Celebration of our Graduates!

Congratulations, you’ve graduated! We want to honour your success.

Over the last few years, you’ve shown resiliency, commitment, and hard work!  Now, it’s time to celebrate with those who’ve helped you reach your goals and share in the excitement with your classmates. 

It remains our intention to host an in-person convocation ceremony the week of June 13, 2022. We also continue to keep the health and safety in mind of the Cambrian community and will continue to monitor community guidelines and regulations as they relate to Covid-19*. 

View the Convocation ceremony schedule, including dates and timesHERE

Please note that we are actively working on confirming several important details. As more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate those updates.   

*In the event that convocation must be rescheduled or cancelled, any costs incurred for travel will not be covered by Cambrian College. 

 

Convocation Ceremony Details 

Graduates who have reserved a gown must be at the John T. Koski Conference Centre at Cambrian College 1 hour prior to their convocation ceremony time with their gown. Refer to your email or the convocation ceremony schedule to confirm which ceremony to attend

You can pick up your gown on the day of your ceremony in the Indigenous Classroom (room 2119) as early as 8:30 a.m. Gowns will also need to be dropped off at this location. Reminder: unreturned gowns are subject to a $150 replacement fee. 

Please leave all your personal effects with your guests (purses, bags, hats, etc) as the Koski Centre will not be secured during the ceremony. 

Your guests must proceed to the gymnasium where your convocation ceremony will take place. Gym doors will open 45 minutes before the ceremony is scheduled to begin. 

Tickets for your guests are not required. 

Due to a high volume of graduates, we ask that guests be limited to 2 per graduate to allow for all graduates’ guests to attend. 

If you have made special arrangements for your guests with specific needs, please let a staff member know upon arrival to the gym.   

The amphitheatre next to the gym will be available for guests to view the ceremony in the event the gym reaches capacity. 

Your convocation will be live-streamed here on this webpage for your guests who are unable to attend in person and will be available after the ceremony.
