What is the difference between Graduation and Convocation?
Graduation marks the completion of your studies — you have successfully completed all of the necessary requirements in your program. As a result, you will receive an academic degree, diploma or certificate.
Convocation is a time-honoured tradition that commemorates students' accomplishments. It refers to the formal ceremony where the administration, faculty, the Mount Royal community, your family and friends honour your achievements.
The Valedictorian provides a formal address to all fellow graduating students and to faculty and guests at Convocation. Any Mount Royal student, staff, or faculty member can nominate a graduating student to be Valedictorian. Potential candidates should be graduating and convocating at either the Spring or Fall convocation, and must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2, be a strong public speaker, and have a history of involvement in campus or community activities.
Visit the Valedictorian page for more details or to nominate a student.
