Graduating in November?

Due to the ongoing public health situation around the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates around the fall convocation ceremony are on hold. Please check back later on in September 2021 for updates on the Office of Convocation website.

Need graduation photos? 

We are unable to offer onsite graduate photo sessions this fall. Please contact CanGrad or New Paramount Studios to book appointments directly to book graduate photo sessions.

Have outstanding fees? 

Diplomas will be held for students who owe fees, and a financial hold will be placed on your financial account and transcripts and confirmation of degree letters will not be released until fees have been paid. Please note that owing a balance of degree fee only is the exception to the diploma hold rule. 

Fees for doctoral students in their final year are based on the date the final thesis is submitted to SGS. Fees are adjusted by the end of the month. Refer to the Graduate Fees tables for complete details.
