Graduation & Commencement Information for Students
Graduating TRU Williams Lake students do not have to RSVP or register to participate in the annual commencement ceremony. During the winter semester, the Commencement Committee will come around to classes with an invitation to commencement as well as the Commencement Procedures document and Valedictorian Nomination Form.
If you are graduating, you will not receive your official credential (certificate, diploma or degree) at the TRU Williams Lake commencement ceremony. To receive your credential, you must apply to graduate and receive your credential in the mail at a later date,
Apply to Graduate to Receive Your Credential
All TRU students must apply to graduate in order to receive their credentials. This is different from attending the TRU Williams Lake commencement ceremony. You can apply at any time to officially graduate from TRU and receive your credentials through myTRU.
Graduation from your program depends on a number of items
- All coursework is completed by the end of your term
- All fees owing (finance, library, etc.) are paid in full
- All term marks are input into the student record system
- Your program chairperson or program coordinator has approved your program completion
