Graduation & Convocation

The University has implemented rolling conferral of degrees. Degrees can be awarded to students every month during the months of September, October, November, January, February, March, April, May and June. These are the months that Executive of Council of the University of Regina meets to approve prospective graduands. Once the degree has been awarded, it will be shown on the transcript. Students may request an official transcript to certify that they have earned the degree.

Students must apply to graduate In order to have their application for graduation go forward for conferral of degrees, all requirements for the degree must be met by the end of the previous month. For example, if Executive of Council meets on September 22, all requirements for the degree must be met by August 31.

Although degrees are awarded every month, diplomas are distributed at the formal convocation ceremonies held in the Spring and Fall. Students who are unable to attend a formal convocation ceremony to receive their diploma can request an early release of the parchment by completing the Early Release of Parchment form and submitting it, along with the required fee, to the Registrar’s Office. There is no charge for diplomas handed out at ceremonies.
