Fall Convocation 2019 will take place on November 19 and 20, 2019. Ceremony dates and times are listed by faculty below.
Spring Convocation 2020 dates are June 7, 9 to 12 and 16 to 18. Faculty assignments to these dates will be posted on this website in October, 2019.
Guests and graduates must be seated at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony in preparation for the Academic Procession. Each ceremony is approximately two hours long.
Guest tickets are reserved for graduands who advise us of their intention to attend the ceremony. There is no cost associated with guest tickets.
As a graduand, you are eligible for up to three guest tickets, in addition to your own ticket. Distribution of guest tickets will occur at the Bookstore when you pick up your Convocation packet.
As the number of available guest tickets is projected according to past attendance records, the actual number of additional seats available is not known until graduands pick up their tickets. The Office of the Registrar therefore reserves the right to change the number of guest tickets, as required, according to graduand attendance.
Extra guest tickets
Extra tickets may become available as graduands take less than their maximum. Any tickets not distributed with convocation packets will be made available at the Box Office of the Jubilee Auditorium:
- Shortly after 9 a.m. for the morning ceremony
- Shortly after 2 p.m. for the afternoon ceremony
Any extra tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Given the limited seating at the Jubilee Auditorium there is no guarantee that extra tickets will be available.
We regret that we are unable to accommodate any advance requests for extra tickets.
University of Alberta Convocation ceremonies are held at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, located at 11455 87 Ave. (Spring convocation for Augustana is held on Augustana campus).
Parking is available in the Jubilee Carpark located adjacent to the Jubilee Auditorium. Barrier-free spaces are available on the east side of the auditorium and surface parking is available on the south side. A parking fee will be charged during the ceremony. See Parking Services for details including a map of parking available on campus.
Please plan for extra time to get to Convocation. There are presently construction projects on campus that may affect access to parking and campus will be busy with many other students and their families heading to Convocation.
