How do I sign up to attend a future convocation event?

This form is currently in use for anyone having graduated in June 2020, October 2020, and June 2021.

Welcome alumni!

We know not having an in-person celebration in 2020 or June 2021 was disappointing. We still want to celebrate with you and we need to know how many graduands are interested in participating in an in-person ceremony in the future.

Please take the time to submit the Request to Attend a Future Convocation Event form in Quest before the August 31 deadline - this will help us with our scheduling and planning.

Once it is determined to be safe to celebrate in person, you will receive email communications from the University with information about ceremony dates and action items, such as:

  • Renting your gown so you can cross the stage
  • Arranging accommodation for accessibility needs (if applicable)

Read below to learn how to find the form and some tips for filling it out.

  1. Sign in to Quest.
