Applying for your Confirmation of Graduation

In order to receive a credential for your program, you must apply for your final certificate and transcript at the Main Office. There is a $5 fee for all transcript requests. Students are encouraged to apply for their final documents during the semester in which they are completing their program requirements in order to receive their confirmation as soon as possible after their final grades have been published.

Once final grades are published, and if we have received your transcript and certificate request, we aim to have your documents ready for collection within 8-10 business days.

Transcript Holds

If there is a hold on your account, such as a library, tuition or study permit hold, you will not be able to collect your final documents. We recommend that you work to resolve any holds before you finish your final exams.

Applying to Attend a Graduation Ceremony

We hold a Graduation & Awards ceremony each year. Often, ceremonies take place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.

All students who have completed their degree or certificate in the year preceding the ceremony are invited to apply to attend the ceremony. If you would like to attend, please complete the graduation application form

Each student will be able to invite two guests to attend the ceremony with them to celebrate. Tickets will be available for collection from Student Services a month before the date of the ceremony.
