Important info about late requests to attend the ceremony
The Ceremonies Office cannot guarantee ticket availability.
Your diploma may not be available at the ceremony, but will be available for pickup or courier in either December (if you are graduating in November) or June (if you are graduating in May).
If you can't make the ceremony
If you indicated that you were attending the ceremony on the application but can no longer make it, you can pick up your diploma at the Enrolment Advising Centre in Brock Hall in early December for the Fall ceremony or early June for the Spring ceremony. If you prefer courier delivery, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to defer your attendance to the ceremony
You may request to defer attendance to the next ceremony. Email email@example.com to submit your request.
Please note that the office receives many requests to defer ceremony attendance from students who are not able to attend their own ceremony for various reasons. However, because our graduation ceremonies are held at the Chan Centre which is a small venue and has limited seating, we are only able to guarantee attendance ahead of time to those students who have applied to graduate in the period for which the ceremony occurs. Once the Graduation Department confirms attendance numbers from those applicants, deferrals are considered where possible.
