Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent cancellation of in-person November 2021 ceremonies, all diplomas will be couriered to graduates. To ensure you receive your parchment, it is important that your address is current and complete.
Please ensure your address is accurate, complete and follows these guidelines:
- Address: does not include a P.O. Box; includes a Buzzer code for your building (if required); includes a telephone number local to the delivery address
- An adult must sign for the delivery (or to follow the protocol at the time of delivery set by the courier company)
- Deliveries are made during regular business hours. Please check that the address selected meets this requirement
To ensure you include all the necessary information for a courier to deliver your diploma, please refer to our Address Completion Guide.
Please note that if your address is missing any of the required information, your diploma will not ship in November. The next shipment will not occur until mid December.
