Parchments or printed credentials are awarded at convocation. You will also receive a digital credential at that time.
When you apply to graduate, more information will be sent to you on how you will receive your parchment.
If you choose not to attend Convocation, the Office of the Registrar will mail it to the address you provided on your application to graduate.
Parchments are given to students graduating from credentialed certificates, diplomas or degree programs. Non-credit certificates of achievement or certificates of completion will be issued through the Centre for Continuing Education and Professional Studies.
Lost, damaged or stolen parchments
You can request a replacement if your parchment is damaged, lost or destroyed.
Complete the credential request form and we will contact you to pay the required fee if one is applicable.
We use MyCreds™️ — Canada’s digital document wallet — to issue credentials and other official documents in a secure digital format. MyCreds™️ is the official online document-sharing system of the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC).
Your digital credential will be available on MyCreds™️. You’ll receive an email when it’s ready — if we don’t have your personal email address, check your SAIT student email. If you’re unsure what email address we have on your student profile, visit our online support.
Documents issued through MyCreds™️ are certified, official, and can be securely shared with other educational institutions, employers, and third parties. MyCreds™️ allows you to access your documents and share them as often as you need.
What are the benefits of a digital credential?
- Your digital credential is secure and cannot be altered or forged.
- You’ll have access to your digital credential anytime from anywhere.
- You can share your credential with future employers or other post-secondary institutions instead of requesting a paper copy from the Office of the Registrar.
- Potential employers and other third parties can quickly verify your credential.
