Convocation Ceremony – 14 June 2019


About to graduate? You’ve nearly made it!

Before you can receive your degree, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, you must register in order to receive your degree, whether or not you are attending your Convocation ceremony on June 14, 2019. There will be two graduation ceremonies, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. More information will be made available soon.

Evaluating whether you are eligible to graduate 

At the beginning of your final term at Saint Paul University, an evaluation of your file is conducted to determine if you are eligible to graduate. If you are, you will receive an email at your address with instructions on how to register.

Once you’ve registered, the Registrar’s Office will analyze your file in greater depth to confirm that you meet your program requirements. Once you’ve successfully completed them, your name is submitted to the Senate to be confirmed for graduation. If for some reason your degree is not granted at this time, you must resubmit the Request for Diploma form for a subsequent graduation.

If you don’t receive an email 

If you think you have met the requirements of your program by the end of the 2019 winter term and have not received an email asking you to complete the Registration for Degree and Request for Diploma form, please contact the Registrar’s Office at

If you have an amount owing on your Saint Paul University account  

If you have an amount owing on your Saint Paul University account (anything from a library fine to tuition fees), you will not be able to participate in the Convocation ceremony, nor will you receive diplomas, certificates, transcripts or enrolment verification documents (statements of studies, statements of degrees conferred).

Registration to graduate

All graduating students must register in order to receive their degree. Online registration for the spring graduation is open until March 31, 2019.

If you are expected to graduate, you will receive an email at your address when online registration opens.

How to register 

To apply, log into uoCampus. Under the Self Service menu, select Degree Progress/Graduation, select Apply for Graduation, then follow the instructions on the page. Once you have applied, you can track your graduation status at any time.

Note: If missed the registration period above, you must submit a completed Registration for Degree and Request for Diploma (PDF) form to the Registrar’s Office at

Name Pronunciation 

On the registration form, indicate how the presenter should pronounce your name. To help the presenter read your name clearly, write ONLY the phonetic pronunciation of your name in the designated box (see examples of what to do and what not to do below).

You can select the language in which your name should be pronounced (English or French) from a separate list on the form.

Name Change

Make sure your personal information is correct. Your personal data will be displayed as it currently appears in uoCampus, the student information system. Your name on the screen (your “primary name”) is the one that appears on your official documents, such as your diploma and transcripts.

To change your primary name, go to the Office of the Registrar and submit a Request for Name Change form, along with the supporting documents listed on the form. 

For your name change request to be processed before your diploma is printed, you must submit your form by March 31, 2019, to graduate in the spring.

If you have recently made a name change request, it may take up to two weeks before the change appears.


More details will be made available in the coming weeks.
