Students who are ready to graduate this year should keep in mind the following advice that will help the process go as smoothly as possible:
1. Remember to apply to graduate. For more information about application procedures, visit the graduation checklist located on the Convocation website.
2. If you have already applied, you can check your graduation status online by going to the My Online Services website and logging on through Passport York, then click on the "Preparing for Convocation" link.
3. While logged on, remember to check your official name to make sure that it is correct by clicking on the "Verify my official name" link. That is the name which will be printed on your diploma. This is also the best time to ensure that your contact information is up to date. The e-mail address on file will be used to send your convocation invitation.
4. Finally, make sure that you have no outstanding debts to the University, including library and parking fines. Your diploma will be held back if your debts remain unpaid.
