Fall Convocation 2021: announcement
monday september 13, 2021
This fall’s convocation ceremonies at #UofT, Ryerson, Seneca and York will not be in-person. U of T’s virtual ceremony is scheduled for 12pm EST on November 18. Details to follow.
Public health guidelines, and province’s physical distancing & capacity limits for non-instructional spaces and events led to this decision. Convocation is an important milestone in the lives for students, their loved ones and our community. Looking forward to one day celebrating in-person.
The University of Toronto will host a virtual ceremony to celebrate our graduates on Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
We understand the importance of celebrating your remarkable achievements and hard work in reaching this significant milestone, even at a time when our traditional convocation ceremonies are not possible because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Parchments, the legal document embossed with the University seal and the graduate’s name and degree, will be couriered for free to Fall 2021 graduates' permanent address in the weeks following the virtual ceremony.
For June 2021 graduates, diplomas with complete address information have been shipped. If your diploma has been returned to our office, you will have received an email from us with next steps.
If you have not received your 2020 diploma, please contact us.
