G.N. Graduation

The deadline dates for Convocation requirements are set out in the Academic Schedule. Students are strongly encouraged to review these dates.

G.N.1 Application for Graduation

All students who expect to have their degrees or diplomas conferred must complete an online Application for Graduation, available through the Student Centre at Students who do not complete an Application for Graduation before the posted deadlines will not be cleared to graduate. The deadlines to apply to graduate are available online at

At the time of the application, students will also be asked if they wish to attend the Convocation Ceremony (see Attendance_Notification.docx).

G.N.2 Convocation Requirements

In order to be cleared to graduate, thesis-based students must successfully pass a final thesis oral examination, submit an electronic copy of the thesis to the University of Calgary Theses Repository - the Vault, submit all required forms to the Faculty of Graduate Studies office, and fulfill graduate program requirements for the submission of thesis copies.

If a student has not been cleared to graduate before the student’s next annual registration date, the student must register. If the student does not register, the student will be withdrawn for failure to register. When the student subsequently applies for re-admission to graduate, the student will be assessed fees retroactive to the date of withdrawal.

The University of Calgary, located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta (districts 5 and 6).

The University of Calgary is situated on land Northwest of where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, a site traditionally known as Moh’kins’tsis to the Blackfoot, Wîchîspa to the Stoney Nakoda, and Guts’ists’i to the Tsuut’ina. On this land and in this place we strive to learn together, walk together, and grow together “in a good way.”
