Graduating Students - June 2021 Graduation

To our graduating students,

As the end of the Fall/Winter 2020-21 term approaches, we wanted to update you on what you can expect with virtual graduation this upcoming June 23rd, 2021.

Requesting Convocation

There is no need to indicate your intention to graduate for June 2021. You have been automatically put forward for convocation being held virtually on June 23rd, 2021. Once all final grades have been assessed at the end of this academic term, your eligibility will be automatically reviewed and confirmed providing all required degree requirements have been successfully completed.

If you are completing your degree requirements this Winter 2021 session and require confirmation of degree requirement completion prior to the June 23rd convocation, you can submit a request form through the School of Graduate Studies. We recommend waiting until mid-May to request to allow final grades to be reviewed and confirmed by the graduate department.

If you believe you will need to defer your graduation, please make sure you contact us at

Preparing for Convocation

The Office of Convocation will be streaming the official June 23, 2021 convocation ceremony. Details on Daniels celebrations will be coming to you in the next few weeks. Please review the graduation checklist information on their website concerning your personal information and diploma release schedules.

Your name as it appears on your ACORN account will be the name published on your diploma. The deadline to make any changes is April 22nd, 2021. Please follow the instructions listed on the website.

Please ensure that your permanent address is updated on ACORN by June 1st, 2021, as this will be the address your diploma will be mailed out to.

Graduating Awards

Students graduating from the Daniels Faculty may be nominated for a graduating award, a list of which can be found on our Graduate Awards webpage.

The majority of our graduating awards do not require an application, though for those that do, our awards office will reach out directly by email with application instructions. Our awards committee will be adjudicating in May and recipients of graduating awards will be notified in late June.

If you have any concerns, please reach out to our office at

Master of Architecture CACB Registration

The Program's Office will be contacting you directly by email towards the end of April/beginning of May with information on how to automatically register with CACB.

MARC & MLA Graduation Rings

We are now taking orders for eligible Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture graduate students interested in a graduation ring.

Ring sizing can be done independently in one of two ways:

  1. Follow the attached instructions for an at-home measurement (printer required).
  2. Where possible, visit your local jeweler and inquire about having your little (pinky) finger measured.

The sizes are 0.5 -15.0 with 0.5 being the smallest size. If you are using the attached measurement instructions provided by our manufacturer, please note that ring sizes are separated by 0.125cm circumference and smaller sizes can be extrapolated in this manner. The cost of the graduation ring is $115.

Ordering a ring is a 3 step process:

  1. Size your little (pinky) finger.
  2. Submit an order with payment information online:
  3. Once orders have been fulfilled and delivered to our building, our office will contact you about pick-up/delivery instructions.

The deadline to order a graduation ring is May 7th. Due to manufacturing delays reported by our supplier, we expect a tentative 12-week lead time from the time we place the order. Questions regarding ring orders can be sent to
