GRADUATION

International students should be aware of two important dates regarding graduation:

  • Graduation document availability
  • Convocation ceremony
The first date is approximately five weeks after the end of each semester. Graduation documents (Confirmation of Graduation letter and final transcript) become available at this time (typically, the beginning of February, May, and October). These graduation documents are required for post-graduation work permit application.

The second date is Convocation, a ceremony where graduates celebrate their academic accomplishments with their classmates, professors, as well as friends and family members. This event occurs in June and November each year.

GRADUATION DATE AND TIMES

The academic calendar publishes convocation dates far in advance: http://www.humber.ca/admissions/academic-calendar

In the months before the ceremony, visit http://www.humber.ca/convocation for the most up-to-date information.

INVITING FAMILY AND GUESTS

All graduates are allowed to bring up to three guests to convocation.

If your family members need a temporary resident visa to come to Canada, then you can provide a formal invitation to support their visa application.

You will need to provide them with a letter of invitation. The letter of invitation is written by you, not Humber. For more information on what to include in the letter go to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/letter.asp.

You can use the links above to provide convocation dates to include in the invitation letter.

As part of the documentation for your situation, you should include a Confirmation of Enrollment letter. You can order this through your MyHumber account. The Confirmation of Enrollment letter will indicate your expected completion date.

If your family is unable to attend, then your family can stream your convocation live at humber.ca/watch-convocation/.
