Graduate Graduation Application

Submit the completed application to the Registrar's Office. A completed Graduate Permanent Program form must be on file in the Registrar's Office before your academic record can be audited for degree requirements.

A separate audit is required for each degree or graduate certificate. For instance, a student graduating with both a master's degree and a graduate certificate must submit separate applications and receive a separate audit for each.

Applying for graduation

Your assigned graduation auditor will perform an initial audit of your academic records to verify that all your degree requirements have been met. You will receive an email detailing any (if any) outstanding obligations and other information approximately 8 – 10 weeks after your application has been received by the Registrar’s Office.


A $45 fee will be applied to your student account when the application is submitted to the Registrar’ Office.
