Bow Valley College Graduation Information

Your program is almost done... Now what?

Graduation at Bow Valley College involves two separate processes:

1) Application to Graduate (required for all career program learners - due April 19, 2017)

The Application to Graduate is required for you to officially complete your program and 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

If you have questions about your eligibility to graduate, please contact the Advising Services for your School or program.  

Applications to graduate will be accepted after April 19th, but will not be processed until after the initial graduations are completed.

Submit your Application to Graduate as soon as possible in your last term of study.

You do not need to wait for final grades to submit your Application to Graduate.

For further information on the Application to Graduate process, please send an email to records@bowvalleycollege.ca.

2) Ceremony Registration (Opens February 27, deadline is April 19, 2017)

If you're planning on attending a graduation ceremony, registration is required. Attending the graduation ceremony is not mandatory.

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

STEP 2: Under the 'Student Information' tab, click on 'Graduation'

STEP 3: Select your ceremony date (see below), program and gown size from the drop-down menus (gown sizes listed on the MyBVC graduation page)
