Thinking of Graduation

Before you begin the application process for graduation, check that you have completed the necessary requirements for the Associate Diploma in Turfgrass Management as follows:

Students in Associate Diploma programs require a minimum of 12.00 credits to graduate. A minimum of 6.00 credits must be earned in the specific diploma program at the University; a maximum of 6.00 transfer credits for approved equivalent courses will be allowed.

In the Turfgrass Management Diploma program, a minimum of 11.00 credits must be related to the program of study.

If you still have questions about your eligibility to graduate, then book an appointment to review your Program/Academic Evaluation with your Program Counsellor.

Be sure to pay all University debt. You will not be permitted to graduate if you have any outstanding fines or fees such as Library fines.

Graduation Application

You will receive a personalized email from the Registrar's Office with information about graduation applications, deadlines, and fees when you have met the minimum number of credits (12.0 credits) required to apply for graduation. These credits may or may not be the appropriate credits required for your diploma, so it is recommended that you read through the details above and below before you proceed with the official application process.

You apply for graduation online using WebAdvisor. The application is found by logging onto WebAdvisor and selecting "Application for Graduation" under "Academic Profile". You want to be sure to apply before the application deadline to avoid paying a late fee. The online application is available only during certain times of the year.

Detailed instructions for completing the online graduation application is available at the Registrar's Office.

After completing and submitting your application, you can check your submission by logging off and logging into WebAdvisor. Follow the same link as you did for your initial application to check the status of your application.

After Applications have been Submitted:

After a student applies for graduation and after the 40th class day (the last day to drop courses for that semester) your Program/Academic Evaluations are printed by the Registrar's Office and sent to your Program Counsellor. Graduation Application evaluations are assessed by your Program Counsellor and Faculty Advisor to determine your eligibility to graduate. You may fall into one of three categories: "Eligible to Graduate", "Tentative Graduation" (need to successfully complete courses in progress), or "Not Eligible to Graduate". This decision is then returned to the Registrar's Office. If you are not eligible to graduate you will be contacted by the DTM Program Counsellor as well as the Registrar’s Office by email.
