Applying to Graduate

The Application to Graduate is submitted using Memorial Self-Service.

Related application deadlines are listed in the University Diary. The application to graduate and receive a degree during Spring Convocation normally opens in late October with a deadline of Jan. 15. The application to graduate and receive a degree during Fall Convocation normally opens in early June with a deadline of July 15.

There will no longer be an annual Corner Brook Convocation in the fall.

  • Grenfell students who finish their program requirements by August 2019 should apply to graduate;
  • Students will automatically be assigned to the fall Convocation in St. John’s; however, students wishing to attend the Grenfell Convocation ceremony in May 2020 instead, must email by October 1, 2019;
  • All eligible candidates will be awarded their degree and issued their graduation parchment either during the Fall 2019 Convocation ceremonies in St. John’s or by mail at the permanent address as recorded in Memorial Self-Service, about one week after fall Convocation.
  • While all degrees and graduation parchments will be issued in the fall, students can opt to participate ceremonially in Corner Brook in May 2020.

Graduate students will find advice for graduation procedures on the School of Graduate Studies website.
