Green banner with gold icons of fireworks, graduation caps, and gowns and rolled up degrees on it that reads: Spring 2020 Convocation.


In light of the uncertainty around COVID-19 and our inability to gather together on campus, the University of Alberta has made the difficult decision to change this year's ceremonies. We will not be holding in-person ceremonies this June and instead will move to a virtual convocation to celebrate all that our graduates have achieved. This will be a different experience than we were anticipating and a different approach than we have seen in our 112-year history. However, we look forward to creating a memorable online moment for our Class of 2020 and our university community.

The virtual Spring 2020 Convocation is taking place on June 12, 2020 at 10 a.m. MDT.
