June 2020 convocation postponed

To help limit the spread of COVID-19, the June 2020 convocation ceremonies have been postponed until November 2020.

The new dates will be made available by early May.


I’ve already applied to graduate. With the ceremony postponed, will I still graduate?

Yes, once your faculty clears you for graduation, you will still receive your degree/parchment in June. 

How will I receive my degree/parchment?

We will contact all students who have been cleared to graduate to let them know the options (mail, pick up or both). We will notify students of the process in May. We recommend that you double check your mailing address in your Student Centre to ensure it’s up to date.

I already submitted my attendance notification and paid for my gown rental. Will I get a refund?

Yes. However, if you plan to attend the ceremony when it’s held in the fall, we can move your gown rental to the fall ceremony. The convocation office will send out details to students who have already paid.

What dates in November are the ceremonies being moved to?

We are working to finalize these dates and will post information in early May on the convocation website.

Will additional graduation photography dates be added?

Yes. We will add more appointments in the future. At this time, we do not know the exact date; however, we are working Artona to make these arrangements. We will email information to students and post details on the convocation website as soon as the dates are confirmed.
