It is the responsibility of all BKin students to ensure that they have fulfilled all graduation requirements. Students with questions regarding their graduation status should consult the Undergraduate Advising Centre.

Graduation Check

BKin students may request a preliminary review of their program. Students who wish to have their program reviewed should first complete a program planning sheet and then request a Grad Check at the Undergraduate Advising Office prior to the commencement of the final term of study. Although the School of Kinesiology is not required by the University to evaluate graduation status prior to submission of the application to graduate, the Undergraduate Advising Centre will make every effort, pending available time and resources, to complete the reviews.

Enrolment Services will send an email to all registered 4th Year students in the month of January for potential May and November graduates. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that Enrolment Services has an updated, current address on file.

Students wishing to graduate in May must submit their completed application forms prior to the end of February; students wishing to graduate in November must submit their completed application forms prior to September 15th. You can apply online at, log on to student services, at the bottom of the list on the left hand side there is a tab that says “graduation”, click on it, and follow the step-by-step instructions. Students who have not received notification of their graduation status two weeks prior to graduation should contact the Undergraduate Advising Office at 604-822-4512. Students whose graduation has been denied by the School must complete all outstanding requirements and re-apply with the Registrar for future graduation ceremonies.
