Graduation & Convocation

Graduation and Convocation are a great time of celebration for the University, graduates, their families and friends. The University of Calgary community recognizes the hard work, perseverance and dedication of students and gathers each year in May, June and November to award them their degree(s).

We invite you to take the time and celebrate with us the ending of a program of study and the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of our graduates.
