Important: make sure to update your contact information online using ACORN/ROSI. The way your name appears in ACORN/ROSI, is the way it will appear on your degree.

Your name as it appears in Student Web Services (ACORN/ROSI) is the name that will appear on your diploma. To view your name on ACORN/ROSI, just visit the ACORN/ROSI web-site and select the “GRADUATION” option.

Once you have seen your name as it will appear on your diploma:

Is your name missing accents or you want to remove a period (.) after an initial? If so, please download and complete the Name on Diploma (June Form) or the Name on Diploma (November Form) and return the form to the address provided.

Please follow the instructions on the form. Please note that this form is only for accents.

The DEADLINE to return the form:

For the June 2023 Convocation: extended to April 19, 2023
For the November 2023 Convocation: extended to October 4, 2023

Due to publication deadlines, forms received after this deadline cannot be processed.

For any other changes to your name, please visit your College or Faculty Registrar’s Office to complete the necessary forms and provide proper documentation to support the desired change.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

One of the most significant moments of your convocation ceremony is having your name read aloud when you cross the stage. It is highly important that your name is pronounced accurately, and you are the best person to provide this guidance.

If you would like to send pronunciation information, a recording of your name, or simply connect directly with the Reader for your ceremony, please contact us and select 'Convocation Name Pronunciation' as the request type.

The earlier you contact us, the better prepared your reader can be to ensure you enjoy your moment on the stage.

Please note that this option will be available between September 18 - November 1 for the Fall 2023 convocation season.

If you graduated in 2022 and did not receive your diploma, you can arrange to have your diploma delivered for a fee or make an appointment to collect it in-person. Diplomas are held in our office for one year from your ceremony date.

For graduates prior to 2022, please review the information about Replacement Diplomas.
