Obtain my degree or diploma if I miss convocation

If students cannot attend convocation they can obtain their degree or diploma though other methods. 

If you are NOT attending the Convocation Ceremony you will have two options which will allow you to receive your degree/diploma. Please remember that if you are financially indebited to the University, no testimonal, diploma, certificate or statement of examination record will be issued.

Option 1:

  • If you live in PEI, you may pick up your degree/diploma at the Registrar’s Office, front counter, the week following the ceremony. If someone else is picking up your degree, please have a note signed by you authorizing us to release your degree. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Option 2:

  • If you live off-island, you may request to have your degree/diploma mailed to you after Convocation Day. Please note that we do our best to ensure the degree arrives to you and in good shape but we cannot guarantee this.
