Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Degree audit

Prior to convocation, the Office of the Registrar will assess whether you have successfully completed the academic requirements for your degree. Students must complete the application to graduate to initiate the degree audit process. 

Once your final requirements have been met, the Registrar will recommend to Academic Council that you be awarded a degree. With the approval of Academic Council, and provided you are free of financial obligations to the university, you will be invited to participate in the convocation ceremony.

If you complete the academic requirements for your degree too late to participate in the convocation ceremony, your name will be submitted at the next meeting of Academic Council and you will be eligible to receive your degree at the next convocation ceremony.
