UFV recognizes your graduation by awarding you a degree, diploma, or certificate.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all program requirements are met. This should be done by regular program review with an academic advisor and/or consultation with the appropriate department.
Please note that the Office of the Registrar manages academic issues related to graduation and is responsible for maintaining the academic records for all students at UFV. The University Relations department coordinates the convocation event.
Every candidate for graduation needs to submit a Graduation Request (pdf) form to any Office of the Registrar.
You can submit graduation requests anytime during the semester in which you will complete your program requirements. Requests submitted by April 1 (or the next business day following April 1) are $25. All program requirements must be completed by the Winter semester grade deadline.
If you are completing your requirements in the summer semester, your application will NOT be processed until after June and you will NOT be eligible to attend this year’s convocation ceremony.
Your up-to-date mailing address, telephone number, and email address should be on your student record. This is important in order for us to contact you regarding any problems or questions which affect your graduation eligibility. The University Relations department will also mail information to all graduation candidates in May, regarding upcoming convocation information. Please verify your contact information on myUFV.
