The Office of the Registrar will contact you by email when your parchment is ready for pick up. If you are completing your program requirements in the winter semester we will prepare your parchment for pick up at Convocation.

If the parchment you were issued upon graduating has been lost/stolen, damaged, or if you had a legal name change, you may apply to have your parchment reprinted.

You may request only one copy of each credential. To apply for a replacement please review the requirements and submit a completed Parchment Replacement Request (pdf) to graduation@ufv.ca.

Note: Replacement parchments take approximately eight weeks to process. If you require proof of graduation immediately, you may request a transcript (pdf) or have the requestor contact Auradata for graduation verification.
