How do I apply to graduate?

1. 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

2. Apply to graduate

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

How to apply for graduation

3. Submit attendance notification

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

  • Will attend your convocation ceremony
  • Want your degree mailed

4. 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."

5. 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.
