Graduating in November 2023?
Please note that there is no charge for convocation tickets.
Fall 2023 Convocation ceremonies will be held in Convocation Hall from November 6-9, 2023. Please see ceremony dates for details as they become available.
Please note that the deadline to request name changes/corrections for the Fall 2023 Convocation period has been extended to October 4, 2023.
The Office of Convocation will begin sending information to potential graduates, including details regarding gown rental and ticket ordering, for the November 2023 Convocation in late September (early October for School of Graduate Studies students).
Attending the convocation ceremony is a simple two-step process. You will first need to arrange for Gown and Hood Rental. RSVP and guest ticket orders are the second step in the process. Please visit the Preparing for Graduation portion of this page to ensure that you have completed all of the steps necessary for a successful ceremony.
The RSVP function will only be active in ACORN as of October 12 at 10 AM.
Note: as e-tickets can only be ordered and printed through ACORN, graduating students must have ACORN access. ACORN access requires a valid UTORid as well as a valid UTmail email address. For best results, please use Google Chrome to access ACORN.
