Graduation And Convocation

Graduation

Congratulations! If you are visiting this site you must be close to completing your program. Soon you will be joining over 70, 000 University of Regina Alumni. Once your program is completed, the awarding of your credential is not automatic. In order to graduate you must apply first. Once your application is received by your faculty, federated college, or academic unit the approval process will begin. Applications can be submitted at any time, and are processed in the order in which they are received; however, if you want to attend the convocation ceremony, there are important application deadlines:

  • January 31: to attend the spring ceremony

  • July 31: to attend the fall ceremony

To begin, please click on the Applying to Graduate link below.

Convocation

Convocation is a term often used to mean the meeting of Convocation, and, particularly, the ceremonial meeting at which new graduates are welcomed into the Convocation community. Convocation can also mean the group composed of the Senate of the University of Regina and all the University’s graduates. Our convocation is a ceremony that celebrates the achievements of both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as, honourary degree recipients. Convocation may include the presentation of Deans’ Medals, University Prizes and Governor General Silver and Gold Medals.
