Graduation Checklist: Things To Remember

Hey there! If you’re a Centennial student about to graduate, congratulations! Before you officially graduate and get your diploma, there are a few important things you need to do. Here’s a simple guide to help you make sure everything’s in order.  

Apply to Graduate 

Make sure you apply to graduate by March 18. You can do this online through MyCentennial.  Before you apply, double-check that you’ve completed all your academic requirements by doing a degree audit 


Get your grad photos taken

Don’t forget to capture this special moment with a graduation photo! We’ve teamed up with Phoenix Pro Labs to take your pictures. Photo sessions will be available from March 4 to April 26, 2024. Book your appointment early because spots fill up quickly! Book your appointment HERE 


Invite your loved ones 

Share this milestone with your family and friends! If your loved ones need to visit Canada for the graduation ceremony, they might need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). You’ll also need to write a letter inviting them to the ceremony, and we can help you get that letter notarized via our Legal Services. Check out this guide to review the requirements for your invitation letter.

Make sure your info and fees are up-to-date 

To get your diploma, make sure you do not have any outstanding fees, fines, books or equipment on your Centennial account and ensure that your mailing address on your records is correct. Learn more HERE.
For international students: Check your study permit and passport expiry dates. Your study permit should be valid for a few months after your last class, and your passport should be valid for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) application. 


Convocation details 

Convocation for 2024 will take place from June 5 to 7 and June 10 to 14, 2024, at the Athletic and Wellness Centre at Progress Campus. This event will celebrate graduates from Summer 2023, Fall 2023, and Winter 2024. Look out for official dates later in March 2024. If you have any questions or inquiries regarding convocation, please contact [email protected].

We want to congratulate all graduates on this monumental achievement and are grateful to be a part of your college journey! You’re almost at the finish line!
