Convocation ceremonies

Convocation is a unique event, a time to celebrate with those who have helped you reach your goals — family, friends and members of the uOttawa community.

There are two main sets of Convocation ceremonies each year: one in the Fall and one in late Spring.

Spring 2021 ceremonies

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Spring Convocation will be held virtually in June. The full schedule for these ceremonies will be available in May. All students who meet the requirements to graduate from their degree programs will be invited to participate in these virtual ceremonies and will receive their diplomas by mail shortly thereafter.

Reminder: All graduating students must register in order to receive their degree, regardless of whether they participate in their virtual ceremony. Online registration for spring graduation will be open from February 12 to March 31, 2021. Once online registration opens, we will send an email to the @uOttawa.ca addresses of students who are eligible for graduation.

Rest assured that all graduates will be invited to return to uOttawa for an in-person graduation ceremony once public health guidelines permit.
