The online application for November 2023 graduation is now open for eligible students. Enrollment Services will not be sending out a notification to students, as they don’t want to also capture (and confuse) those students who are expecting to graduate in May 2024, instead. If you are aware of any student who missed graduating in May 2023 and should apply to graduate in Nov 2023, please let them know to apply, now.
Please encourage eligible students to apply regardless of outstanding fees or current progress of their program (ie. waiting for final grades from exams, or thesis due by October). Students have until Friday, October 20, 2023 (for G+PS Administered programs only) to submit their application through the Student Service Centre (SSC). The link to the application can be found under Graduation, after the students have logged in.
