Planning for spring convocation is underway

February may have just arrived, but the planning for McMaster’s spring convocation has already begun.

With physical distancing limitations still in place, the ceremony will be held online, with a week of virtual celebrations in mid-June.

The schedule for ceremonies will be:

Date Time Faculty/School
Monday, June 14 10 a.m. Faculty of Humanities and Arts & Science program
Monday, June 14 12 p.m. School of Nursing
Tuesday, June 15 10 a.m. DeGroote School of Business
Wednesday, June 16 10 a.m. Faculty of Social Sciences
Thursday, June 17 10 a.m. Faculty of Science (including Medical Radiation Sciences)
Thursday, June 17 12 p.m. Faculty of Health Sciences (excluding Nursing)
Friday, June 18 10 a.m. Faculty of Engineering

Online live-streamed celebrations can be viewed from the registrar’s office’s main graduation page. No registration is required, and videos will also be available on the convocation website for those who miss the live-stream.

All graduates will have the option to receive a secure digital version of their diploma anchored in blockchain technology. Paper diplomas will also be mailed as long as the registrar’s office has a current mailing address in Mosaic.

More details will be emailed directly to graduating students beginning in April, and updates will be posted on the RO’s graduation page and on @macstudentservices Instagram.
