Applying to graduate
In order to graduate, students must submit a formal application for graduation via the Student Service Centre (SSC).
You are required to apply for graduation, even if you don’t plan on attending the ceremony.
While completing your application, check your legal name and your listed specializations for accuracy. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if there are any errors. Once you have completed your grad application, hit the SUBMIT button to ensure your application is sent to Enrolment Services.
Note: UBC has no graduation fee.
Eligibility to graduate
May graduation: Your program requirements must be completed by April 30.
November graduation: Your program requirements must be completed by October 31.
- If you are completing term 1 courses in December, you are not eligible for November graduation and should wait to apply for May graduation. If you have questions about your degree requirements, contact an academic advisor.
Make sure your financial account with UBC is settled. You will not receive a diploma or be able to order transcripts with an outstanding balance of fees. You’ll still be able to attend the ceremony, but will not receive your diploma when you cross the stage. If you have questions about your finances, contact email@example.com.
