Digital Materials Fee

Since these materials are essential to your learning and overall experience, we charge a fee when a licensed digital material is included in the course to cover the costs. Please note: Digital materials fees are non-refundable.

Certification/Graduation

In order to be eligible to graduate, students must make a formal application at the beginning of the session in which they expect to complete graduation requirements, before the last date of the registration revision period.

This can be done on-line through Aurora. (Login, select “Enrolment and Academic Records”, select “Declarations”, and follow the instructions. If the date you wish to graduate does not appear, you will need to contact an advisor in your Faculty as soon as possible; as you may have missed the online application deadline).

The deadline date for declaring your intention is the end of the revision period in the term in which you expect to complete your courses.

For example:

  • For Spring graduation, declare by mid-January
  • For Fall graduation, declare by late July/early August
  • For February graduation, declare by mid-September
