In light of the uncertainty around COVID-19 and our inability to gather together on campus, we have 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.
Please mark June 12, 2020 in your calendars as the new online Spring 2020 convocation date. We will provide details on this page, as they become available.
The full statement from President Turpin and Chancellor Stollery can be found here.
We also look forward to welcoming our graduates back to the University of Alberta campus at an in-person ceremony, when it is safe to do so. Students will be contacted when this is possible. No action is required. Requests to move to a future ceremony are not possible at this time.
This affects all convocation ceremonies for North Campus, Augustana Campus, and Faculty of Extension students; however, Faculty of Extension students will receive information directly from their faculty.
