Convocation (graduation) is held in late May or early June, at which time certificates, diplomas and degrees are awarded to those students who have successfully completed all of the requirements for their program. Provisional graduates (students who are registered in programs that are deemed provisional) also participate in Convocation. If students cannot attend Convocation, the certificate, diploma or degree is mailed to their home after Convocation.
Convocation & Diploma Frames
Alumni Convocation services
Showcase your achievement with a diploma frame! There are two ways that you can order your frame:
The Alumni Association will also have fresh flowers available for purchase the day of your ceremony or you can pre-order online and pick up the day of the ceremony.
Are you graduating?
You do not need to apply to graduate. (NOTE: Students registered in the Collaborative BScN program with Laurentian University need to satisfy Laurentian University’s processes and an application to graduate from Laurentian is required.)
The College will reserve a graduation gown for you, which may be picked up in the Enrolment Centre one week prior to the ceremonies.
The day of Convocation, graduates must be at the marshalling area (John T. Koski Conference Centre – Room 4420) one hour prior to the start of their ceremony with their gown. All purses and personal belongings should be left with family or friends during the ceremony.
If you’re unable to attend Convocation, your certificate or diploma will be sent to you in June.
Seating for guests is in the gymnasium, where the ceremony will take place. The doors will open one hour prior to the start of the ceremonies. We ask that you limit the number of guests to four to allow all graduates to have family and friends attend their special day. Guests with special needs requiring assistance are asked to contact the Enrolment Centre at 705-566-8101 ext. 7687.
There will be an area at the front of the stage for guests of graduates to take photos. A professional photographer will be available on Convocation day should you wish to have formal photos taken.
Sudbury offers a variety of dining and accommodations options for out-of-town guests.
