Deadline approaching for no-fee applications to graduate

The no-fee deadline to apply to graduate is quickly approaching. Potential graduates who have completed their degree requirements at the end of the Fall 2022 or Winter 2023 term can apply to graduate by March 17 without facing any fees.

Graduands who apply between March 18 and April 28 will have to pay an $80 non-refundable late fee. No application will be accepted after April 28.

Note: students must apply to graduate to be assessed to receive their degree, regardless of whether they plan to attend Convocation. Applications are not fully evaluated until after the graduation application closes and graduands are asked not to wait until their advisement report is 100 per cent.

Graduands who apply to graduate will receive an email in March from the University of Windsor’s convocation partner Marching Order. This email will allow students to register for their ceremony, record their name and the phonetic pronunciation, and claim a maximum of three guest tickets.

Graduands do not require a ticket. Guests without a ticket can watch the ceremony in the overflow viewing area in the adjoining gym.

International students who would like to invite their family and require an invitation letter must wait until their graduation eligibility status is “conditionally eligible” before submitting the request. Refer to for further information.

In addition, international students who require a visa graduation letter for their post graduate work permit applications must wait until their graduation eligibility status is “approved” before submitting the request. Refer to for further details.

Note: Graduands in combined programs attend the session of their primary major.
