Convocation is a traditional academic ceremony attended by graduating students and their family and friends. Graduates wear caps and gowns and receive their degrees, diplomas, or certificates. It is an event to recognize excellence and celebrate your academic achievements. Convocation ceremonies are held in the 1st Choice Savings Centre at the University of Lethbridge.
Once you have applied for graduation on the Bridge, you may RSVP to reserve your regalia.
Guests of graduates need not RSVP; seating is on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to invite loved ones from home who will need to apply for a temporary resident visa to come to Canada, you can find more information about invitation letters here.
