Graduation, Parchments, and Verification

Undergraduate and graduate degree parchments are awarded at Convocation. Diploma and certificate parchments are issued immediately following each Convocation period. Graduates are normally issued only one copy of their parchment in their lifetime. The Memorial University transcript reflects each credential that has been awarded to a person along with the date of the award.
