REF NO.: 11

SUBJECT: Spring application to graduate deadline looming for Memorial students

DATE: Jan. 13

This public service announcement replaces previously issued public service announcement No. 10.

Memorial University is alerting its students who are, or will be, eligible to graduate this spring to the Jan. 15, 2020, graduation application deadline.

Students who completed their program requirements before or in December 2019 will graduate and be awarded their credential during the February 2020 in absentia convocation. There is no ceremony in February; however, all applicants will be invited to attend the spring convocation ceremony.

Students who complete their requirements in April 2020 will also be eligible to graduate at the spring convocation ceremony. To apply to graduate, log on to Memorial’s Self Service.

The schedule of ceremonies and degrees for Memorial’s spring convocation in Corner Brook on May 14, 2020, and in St. John’s from May 26-29, 2020, will be posted online by mid-February.

Students must then indicate if they will be attending their ceremony by returning in early March 2020 to Memorial’s Self Service to register for convocation.

For more information about applying to graduate, please visit online. Further information about convocation is available here.
