Your credential

Credentials are your degree, diploma or certificate. Your credential is not available until the graduation ceremony.

Your name

The name that appears on your credential is the name on our computer system and should be your legal name. If your name on the system is incorrect or your name has changed, the following documentation is required in the Office of the Registrar:

  1. a copy of your marriage certificate or divorce decree (if change is a result of change in marital status) plus one additional piece of current government-issued identification with your new name on it OR
  2. a copy of one (1) piece of current government photo identification (e.g. driver's licence, health card)

In order to ensure your proper name is printed on your certificate/diploma, please submit this documentation before the end of your graduating term.
