Unable to Attend Convocation:
Degrees/diplomas that are not distributed at convocation, will be held for pick up, by the graduate or their designate (with signed permission letter & identification) in the Registrar's Office for approximately one month after the ceremony. Any remaining degrees/diplomas will be couriered, at university expense, to the last home address on file. Submit the online Non-Attendance Form for degrees/diplomas to be mailed in the week following the ceremony. Students have the responsibility to ensure that their post-convocation contact is correct on LORIS.
We wish to accommodate all of our graduates appropriately in order to ensure full participation in the ceremony. If you have an accessibility need (ie. require a mobility lift, have the support of a service dog, FM system, Braille or alternate format parchment/degree, sign language interpretation, attendant support for stage or seating navigation, etc.) please click here to indicate any needs you may have. We will do our best to ensure your needs are met and your graduation day is special.
