Check your account balance

Check your account balance on ACORN. You’ll need to pay your fees in full by early April to ensure that your diploma will be available for the June convocation ceremony, and by early September for the Fall convocation.

If you have an outstanding balance, you will be permitted to graduate; however, you will not receive your University of Toronto diploma.

If you need a confirmation of your eligibility to graduate prior to the convocation ceremony, you can request one from the Faculty of Arts & Science. Please note that you will need to pay off any remaining balance in your account before you can request such a letter.

Upgrading a Previously Conferred Degree

  • If you graduated with a three-year equivalent degree and wish to upgrade it to a four-year or Honours degree, you must submit a request to the Registrar's Office to upgrade your degree. 
  • If you would like to discuss options to upgrade a previously conferred degree or take undergraduate courses after graduation, please meet with an academic advisor.

Please note that students upgrading a degree that has previously been conferred are not eligible to attend the convocation ceremony.
