Certification/Graduating

If you are studying part-time or if you are studying full-time but have taken a part-time course in your last semester, you need to apply to graduate.

Many of our courses can lead to a College Approved Certificate or an Ontario College credential. Others may lead to certification or accreditation by external professional or licensing bodies. Requirements are clearly outlined in program information monographs.

To receive a College Approved Certificate or an Ontario College credential from Algonquin, at least 25 per cent of the course hours in your program of study must be completed through the College. Upon completion of the final course in the program, part-time students must complete the Certificate/Diploma Application form and return the form by mail, by fax, in person or through the Academic Planner available on ACSIS to:

Algonquin College
Registrar's Office
Room C150
1385 Woodroffe Avenue
Ottawa, ON K2G 1V8
Fax: 613-727-7767

Provide your name (as you wish to have it appear on your Certificate/Diploma), student ID number, home address and telephone number. A $40 fee applies and payment must be sent with the request. Payment can be made by cheque, money order. Credit card (VISA, MasterCard or American Express). If paying by credit card, provide the credit card number, name of the cardholder and the expiry date.  Cheques, money orders and certified cheques must be made payable to Algonquin College and must bear the current date. Post-dated cheques will not be accepted.

Only part-time students must submit a request for certification. Requests for certification are to be submitted prior to May 19, 2017 in order for potential graduates to be invited to the Spring 2017 Convocation ceremonies. Requests from potential graduates received after this date will be invited to attend the Fall 2017 convocation.

CCOL Academic Planner

The Academic Planner provides registered part-time students in the Centre for Continuing and Online Learning (CCOL) the ability to declare into a program of study. The Academic Planner outlines successfully completed courses to date, as well as courses that need to be completed in order to meet graduation requirements. It is therefore, essential that all part-time students in CCOL declare to their program of study, allowing administrators to plan course offerings. The tool is available on ACSIS, located under 'Continuing Education' on the left-hand toolbar.
