Wearing a mask is an easy way to help protect yourself and your community. You are strongly encouraged to wear a tight-fitting, multi-layer mask while at convocation. A medical-style mask is best. Many graduates choose to remove their masks as they cross the stage and for pictures. Any updates on our masking requirement will be shared as they become available.

Future Ceremony Dates
The dates of convocation will take place within the following parameters:
Effective February 2020, senate approved a motion to end the practice of holding winter (February) convocation ceremonies. This decision only affects the ceremony. Students who finish their studies in the fall semester will still be able to receive their degree parchment in the winter semester and will be welcome to attend the summer (June) convocation ceremony and formally cross the stage at that time.
During the week of the second Monday of June.
On the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving Monday in October.
