  • Request to have your Honours Upgrade diploma couriered to you. You must return your original Bachelors diploma along with the Fillable Diploma Delivery Request Form and payment.

The Office of Convocation will hold your Honours Upgrade diploma for one year following the date of conferral.

Lost your original Bachelors diploma?

In the case of a lost or destroyed diploma, you will have to complete a Statutory Declaration Form that you must have signed and sealed by a Notary Public*, legally swearing that the original diploma has been lost.

(*A Notary Public is a public official who can authenticate documents with a notarial seal. Many lawyers are also Notaries. A Notary Public is not equivalent to a Guarantor. Please contact a local law office in your area.)
