Once you complete your program requirements it’s time to graduate.
The Office of the Registrar evaluates your eligibility to graduate according to an approved program by the Ministry of Advanced Education in Alberta.
All students in a credit program (degree, applied degree, diploma or certificate) must apply to graduate — whether or not you choose to attend your convocation ceremony.
All students in a non-credit program (certificate of achievement, certificate of completion) must request a non-credit credential.
What's the difference between graduation and convocation?
- Graduation is your achievement, you've completed your program and you’re ready for that next step.
- Convocation is the celebration, that moment you walk across the stage to receive your parchment and we recognize your success.
Congratulations — you did it! Commemorate and celebrate your academic achievements at convocation.
Convocation is a formal ceremony where SAIT administration, faculty, staff, family and friends come together to honour and celebrate your accomplishments as you cross the stage to receive your credential.
We host two convocations each year — fall and spring. The ceremonies are held at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium next to our main campus.
