June 2020 convocation ceremonies postponed
UFV is following the direction of the BC Provincial Health Officer and the requirements of the BC and federal governments during the COVID-19 pandemic in maintaining social distance, keeping our community healthy, and flattening the curve.
Convocation ceremonies are separate from your achievement of graduating. If you have earned your credential and completed the graduation requirements below then you will have graduated and will receive your credential in the mail — even if we don’t celebrate together on stage until a future date.
We will share new convocation plans, once finalized, on the UFV convocation website and by email to all our students.

Graduation documents (parchments)
UFV awards a parchment — an official certificate confirming your degree, associate degree, diploma, or certificate — to every graduate. You can request to have your parchment mailed (fee may apply), or presented to you at the convocation ceremony.
After February 1, due to time constraints, parchments may not be mailed, but instead are prepared for the convocation ceremony.
If you have not received your parchment, please contact a records and graduation officer at email@example.com.
Note: UFV only prints majors on degree parchments.
Request for parchment reprints
If the parchment you were issued upon graduating has been lost, destroyed, stolen, or 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 reprint, please review the requirements, and submit a completed Parchment Replacement Request (pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also submit your request to the address or fax number noted on the form, or in person at any Office of the Registrar location.
Note: Replacement parchments take approximately six weeks to process. If you require proof of graduation immediately, you can request a transcript (pdf) or have the requester contact Auradata for graduation verification.
Transcripts and statement of student records
All official transcripts carry the signature of the registrar as well as the seal of the school, and are enclosed in a sealed envelope bearing an official signature.
Official transcripts are NOT issued automatically upon graduation.
Current and former students must order a(n) official transcript(s) from the Office of the Registrar.

Statement of student record
Upon Senate awarding a credential, student academic records are updated to show graduation status.
Students can view their unofficial statement of student record on myUFV.
