In January of 2015, Senate approved the implementation of “convocation in absentia.”
This means that if you’ll have completed your degree requirements by the end of the fall 2015 term, you can apply to receive a degree conferral in February 2016 rather than waiting until June.
This will allow:
- The graduating decision to be reflected on your record and transcript
- Your program to be closed as “completed”
- You may pick up a diploma or have it delivered by filling out a Diploma Mailing Form (available on the website: www.yorku.ca/mygraduation/)
- Your name will appear on YuVerify for degree verification as having convocated in February
There is no February ceremony but students who choose this option will be included in all ceremonial aspects of the following June convocation. They will be included in invitations, their names will appear in the June convocation program booklet and they will be considered for awards along with the June cohort.
