Graduating Students

Requesting Graduation

Students who wish to graduate submit their request using the Student Web Service (SWS). Information on when and how to request graduation is contained in the Fall-Winter Registration Instructions and Timetable (for June graduation) or in the Summer Registration Instructions (for November graduation). Check on the SWS that you are requesting the correct degree, eg Honours BSC or Honours BA. If you want to make a change to the degree that appears on the SWS, please see the Registrar’s Office.

NB.  It is essential that your contact information on the SWS is complete and up to date.  This includes a valid UTmail+ email address. Most information concerning your request to graduate will be sent only via email, and only to UTmail+ addresses.

In some cases, the SWS may not permit you to make a graduation request. If so, you may use the “Woodsworth College Degree Request” form. Please complete the form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office by the deadline shown on the form.

If you miss the deadline to request graduation on the SWS, it may be possible to submit a late request by filling out a form at the Registrar’s Office. After a certain point in the graduation assessment process, however, it will be too late to make additions to the graduation program, so submit your request as early as possible.

Check that your degree requirements will be met

It is each student’s responsibility to ensure that all degree and program requirements have been met. Review degree requirements in the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar.

To ensure that you will fulfill all of your degree and program requirements, use “Degree Explorer” which can be accessed through the SWS log-in page. 

If any of your degree requirements appear as ‘Incomplete’ on Degree Explorer and you believe the assessment is inaccurate, consult an academic advisor at Woodsworth.   If your program requirements are listed as incomplete check with the department concerned. Both these steps should be taken prior to course enrolment in your graduating year, in case any adjustments need to be made to your course selections.
