To be eligible to be considered for graduation with a certificate as prescribed by Senate, a student must successfully complete all program requirements. Students must submit an Application to Graduate in order to determine if they are eligible to graduate.

Students eligible to graduate will be invited to attend Convocation (graduation ceremonies). Convocation is held in the Spring and Fall of each year.

Note: Applicants awaiting decisions on pending Challenge Credits, Course Exception (substitutions/directives), program transfers, or Transfer Credits should still apply to graduate. However, in order to qualify for graduation, all credits must be approved and posted on the student’s academic record prior to the final date to clear all outstanding academic graduation requirements.

Graduating in Absentia

Graduation award documents will be presented to students who attend their convocation ceremony. If you do not attend the ceremony, you may pick up your document on campus or arrange to have it couriered to you.

Please note that all outstanding fees owed to the University must be cleared in order to receive your award document (this applies whether you attend Convocation or you are graduating in absentia).
