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 79, 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 via UR Self-Service the approval process begins. Applications can be submitted at any time, and are processed in the order in which they are received. There are two application windows:

  • August 1 to January 31: you will be presented at spring convocation in June.

  • February 1 to July 31: you will be presented at the fall convocation in October.

Important

Students can be assured that all U of R credentials will continue to be awarded when earned, and any decision to cancel in-person ceremonies does not, in any way, affect the timing and awarding of degrees, diplomas, and certificates. Please monitor your email, refer to the University's Campus Updates page, and visit the FAQ page.

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.
