Graduation & Convocation

Spring 2021 Ceremonies

Drive-in style ceremonies will take place June 7 to June 10. 

Important Information For Those Attending


You can arrive and begin parking in lot 2 up to one hour before the ceremony begins. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. All vehicles must be in place 15 minutes before the ceremony begins.


There will be individuals directing traffic flow into the campus off Richardson Way on the northwest side of campus. Upon arrival, a parking attendant will direct you to a parking stall in lot 2, where the ceremony will take place.

Motorhomes and oversized vehicles are not permitted to ensure all guests can view the screens. Limousines are also not permitted because they will not fit into parking spaces.

Once you are parked, please turn your engine off. Do not exit your vehicle during the ceremony unless it is to use the washroom.

Ceremony radio station and program

Please tune your radio to FM 88.5 to listen to the ceremony. There will be music on the radio station, along with videos and information on the screens playing for one hour before and for one hour after the ceremony.

COVID-19 measures

As convocation is a ceremony, rather than a social gathering, it can proceed in alignment with Alberta Health Services’ restrictions based on the protocols in place.

For everyone’s health and safety, students and guests cannot gather informally outside of vehicles before, after or during the convocation ceremony. Instead, please stay in your vehicle unless you need to use the washroom. If washroom access is required, please go directly to and from the facilities from your car, practise physical distancing and wear a mask when in indoor public spaces.

If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, please stay home.


Washrooms are located on the Cougars concourse through the Recreation Entrance. You must wear a mask and use hand sanitizer to enter the University.

Convocation is a public event and photographs/video taken at convocation may be used for promotional purposes.
