Graduation Checklist

Use the Graduation Checklist to help you complete your journey and enjoy the ceremony and your day to the fullest. Share your graduation stories and view your classmates’ pictures, messages and cheers at #HumberConvo.

1. Confirm your Attendance

Congratulations on reaching this point in your academic journey!

Graduation starts with a formal application to attend. Every graduate will need to complete the application form on MyHumber regardless of whether they plan to participate in the scheduled ceremony events. The application to attend Spring Convocation typically opens mid-April and for Fall Convocation, the application typically opens late-September. 

For graduates who need to leave the ceremony early or were not able to attend, their credential will be mailed within 4 weeks after the ceremony. Please view our Frequently Asked Questions and Contact Us page for more information.

2. Update your Personal Information

Review your official name, email and mailing address on MyHumber. Update your email and mailing address to receive important communication. For changes to your official name, please contact the Registrar's Office.

3. Review your Student Account Balance

Review your Account Detail and clear outstanding debts. Your credential will be withheld if you have outstanding fees.
