Past Convocation Ceremony Live Streams

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. Deadline for applications is March 19, 2019.

Are you cleared to Graduate?

Students who have completed programs in Summer (August 2018) and Fall (December 2018) 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.

Students who have completed programs in Winter (April 2019) 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 21, 2019, 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 2018) and Fall (2018) semesters will receive their emails starting on May 3, 2019, to their myCentennial email address.

Graduates from the Winter (April 2019) semester will receive their guest ticket email starting on May 15, 2019. 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 30, 2019, to claim their two guest tickets. Starting May 31, 2019, we will release any unclaimed tickets so that all graduates have the opportunity for an additional ticket if they are available.
