Graduation is the term used to acknowledge that you have met your program requirements and that your credential has been conferred by Senate to graduate from the program.
Convocation is a time-honoured tradition, and at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, we look forward to recognizing and celebrating the achievements of our students.
When will I receive my credential?
Students can choose to have their credentials mailed, or presented to them at Convocation. If you choose to have your credential mailed to you, a graduation assessment will be completed upon receipt of your graduation application, and then forwarded to Senate for conferral. Your credential will not be mailed to you until it has been conferred by Senate. This process can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks.
