Letter Requests for Graduate Students

Graduate students can request third party letters from the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for the following:

  • Verification of enrolment for current or past terms
  • Confirm degree requirements are completed and degree has been confirmed (proof of graduation)
  • Confirm degree requirements are met, but the degree has not been conferred at convocation

Requests for official letters of program completion will not be accepted until August 15. Letter requests will be completed as they are received and will take 10 – 15 business days to fulfill. Letters will be reviewed and processed in the order they are received.

All letters are produced using the student’s current academic record. Letters are reflective of registration and academic status at the time of the request.
