Fall 2020 Graduation

Graduate and Undergraduate Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates

Welcome to our Fall 2020 'Virtual' Convocation - a celebration of achievement, where we honour the hard work and academic excellence of our graduates. We are excited to share this commemoration with you on your graduation, incorporating those aspects of a traditional Queen's Convocation that have created memories for generations of our graduates.

While the ongoing response to COVID-19 has meant that we must celebrate at a distance for the time being, we look forward to a day when we are able to meet once again and join you in celebration.

The following is a listing of virtual ceremonies, as well as the date and time the event will be broadcast. Please note that the broadcasts will remain at this location for future viewing. 

Congratulations and Cha Gheill!

Convocation update for Fall 2020 Graduates - March 1, 2021

While we provided you with our first-ever virtual convocation in November, we recognize that many Fall 2020 graduates were disappointed not to have had the opportunity to gather on campus with families, friends, and classmates, and cross the convocation stage in celebration of your significant accomplishments at Queen’s.

While we had hoped to resume in-person ceremonies this spring, due to the ongoing pandemic and the knowledge that public health restrictions will continue for some months yet, we have made the decision to postpone in-person spring 2021 convocation ceremonies.

When we are able to gather safely together again - with whatever modifications may be required to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 – we will be inviting you to take part in an in-person ceremony to mark your graduation.

We will stay in touch about rescheduled in-person convocation as soon as we can be confident of timing, and you can also check this webpage for updates.
