When you can expect an approval decision
Your faculty will assess your application and approve your graduation application status if you have met your program requirements. Approval decisions should be updated by your faculty on the SSC by mid May or mid November, and conferrals will appear on the SSC about a week before the ceremony.
If you have concerns about your application status or whether you've met your degree requirements, please contact your academic advising office.
