When will I know when my application has been approved?
Your application to graduate will be reviewed by your faculty in October (for the fall ceremony) and in April (for the spring ceremony). The final approval will be noted on your graduation application in the Student Service Centre (SSC) about a week prior to the congregation ceremony.
I just looked at my graduation application and the status has changed. What does it mean?
In your graduation application, between applying and your graduation day, you will notice changes in your application. Below is a list of terms you may see on your application and what they mean:
Applied for Graduation
Your application has been received. Applications will be reviewed once the graduation application closes. Please ensure that all requirements are met by the deadline for graduation.
Your application will remain pending until all final grades are in, and your file has been approved by the Dean of your faculty.
Graduation Not Approved
Your application for graduation has not been approved by your faculty/school. Contact your faculty/school if you believe that you have met graduation requirements and should be eligible to graduate. Otherwise, you will need to re-apply for graduation in a subsequent session when you become eligible to graduate.
Your application has been withdrawn and will not be evaluated for graduation. You must re-apply for a subsequent session.
Your file is complete, and your application has been approved by the Dean of your faculty. Your credential will not appear on your transcript until Senate meets to approve all graduates and confer their degrees.
Your degree has been conferred (awarded) by senate and your credentials will appear on your transcript. Senate usually confers degrees during its regular monthly meeting about a week before graduation ceremonies.
My degree is not noted on my transcript yet, but I need proof that I've completed all my requirements. What should I do?
Contact your program/faculty advising office to request a letter of completion.
I have missed the deadline to apply for graduation. Can I still graduate?
Please contact your faculty or departmental advising office.
