Graduation eligibility

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the courses required to graduate. If you need some help determining whether you're eligible to graduate, please set up a meeting with our Student Academic Advisor or call 403.338.5598.

Graduation application deadline

You must submit an Application for Graduation form regardless of whether or not you plan to attend the convocation ceremony. Please complete the application that was emailed to you or pick it up at the Registrar’s Office. The completed form must be returned to the Registrar’s Office no later than the last Friday in November.

Graduation fees

A required graduation fee has been assessed with your tuition. If you have been missed the Registrar’s Office will contact you to pay this fee.

Courses from other institutions

If you’re completing courses you require to graduate at another institution, make sure your official transcripts are received by the ACAD Registrar’s Office absolutely no later than May 1st. If you are unable to provide official transcripts by the deadline, but have a final grade that your instructor can report via email to the ACAD Registrar’s Office and the Registrar of the Institution you took the course at by May 1st, we will proceed to work towards graduating you on an interim basis. Official transcripts still must be received prior to the convocation ceremony to graduate.
