What's the difference between graduation and convocation?

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

Continuing Education students

Students who started and completed a non-credit program (certificate of achievement, certificate of completion) prior to July 2020 must submit a Credential Request form directly to the Office of the Registrar. For students in a non-credit program started and completed after July 2020, contact the Centre for Continuing Education and Professional Studies.
