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 

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.
