Please note, if you apply for deferred exam, supplementary assessment, Special Consideration or Review of Grade for Spring, Summer or T3 Session you will only be able to graduate if your results are loaded by the advertised deadlines. Unfortunately no extensions past the graduation deadlines are possible.

In order to be eligible to graduate in April, you must register to graduate before registrations for April Graduation close and have completed all your course requirements by the advertised graduation deadlines. If you miss the deadlines your registration will automatically be moved to September graduations.

Unfortunately no extensions past the graduation deadlines are possible.

December ceremonies

Due to the tight time frame between the final Spring Session exams and the December graduation ceremonies, there can be no extension beyond the Spring results release for any reason.

Please note, if you apply for a deferred exam, supplementary assessment, Special Consideration or Review of Grade or are completing cross institutional study or enrolled in Quarter 4, you will not be eligible to participate in the December graduation ceremonies.

Due to the short turnaround times, confirmation of eligibility and ceremony details will not be available until 1 week before the ceremonies take place (it is not possible to provide this information earlier). If this is too short notice for you, please register and/or defer for April graduation ceremonies.

Why is graduation important?

Graduation is an important milestone for all students. University graduation ceremonies are steeped in centuries of history and tradition. They are a rite of passage, marking the formal end of tertiary study and the beginning of a new career. It is a time for students to reflect on their achievements and celebrate with friends, family, Our staff and all those who have supported them through their studies.
