Spring 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 Spring 2020 convocation ceremonies will not take place. 

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 Fall 2020 as a possible time frame for these ceremonies to occur keeping in mind this is a constantly evolving situation and the future is impossible to predict. The next ceremonies are planned for November 2020 (Fall) and May and June 2021 (Spring).

We will be reaching out directly to affected graduates via email in September 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.

 


Attention Arts & Science MedialsPlease attend ceremony by first alphabetical department, using the Program Plan Code rather than the name.

For example, if your concentrations are ECON (Economics) in Ceremony 9 and DEVS (Global Development Studies) in Ceremony 16, you will attend Ceremony 16.
