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:

Update your mailing address

Log into your Student Centre to update your mailing address. You will have until May 20 to ensure your address is up to date in order to receive your parchment and commemorative items.

Log in to your Student Centre (my.ucalgary.ca)

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.
