What do I need to do to attend convocation?
First, you need to apply for graduation assessment through the Registrar's office, who will ensure you meet all the academic requirements to graduate. Your name is then submitted to the Senate for approval.
Once you receive your letter confirming your graduation status, you’ll receive an email invitation to the convocation ceremony at your CapU email address.
Note: It is possible to register on the day of the ceremony, but you’ll pay an additional fee of $60.
For information on planning for your big day, visit the graduates' page.
Information about regalia and the convocation proceedings are available on the faculty page.
