Students may graduate from the University of Manitoba in Spring, Fall, and February of each year. (Convocation ceremonies are held in Spring and Fall only).
Students are eligible to graduate when they have completed all of the requirements for their degree program in accordance with the regulations described in the University Calendar and the regulations available from the general offices of their faculties and schools.
It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that they meet the graduation requirements of the program in which they are enrolled. Consultation with academic advisors is suggested.
Applying to Graduate
Every candidate for a degree, diploma or certificate must make a formal application at the beginning of the session in which they expect to complete graduation requirements, before the last date of the registration revision period.
Undergraduate students need to declare their intent to graduate. This can be done on-line through Aurora Student. (Log into Aurora, select “Enrolment and Academic Records”, select “Declarations”, and follow the instructions. If the date you wish to graduate does not appear, you will need to contact an advisor in your Faculty as soon as possible; you may have missed the online application deadline).
Graduate students are not able to declare their intent to graduate through Aurora. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will determine when students have completed their requirements and will process their graduation information accordingly.
The deadline date for declaring your intention is the end of the revision period in the term in which you expect to complete your courses. For example:
See ‘Important Dates’ for the specific deadlines for declaring graduation.
Changing a Graduation date
If you need to change your graduation date after you have made your declaration, you must contact the general office of your Faculty/School/Division as soon as possible. If you inadvertently changed your graduation date in Aurora, contact your Faculty immediately.
Students who have taken a course(s) at another university for credit toward their degrees are responsible for ensuring that the Registrar’s Office has received the official transcript(s) from the host university no later than April 30 for Spring graduation, September 30 for Fall graduation, and January 30 for February graduation.
