Convocation is an important part of your university experience but this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for physical distancing, all convocation ceremonies at McMaster will need to be different.

We want to celebrate your success and achievement! We’re planning online celebrations for this fall, and then we’ll host in-person ceremonies on a future date—once it’s safe to do so.

In November you will receive an email in your @mcmaster.ca email account. The email will contain a link that will grant you access to your online celebration website.

Please note that while the celebration may look different than usual, the timing of when you graduate and the conferral of your degree will remain the same. Those eligible to graduate will be granted their degree on time. The Senate conferral date is November 11, 2020.
