Preparing for Graduation

Congratulations! Your years of hard work have paid off and you’re about to graduate from UTSC. Here are a few things you need to do before you receive your degree.

Make sure you have met your program and degree requirements

Check the degree and program requirements by logging into Degree Explorer with your UTOR ID and password. You can review your requirements to see if they have been marked as pending or completed.

It’s best to use Degree Explorer together with the online calendar to check the correct requirements for your program.

Remember, completing all degree and program requirements is your responsibility.

What if a requirement is not marked as pending or completed?

There are several reasons this may have happened. For example, it’s possible you may have a course substitution form that has not yet been entered into Degree Explorer. If you’re concerned, please speak with an Academic and Learning Strategist.

You may also be asked to meet with your program supervisor if you have concerns about your program requirements. This is especially important if you have transfer credits.

Still not sure if you’re eligible to graduate?

If you’d like extra help to determine if you’ve met your degree and program requirements, schedule an Academic Advising Appointment.

Confirm your intent to graduate

This can be done on ACORN the semester before you plan to graduate. Requirements, timelines and instructions for confirming graduation are on the Office of the Registrar’s website.

Degree planning appointments at the AA&CC are not official degree audits. Final degree audits are performed by the Office of the Registrar before convocation.

Find your Graduation Ceremony date

UTSC holds Convocation in June and November. More information about tickets, dates and location are on the Office of the Registrar's graduation section.
