date.

Check faculty approval

Your faculty will review your application to graduate approximately three weeks prior to the conferral date. You can view the status of your application under "Convocation Status."

Clear any outstanding fees

If you have outstanding fees owing to the university, you're allowed to graduate and attend your convocation ceremony. However, until the account is cleared, you won't be able to receive your degree(s), transcripts, other official degree documentation or be eligible to register in courses.

Please refer to the Pay your Fees site for information on fee payment options.
