Once you have enrolled in or applied for credit in your final courses for your program, you must apply for graduation. Do not wait for final grades of your final program courses. This application must be done well in advance of the Convocation ceremony and must be done within the specified deadline dates. Applications to graduate at the June ceremonies are usually accepted between November and February prior to the ceremony. For the October/November ceremonies, applications are usually made in June and July.
By applying for graduation, you are notifying the University that you expect to complete your program and are ready to graduate. You must apply to graduate even if you do not plan to attend the Convocation ceremony.
There is no application fee. However, if you apply during the Late Application period, you must pay a late application fee using a valid VISA, MasterCard or AMEX card.
If you do not have a valid credit card or do not have access to RAMSS, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
For more information about applying for graduation and deadline dates, see the www.ryerson.ca/curriculum-advising website.
If you want to be considered for graduation with a Minor:
You can select a minor only after you have completed the basic application to graduate. Once you have successfully submitted your application to graduate, use the Select Minor link on the RAMSS My Academics page.
If your program offers concentrations and you wish to be considered for graduation with a Concentration:
You can add a concentration, if you have not already done so, by using the Change Concentration link on the RAMSS My Academics page.
If you are active in multiple programs, be sure to scroll down to see all programs. (If you are applying to graduate from multiple programs, you must apply separately to each one.)
About Your Name:
The name shown in red on the Apply for Graduation page (see below) is the name that will appear on your graduation document. If this name is incorrect, you must contact Student Records to make any corrections immediately after you have finished your application. You must submit a Personal Data Change form to Enrolment Services and Student Records within the applicable name change deadline dates (see Significant Dates in the Undergraduate calendar).
For students who have previously applied to graduate: If you applied for graduation previously, you will see two links. Clicking on the ‘View my graduation status’ link will show you the status of your most recent application. Check the date and status carefully. If only your old application is displayed, you must apply again for the current graduation term.
