Course Completion and Graduation Ceremonies

Graduating from Western has changed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing needs of our students.

By registering to graduate your academic record will be assessed. If you have completed all requirements for your course and are eligible to graduate, we will complete your student record and your award will be conferred.

Once your award is conferred, we will mail your graduation documents directly to you – you don’t need to wait for a graduation ceremony to be held. In order for us to send your graduation documents, you will need to confirm your delivery address details and make payment for postage through OneStop.

We are mailing your documents to you to ensure that you won’t be delayed in applying for further study or employment once you’ve completed your studies at Western.

You will also be invited to attend a graduation ceremony after your award is conferred.

November 2021 Ceremonies

COVID-19 has made holding graduation ceremonies difficult. Ceremonies currently planned for November 2022 have been postponed due to the current public health order. More information will be sent to graduates registered to attend ceremonies in November as soon as we can confirm when rescheduled ceremonies will occur. We appreciate your patience at this time.

2022 Applications to Graduate

Registrations for Round 1 (April/May) 2022 are currently open. Please refer to the Key Graduation Deadlines page for more information about important dates for this round.

Graduated before 2021 and need your graduation documents?

If you graduated in absentia prior to 2021 and would now like to pay to receive your graduation documents, please email and we will provide you with details on how to make payment. Due to current public health orders we have limited access to campus facilities and there may be a delay in accessing your graduation documents to post to you.

Important Note for Printed Academic Document Orders

In order to keep our staff safe, we have currently limited staff access to campus. This may mean that there is a delay in processing of your order for printed academic documents. Please allow ample time for processing when placing your order.
