Graduation is the term used to acknowledge that a student has met all program requirements, and the credential has been confirmed by the Office of the Registrar and approved by KPU's Senate.
Each candidate for a credential must submit an application for graduation.
When will I be notified if my application for graduation has been approved?
If you submit an application for graduation while still completing required courses, your application will be processed after final grades are received and sent to Senate for approval.
If you submit an application for graduation after having completed all required courses, your application will be processed as soon as possible, and then sent to Senate for approval.
The time required to review an application, confirm graduation status and receive Senate approval varies over the course of the year. Timing can depend on the number of applications being processed, the meeting dates for Senate and the details of each student’s academic record.
The current time from submission of an application for graduation to final approval is approximately 3 months.
How will I be notified?
The online Graduation Roll is updated each month to include all students approved by Senate. Updates normally happen the day following each Senate meeting.
A student whose name appears on the Graduation Roll may order an official transcript that states the credential awarded.
Please do not enquire about the status of your application unless more than 3 months has elapsed. Any inquiry should be sent to email@example.com from a KPU student email address and include both your full name and student number.
