You can choose to graduate:

  • In person - have your scroll presented to you in person at a graduation ceremony.

Or

  • In absentia - graduate through an Academic Board Meeting / Council Meeting without attending. Your scroll will be sent to you. Please note that if you graduate by this method you will not be able to attend a ceremony for the qualification at a later date.
