Graduation Information

Undergraduate and Diploma Students

Applying to Graduate

An email is normally sent to each student registered at the University in the 4th semester of an associate diploma program, in the 6th semester of a general program and in the 8th semester of an honours program, inviting the student to apply for the upcoming convocation via WebAdvisor. Students who wish to apply for graduation but are not eligible to do so via WebAdvisor can download a hard copy application or email the Undergraduate Graduation and Convocation Coordinator to request one.
