2021 GRADUATES - Save-the-Date:

Graduates from the December 2020 exams to July 2021, save-the-date for your Virtual Convocation Ceremony: January 27, 2021. More info coming to your inbox, make sure your profile is up-to date.


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.

First, 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.

Next, the formalities begin! Your name is put forward for election at the next meeting of the Board of Governors in late October 2021. Students who wrote (and passed!) their final exam in July are eligible to start using the CIP designation from November 1, 2021. Students who complete their CIP courses in December 2021 will be invited to attend convocation as a graduate in 2022.
