Missed Deadline to Apply to Graduate

 If you have missed the deadline to apply to graduate you must:

  • Apply to graduate to the next available semester;
  • Complete an Academic Regulation Appeal Form outlining the reason(s) for the late submission and why your application to graduate should be considered.

Note: Late applications for graduation will only be considered within 30 days of the deadline of the term they are appealing to graduate from and if all program requirements will have been met by the grades due date.

Parchments will be available to be picked up at the Student Experience Hub on the second level of Dalton Hall during regular business hours beginning on the availability dates identified for each graduation term. If you have previously picked up your parchment and plan to attend Convocation you will still be issued a parchment folder at the event.

Parchment mailing is available for addresses outside of Prince Edward Island only. A graduate may request parchment mailing on their application to graduate. Requests will be processed on or shortly after the parchment availability date.
