Senate list of graduands

Before each convocation ceremony, the McMaster University Senate approves a list of all graduating students that will be conferred a certificate, diploma, or degree. The list is not made public and is only available to Senators via a secure, password-protected website.

Ceremony programs and printed materials

For the convocation ceremonies, the University produces a booklet containing the names, programs, awards and credentials (certificate, diploma, or degree) of graduates. A PDF version of this program will be posted online.
