Apply to Graduate

All students who are intending to graduate must complete an Application to Graduate form. This can be accessed through your myCentennial portal. The deadline for applications is April 13, 2020.

Are you cleared to Graduate?

Students who have completed programs in Summer (August 2019) and Fall (December 2019) and who applied to graduate will be sent letters and an email to your myCentennial email at the beginning of May. This letter indicates your graduation status and information about Convocation Guest Tickets. International students, please click here for more info.

Students who have completed programs in Winter (April 2020) and have applied to graduate will have their student records reviewed and cleared to graduate during the month of May. You will receive an email to your myCentennial email address starting the week of May 19, 2020, right through until Convocation begins. This email indicates your graduation status.

If you want to check to see if you are ready to graduate or what you have, outstanding in order to graduate you can perform a “Degree Audit” from your myCentennial portal.

Convocation Guest Tickets

The link to claim your two guest tickets will be sent to your myCentennial email address. Graduates will be able to claim their guest tickets and either print them for their guests or forward them by email.

Graduates from the Summer (August 2019) and Fall (2019) semesters will receive their emails starting on May 4, 2020, to their myCentennial email address.

Graduates from the Winter (April 2020) semester will receive their guest ticket email starting on May 19, 2020. Please note that just because you receive a guest ticket email, this email is not a confirmation that you have been cleared to graduate.

All graduates have until May 31, 2020, to claim their two guest tickets. Starting June 1, 2020, we will release any unclaimed tickets so that all graduates have the opportunity for an additional ticket if they are available.

On the day of the ceremony

Guest ticket bar codes can be presented electronically or in a printed form. Please take note of the following:

  • Each ticket has a unique bar code. Duplicate tickets will be declined at the door.
  • Tickets are required for each guest, including children, to enter the Convocation Ceremony. Graduates do not require a ticket.
  • Tickets are limited to two guests per graduate.
  • Seating is on a first-come first-seated basis. Once the gym reaches capacity remaining ticket holders will be seated in overflow viewing rooms.
  • Seating begins 30 minutes prior to the start of each ceremony.
  • Seating areas can accommodate a wheelchair or walker.
  • All ceremonies are closed-captioned.

Note: Please log in to your myCentennial portal and check your myCentennial email directly from the portal and check both your Inbox and Junk Mailbox for the guest ticket link.
