November 2020 convocation

On November 26, 6 p.m. MST, join us online to celebrate our 2020 graduates.

The November convocation ceremony will be held virtually on November 26, 2020, 6 p.m. MST for all February, June and November 2020 graduates.

Additional details will be posted on this page as they become available.

Since the event is online, graduates, family members and friends do not need to be in Calgary to attend and there is no limit on how many can view the ceremony. You will also be able to view the ceremony at a later date on our convocation website.

2020 graduates can choose whether they would like their parchments mailed to them or if they would prefer to pick up on UCalgary’s main campus. Degrees will begin to be mailed out as of November 3, and on-campus pick-up will be scheduled the week of November 16. To indicate how you would like to receive your parchment:
