In order to ensure you will be eligible to graduate email the Program Coordinator as early as possible with your final selection of courses for the upcoming academic session. Don't wait until it is too late to make changes to your course selection. It is your responsibility to verify that you have fulfilled all program requirements. It is not possible to take additional courses in the CHRM program once you have graduated from the program.
Graduation ceremonies (or Convocations) happen twice a year – in June and in November. Ceremony dates are posted on the Office of Convocation website.
Graduation must be requested by logging onto ACORN during the request window noted here:
November 2016: June 28, 2016 - August 8, 2016
June 2017: September 12, 2016 - December 6, 2016
How to request graduation on ACORN: Select “Confirm graduation” from the ACORN main menu. If you are unable to add your request on ACORN you may email your request - by the deadline - to the Program Office. Make sure to include your student number with your request. There is no guarantee that late requests can be accommodated.
It is ultimately the students’ responsibility to check that all program requirements will be met by the end of the Fall/Winter /Summer session if they wish to graduate in June or November.
If you want to make any change to your name as it appears on ACORN, bring official documentation (eg. birth certificate or Canadian passport) to the Registrar’s Office room 220 (Woodsworth College) and fill out a Name Change form as soon as possible. Late requests cannot be accommodated.
Convocation Dates,Times & Ceremony Information
For any questions relating to the ceremonial aspect of graduation (tickets, special seating for guests, etc.) please see the Office of Convocation website.
Information about the ceremony will be sent via email [to utor email accounts only] by the Office of Convocation in October. You will be directed to their website to order tickets for your guests and to rent your gown and hood for the ceremony. There are deadlines, so make a note of them to ensure that you get your tickets!
Your Diploma will be given to you at the convocation ceremony. If you can’t attend the ceremony, you can obtain your diploma either by picking it up in person or paying for it to be mailed to you. Details are on the Convocations website.
CHRM Program Requirements
If you requested graduation on ACORN, your academic record will be checked by the Program Coordinator. A confirmation of your graduation eligibility will be emailed to your utor account shortly after the graduation request deadline.
Your contact information on ACORN must be accurate and up to date or you’ll miss essential notices about graduation from a number of University offices. Please take a moment now to look at your address, your phone number and your email address and ensure the information is accurate. Note that only UTOR email addresses are considered ‘official’ for correspondence with the university.
Can you take more courses after you have graduated?
It is not possible to take additional courses in the CHRM program once you have graduated from the program.
