If I am eligible to graduate, but cannot attend the convocation ceremony, can I attend and participate in another graduation ceremony?
If you were recommended to graduate by the academic area and your diploma/certificate/degree has been printed but you could not attend the graduation ceremony, you may participate in the following convocation ceremony.
However, you must first submit a letter to the convocation coordinator stating a valid reason for why you could not attend. The convocation coordinator will respond with a letter of permission which will be required to gain access to the next scheduled event.
What if I cannot attend the graduation ceremony? How do I obtain my degree/diploma/certificate?
Beginning the week following convocation your degree, diploma, or certificate may be picked up from the Markham Campus Registration Office.
Office Hours: Monday – Thursday: 8:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
One piece of photo ID will be required. If you wish to have someone else pick up your degree, diploma or certificate, provide them with a letter of authorization, signed by you. They will need their own photo ID.
