Fall 2020 Convocation – Planning for Alternative Scheduling

On March 16, 2020 Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane released an update regarding the continuing operation of Queen’s University in light of the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the world wherein he advised that the traditional convocation ceremonies will not take place in the immediate future. 

Our graduates have worked hard to attain academic success, and we are committed to ensuring they have the opportunity to celebrate this achievement, just as previous classes of Queen's graduates have - with friends and family at Convocation.

The Office of the University Registrar is looking at possible time frames for these ceremonies to occur keeping in mind this is a constantly evolving situation and the future is impossible to predict.

We will be reaching out directly to affected graduates via email with regard to what alternative scheduling is being planned. Updates will also be posted on our website.

In the meantime, we appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing you with an update in the near future.
