Fall 2020 Convocation to be delivered virtually

Update for students who have applied to graduate

We want to let you know that we are preparing to celebrate your upcoming convocation virtually. Due to COVID-19, we are working to make the best virtual experience for you and your classmates.

Convocation is the culmination of years of your hard work, passion and commitment. Our decision to forgo in-person convocation ceremonies was a difficult one to make, but we made it with your health and safety top of mind.

Important update regarding Spring convocation

Update for spring graduands and their families

As the University of Waterloo responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, the well-being of our students, their families, and our campus community is our top priority. 
 
After serious reflection and consideration, it is with great disappointment that we inform you that all in-person convocation ceremonies will not take place at Waterloo in June.
