    Your name will be displayed on your parchment exactly how it is shown on WebAdvisor. Please ensure your name is spelled correctly on WebAdvisor before submitting your Application to Graduate. Notice of legal name changes must be submitted to office GH108 along with the Notice of Change of Name form.
  3. Update your address

    You must complete your Notice of Change of Address forms prior to completing your Application to Graduate in order to receive all communication related to Convocation, including graduation tickets. Notice of Change of Address forms completed after an Application to Graduate will not be reflected on your student file and we cannot guarantee you will receive all relevant communication.

  4. Verify your academic standing
    Your standing on graduation is determined by your cumulative average. To find your standing on graduation, log in to WebAdvisor to view your Academic Profile. From there, select Academic Program & Evaluation to review your Profile Sheet. This will clearly outline if you have completed your graduation requirements. Questions about this can be answered by your Academic Advisor.
  5. Submit an Application to Graduate
    The online for Applications to Graduate was due on Friday, March 2, 2018. Any applications submitted past the deadline will be subject to a $60 processing fee. You can access the application from WebAdvisor. After Friday, March 16, 2018, all applications for graduation must be completed in person using a paper application at Student Financial Services (GH 112).
    Failure to complete this application will affect your ability to graduate.

  6. Declare an Area of Emphasis
    If your program supports the choice of an Area of Emphasis or Specialty, please complete a Declaration of Area of Emphasis form. The Area of Emphasis or Specialty will be noted on your transcripts.  For the Business and Justice Studies programs, your Humber parchment will also note your Area of Emphasis or Specialty.
  7. Pay outstanding University accounts
    Any graduating student who has an outstanding balance at the time of Convocation, will be placed on Financial Sanction and will not be issued the official degree or diploma parchment at the convocation ceremony. Parchments will be withheld until payment is made.
