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.

What's the difference?

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.

Graduation for apprentices

In your final period of technical training, and if you finished at least one additional period at SAIT, you can apply to receive a certificate of accomplishment.

Applying for the SAIT parchment will recognize your time at SAIT and allow you to attend the convocation ceremony.

Your journeyman certificate will be issued by Apprenticeship and Industry Training
