Celebrating together... but apart.

Celebrate the
Graduating Class of 2020

We’d like to invite you, the University of Alberta community, to join in the first-ever virtual convocation as we celebrate with our 7,000 graduates on Friday, June 12.

U of A Convocation #UAlberta20

The countdown is on to convocation, and we look forward to celebrating with you. 

Date: Friday, June 12, 2020
Time: 10 a.m. MST
Place: ualberta.ca
Registration is not required. 

If you are unable to join us at 10 a.m., know that you can download and watch the ceremony when it concludes. Along with many of the speakers and messages you would expect to see at convocation, we are also creating opportunities for graduates and the broader University of Alberta community to interact online including: 

  • Message Boards
  • Searchable listing of Graduate Names
  • Instagram Filters/Facebook Frames
  • Graduating Student Features on Folio
  • Links to Faculty-Specific Celebrations

In the next few weeks we will update this page with additional information about how you can engage with us online that day, and through social media (#UAlberta20) leading up to and including convocation day.
