Graduation takes place in November, March, and June. Note: there is no ceremony in March; degrees are awarded in absentia.
Students must graduate at the ceremony immediately following completion of their degree requirements. Delay of graduation is not permitted. Exception: students who complete their degree requirements by the end of the Fall Session may choose to delay until June in order to attend a ceremony.
Information about time, location, and obtaining tickets for convocation ceremonies are normally sent to students approximately three weeks prior to convocation. Please ensure your address is correct on ROSI. Also be sure to refer to the Office of Convocation website for important information.
Applying to Graduate
Master's students are required to submit an Application to Graduate to the OISE Registrar's Office by the following dates:
July 15 - if completing in the Summer Session (November graduation)
October 15 - if completing in the Fall Session (March or June graduation)
March 15 - if completing in the Winter Session (June graduation)
Further information about deadlines is available at Important Dates.
Note: September 27, 2013 is the deadline to make a name change for students graduating in November 2013.
Students should review their name on ROSI, as this is the name as it will appear on your diploma. Your name on the title page and abstract of your thesis must also be exactly as you are officially registered on ROSI. If the necessary change(s) are not made by the deadline for name changes set by the Office of Convocation, there is an $80.00 fee to have a new diploma printed.
Students who have outstanding fees will be permitted to attend the convocation ceremony. However, they will not receive their diploma at the ceremony. Transcripts and diplomas will not be released until fees have been paid.
Transcripts are not automatically sent upon graduating. Students are responsible for ordering transcripts through ROSI if they require that a copy be sent anywhere.
