Graduation

It's time to graduate! All your hard work has paid off!

There are important tasks you have to complete in order to graduate:

  1. Apply to graduate. This is mandatory for your degree to be conferred.
  2. Make sure that your thesis or dissertation (or for programs not requiring a thesis/dissertation, your "program completion memo") has been submitted to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
  3. Make sure that all courses you have taken have a grade entered for them.
  4. Make sure your UBC financial account is settled. You will not receive a diploma or be able to order transcripts with an outstanding balance of fees.
  5. If you are a doctoral student, submit your doctoral citation.

For questions about applying to graduate, please contact gradapplications@students.ubc.ca

Students in the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies can have degrees awarded on any one of four dates in a given year, in February, May, September, and November. See Rolling Graduation for important information.
