Approval Process for Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

First Stage

When you have submitted your application for graduation through UR Self-Service, your faculty or federated college reviews your file to ensure that you will be eligible to graduate when you expect to. If there are any problems, your faculty or federated college will contact you.

Second Stage

Your faculty or federated college now notes on your record that you have applied to graduate, and your progress in your remaining courses is monitored.

Third Stage

Assuming you complete all the courses successfully and maintain the program grade point average (PGPA) you need to graduate, you will next be approved for graduation by your faculty, which will also determine at this stage whether or not you have earned any special mentions such as Distinction.

Fourth Stage

Once your faculty has approved your program as completed, they recommend your name to the University of Regina Executive of Council for formal approval. Executive of Council meets once a month from September to June, except in December. 

All faculties and federated colleges' approval processes and internal deadlines vary. Please contact your faculty or federated college student services office about their internal processes and deadlines as well as your application status. 

Graduate Students: It's important to review the FGSR Deadlines.

Fifth Stage

After Executive of Council's formal approval, the Chancellor confers your credential by signing the lists of graduands. Your degree, diploma, or certificate now appears on your official transcript.
