Graduation Information

Graduation at Bow Valley College involves two separate processes:

1) Application to Graduate (required during your final term of study; mandatory for career program learners)

The Application to Graduate is required for you to receive your certificate or diploma. This process lets you notify the Office of the Registrar when you're close to completing your program and all its requirements (courses, practicums, preceptorships, etc.)

STEP 1: Log into your MyBVC account (mybvc.ca)

STEP 2: Under the 'Student Information' tab, click on 'Student Forms' to get the 'Application to Graduate' form (click here for the form)

STEP 3: Complete the form and send to records@bowvalleycollege.ca using your MyBVC email account

  • Don't know if you're eligible?  Contact the Advising Services for your School or program
  • Submit your Application to Graduate as soon as possible during your final term of study. Don't wait for final grades!

Send an email to records@bowvalleycollege.ca if you need help with your Application to Graduate form

2) Ceremony Registration (registration for the Winter 2018 ceremony will open this fall in MyBVC)

Want to attend your graduation ceremony? You need to register.
