Post Registration BSN Program
- If you have completed the requirements of the Post Registration BSN Program, you must complete an Application to Graduate form to be awarded your degree - regardless of whether or not you plan to attend the convocation ceremony. This form is available on-line www.usask.ca (look under "current students" and then under "common forms".) Forms must be completed by March 31 for Spring Convocation and August 31 for Fall Convocation.
- In order to be awarded your BSN degree, official transcripts from other institutions where you may be taking courses (e.g. Athabasca, University of Regina), must be at the College of Nursing by May 1 for Spring Convocation and October 1 for Fall Convocation.
- Step 3:
Information about the convocation ceremony can be found at the following link: http://students.usask.ca/academic/convocation/
While it is up to you to attend the ceremony or not, we hope you will do so. It is an opportunity for all of your hard work to be recognized.
NOTE: Students with out-standing accounts will be granted their degree and may attend convocation but will not receive the actual parchment or any other official documentation of the degree (including transcripts) until the over-due account has been cleared.
As you may know, pictures of nursing graduates hang in the College of Nursing. Each graduating class of Post Registration BSN students has its own composite picture board made up of individual pictures of each graduate. If you would like your picture included and are finishing the program this year in either May or October, please contact McMaster's in Saskatoon (106B 1640 Idlywyld Drive N, Saskatoon SK S7L 1B1 or call 665-6802). You can have your picture taken anytime before October. When you book your appointment, please mention that the picture is to be included on the Post Registration BSN Program Composite Board. A small portion of the fee goes toward the making of the composite board. If you do not have your picture taken, only your name will be included on the composite board.
