Graduating in March or June?

Congratulations, soon-to-be graduates! Here’s some important information for you regarding your graduation: 

Need graduation photos? 

We are unable to offer onsite graduate photo sessions this spring. Please contact CanGrad or New Paramount Studios to book appointments directly when these businesses are able to book graduate photo sessions. 

Need to change your name or add accents or characters for June graduation? 

Virtual June Ceremony  

Please note that the Chancellor will be conferring degrees on our June 2021 grads in a virtual ceremony on June 23, 2021. Your diploma will be couriered to you. Please ensure that you have a permanent address on ACORN, and that it is up to date by June 1, 2021.  

Is your name missing accents?  

If so, please download and complete the June 2021 Name on Diploma form on the Office of Convocation website and return the form to the address provided. Please follow the instructions on the form. Please note that this form is only for accents. The deadline to return the form to the Office of Convocation is April 22, 2021.  

Do you need to change your name?  

The deadline for name changes for the June 2021 Convocation is April 22, 2021. Your name as it appears in ACORN is the name that will appear on your diploma.  

For any other changes to your name (e.g. change due to marriage/divorce, adding a middle name, spelling corrections etc.), please fill out the name change form, available on the SGS website by April 22, 2021.  

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.
