Coronavirus (COVID-19)

While planning for Spring 2021 Convocation is subject to developments in the evolving outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), students will still graduate if their application has been approved by their Faculty or School.

The awarding of approved degrees, diplomas and certificates will still proceed as per the timelines set out on our Grades information page. If approved, they will be conferred on – and be effective as of - the respective dates.

Staff will ensure that the academic standing of our graduates are acknowledged and recorded, and that diplomas are distributed in a timely manner.

We are monitoring events related to COVID-19 and applicable public health regulations. The scope and nature of graduation ceremonies, when confirmed, will reflect a balance between our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our broader Queen’s community with our commitment to provide a meaningful celebration of the academic achievements of our graduates.
