Apply for Graduation
Step 1: Official Graduation Check
See your undergraduate advisor prior to your graduation for a final graduation check to ensure you have met all of the program requirements.
Step 2: Apply Online
Apply for graduation during the final term you are enrolled at SFU:
- Log into your student account at go.sfu.ca.
- From the menu at top left, expand Self Service
- Under Self Service, select Graduation/Convocation
- Select Apply for Graduation
- Read the instructions, scroll down, and click the Continue button to fill out the online application form.
Step 3: Pay Your Fees
Make sure you pay in time—your application will be canceled if your payment is not processed by the deadline. Please allow 5 working days before the applicable deadline for your payment to be processed.
Note: if your application is canceled due to non-payment of the graduation application fee, you will need to reapply through the Student Information System and pay your graduation application fee before the final deadline.
You have already paid any graduating fees and no further payment is required. You can check the status of your application on goSFU.
Upcoming Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology Convocation
All International Students will need a Credential Completion Letter (CCL) in order to apply for Post-Graduation Work Permit.
For the school to issue a CCL, the following two conditions need to be met:
- You must have applied and paid for your graduation
- Your final grades must all be in and you meet the all requirements for graduation
As soon as you have your final grades, please check your graduation application status on goSFU. If your status is ‘Approved’, you can run the Credential Completion Letter by yourself on goSFU.
If your Status is ‘In Review’, and you have successfully completed your final courses, please contact us at email@example.com to request for an earlier issuance of the CCL for you. Please do not contact us for the CCL if you still have grades pending.
If you have successfully completed all requirements for graduation, we will issue you your CCL within 2-3 business days.
