If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist.

Graduation Commencement celebrates the accomplishments of students who have successfully completed all the requirements necessary for their degrees.

“Walking” is the term used to indicate student participation in commencement exercises. Walking in Casa Loma College’s Commencement exercises, however, does not necessarily indicate degree completion or a guarantee thereof. Only when all requirements are completed will a student’s degree be awarded.

Eligibility to Walk
Students who have completed all degree requirements are eligible to walk in the college commencement ceremonies. In addition, students who are within nine (9) credits of completing all degree requirements and have a plan to complete all remaining requirements and/or  who have completed at least 60 percent of the clinical component of their program may, with the approval of their program director, walk in the college commencement ceremonies.

Diplomas
Students will receive a diploma upon completion of all hours and requirements and clearance from applicable departments as indicated on Diploma Release Form. Diplomas are issued as students complete their program, generally during the program exit interview.
