K. Graduation

The various deadline dates pertaining to Convocation are set out in the Academic Schedule. Students are strongly advised to acquaint themselves with these dates.

K.1 Application for Degree

All students who expect to receive degrees or diplomas at one of the Spring (May or June) or Fall Convocations must complete an online Application for Degree, available through the Student Centre via the Portal at https://my.ucalgary.ca. Students who do not complete an Application for Degree form will not be included in the graduation list. The deadlines for such applications are December 31 for Winter graduation, February 1 for Spring (May and June) Convocations and August 15 for Fall Convocation.

K.2 Convocation Requirements

In order to be cleared to graduate, thesis-based students must successfully pass a final thesis oral examination, submit an unbound copy of the thesis, a University of Calgary Partial Copyright Licence, and a Department Recommendation for Convocation Clearance form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, and fulfill graduate program requirements for the submission of thesis copies.

If a student has not been cleared to graduate before the student’s next annual registration date, the student must register. If the student does not register, the student will be withdrawn for failure to register. When the student subsequently applies for re-admission to graduate, the student will be assessed fees retroactive to the date of withdrawal.
