Clearance to graduate

You will need to have clearance to graduate two weeks prior to the meeting date.

If you are waiting for your thesis or your practical report to be marked and have missed the clearance date to graduate our office will defer your application to the next available meeting.

If you have not met the requirements to graduate, in time for the academic board meeting in which you application has been entered, your application will be deferred to the next available academic board meeting or withdrawn depending on your circumstances.

An email will be sent to you from our office if you have been deferred or withdrawn from a meeting.
