RSVP for your 30 seconds of fame...

Register to attend your convocation ceremony via Memorial Self Service. Even if you don't plan to attend, please go online and tell us this so arrangements can be made to send your parchment to you.

Be in the know...

Find out the date and time of your ceremony and make sure you know what to expect... like where to rent your gown and how properly to wear the stuff (who really knows that?).

Pick up your gear...

Pick up your academic dress at the rehearsal, 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at the Arts and Culture Centre. At the rehearsal, the university marshall will walk you through the convocation ceremony and explain what is expected of you. It will last approximately one hour.
