UCalgary is hosting a virtual convocation ceremony following continued COVID-19 restrictions and provincial guidelines. We look forward to hosting you virtually for the Spring 2021 ceremony. Please continue to monitor our website and your UCalgary email address for ceremony information.

The virtual ceremony is replacing the in-person ceremonies. We aim to make this a memorable and special occasion for our graduates.

Graduation photos can be booked through Artona photography through our website for anyone who is able to come to campus. If you are out of town or province, you may book your photography sessions with whomever you choose.

You may rent or purchase your regalia through Gaspard. Please see their “build-a-grad” site for details.

  • You can access the virtual ceremony by clicking on your home faculty link. The links to your faculty specific ceremony will be posted here.
  • You may choose to watch both ceremonies if you are a graduate in more than one faculty.

Yes, the ceremony will remain posted on our main page until August 31, 2021 and then will be moved to our archives section of the website where you may access the ceremony beyond that day.

You are not required to register for the virtual event. All graduates will be recognized regardless.

Due to the COVID-19 government restrictions currently in place, we are unable to offer a parchment pick-up at this time. Be sure your mailing address is up to date in your Student Centre so we can mail you your degree and grad pack.
