  • Graduating Student Awards are typically disbursed no later than the end of May.
  • Graduating Student Award recipients will have their awards noted on their University transcripts.

  • Graduating Student Award recipients who do not have their degree conferred as expected will forfeit their award.
  • Students who forfeit their awards will have their award cancelled and their transcript notation removed.  Students must return any non-monetary award to the Office of the Registrar and any award funding to their McMaster Student Account.
  • The University may choose not to grant a Graduating Student Award in the absence of a suitable candidate; may choose to limit the number of recipients where funding is limited; may choose to limit the number of recipients selected where too few suitable candidates exist; and/or may choose to generate applicant pools where complete applications have not been received.
  • The University may remove specific Graduating Student Awards from the University Calendar, may revise the terms and stated value and/or suspend the granting of Graduating Student Awards (e.g. donor funds).

Only 3% of all applicants are accepted to work with us and even these 3% have a training program and a two-month trial period ahead. We value our reputation and only hire true experts with years of experience in academic writing behind their backs. Nonetheless, being a professional writers service has its challenges. For example, as our employer expectations are high, not all writers can handle the challenge of creating zero-plagiarism essay writing content in a short time frame, so as leading writing services we must keep everything in control.
