Southwestern Convocation

Convocation is a time to come together to celebrate your academic achievements and the important milestones in your professional life. While the pandemic has temporarily changed how we gather, you can look forward to a special virtual celebration that honours the hard work you have put into earning your new credential.

When you successfully complete your final exam in the CIP program, you are automatically eligible to graduate, but a few steps need to happen before you can begin using your CIP designation. We need to ensure you meet the academic and employment requirements of the program, including at least one year of full-time employment in the industry. If we require any additional information from you, you will be notified by email.

Students who wrote (and passed!) their final exam in August 2021 will start using the CIP designation on December 1, 2021. Students who completed their CIP courses in December 2021 will be invited to attend convocation as a graduate next year (2023).
