You need to complete the online Graduand RSVP form (will open March 18th via your MyUNBC portal) and pay any outstanding fees in order to be able to receive your parchment. For more information go to: unbc.ca/convocation/checklist
For those graduates that specify on the online Graduand RSVP that they will NOT be attending a Convocation/Regional Graduate Celebration Ceremony, the Office of the Registrar can courier their parchment to them. Payment of the appropriate parchment courier fee, and all previous outstanding fees must be paid in advance. The courier will be sent to the address indicated in the online Graduand RSVP. Delivery should be expected in June.
Students whose parchment courier fees are paid by the Tuesday before Convocation will have their parchments couriered in June. Delivery times vary depending on the mailing address, so please give at least two weeks for arrival.

Parchment Pick Up
Those who selected "Pick up" on the online Graduand RSVP may have the opportunity to do so, but pick up will be dependent on the Provincial Health guidelines at the time. Pick up will be via the Office of the Registrar and will start the second week of June.
Complete a Parchment Pickup Letter of Authorization.pdf and submit it to the Office of the Registrar. IF you need someone else to pick-up your parchment, please ensure they know to bring their ID as it will be required by your designate. Please ensure you double-check that you have filled out the Parchment Pickup Letter of Authorization correctly as it will not be processed unless you follow the instructions.
Please note we will not be able to forward parchments to any students who have outstanding fees. You are responsible to confirm that all outstanding fees are paid by contacting the Cashier’s Office at email@example.com or 250-960-5631.
UNBC issues only ONE parchment to each graduate. Upon request, the Office of the Registrar will certify a “True Copy” of a parchment for submission to an employer or a foreign government.
If you require a certified copy of your parchment, please contact the Office of the Registrar. You must fill out the Certified True Copy form and submit along with corresponding fee.
