Ceremony Details

Thank you to all of the volunteers, staff, and vendors that helped make the 2018 Spring Convocation at the University of Regina a success! 


Your Parchment

Your student account balance must be at zero in order for your parchment to be released. You can make payment at Financial Services, AH 205, or via UR Self-Service.

You are encouraged to attend Convocation to receive your parchment; however, if you do not attend the ceremony, you may pick up your parchment at the Registrar’s Office beginning Tuesday, June 12, 2018. You may also arrange for someone to pick-up your parchment by providing them with a signed letter of authorization. Photo ID is required upon pick-up. For parchments not picked up by the end of June we will mail them.

It is your responsibility to ensure your mailing address is up to date in UR Self-Service by the convocation ceremony.

Commemorative Items

Diploma Framing

The University of Regina Alumni Association provides a "while you wait" diploma framing service in the main lobby of the Conexus Arts Centre at Convocation. For more information, please view http://www.mdf-reg.ca/ .

Flowers

Beautiful, fresh flowers will be available for purchase at the Conexus Arts Centre on the day of the ceremony or pre-ordered and have them for pick-up at the Centre at www.convocationflowers.ca/index.php/regina.

*NEW* Commemorative T-Shirts

T-shirts will be for sale at the ceremony. The T-shirts contain all of the graduating students’ names for that convocation with the heading “University of Regina Graduating Class of ___”. Since all of the names are printed for each convocation on a single shirt (approx. 2200 names in the spring, 800 in the fall), the names appear quite small. You may view the t-shirt design here: T-shirt. If you would prefer not to have your name printed on the T-shirt, please contact the Convocation Coordinator at 306-585-4584 at least four weeks before the date of your ceremony.
