Graduation Eligibility

Once you have completed all program requirements and are eligible for a certificate or diploma you must complete an Application for Graduation form and pay the fee to Strategic Enrolment Services (SES). Graduation forms are available in the SES office.

Minimum Performance for Graduation

You will only be eligible to graduate if you have completed all program requirements and maintained an overall good standing in your program (minimum GPA of 2.0). To confirm graduation eligibility, Durham College completes an audit of all courses you have taken in a program. Each course must be successfully completed within the maximum time frame for the credential, and a minimum GPA must be maintained.  The audit is based upon the program of study from the year you started your program, and it may be different from the one currently displayed on our website.

Post-Secondary Credential

Please note if you have completed an Ontario post-secondary credential you are required to follow graduation deadlines for the day school programs.  There are three graduation audit periods per academic year (January, May/June, and October) and if you have met the application deadline and are successful you will receive your credential following the audit process.

Durham College Certificate or Recognition of Achievement

If you completed a Durham College Certificate or Recognition of Achievement you can apply to graduate upon completion of your final course. Your records will be audited at that time.
