Will you be attending your convocation ceremony? Check out some tips and links below to help make your convocation day a success!


  • Arrive on time and go to the AQ 3000 Northeast corner (near Renaissance Coffee Shop) between: 
    • 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. for a morning ceremony
    • 12:45 - 1:45 p.m. for an afternoon ceremony.
  • Check the forecast and dress for the weather! 
  • Bring your SFU student I.D. or a government issued I.D. (driver’s license, passport); you'll need it to get your parchment!
  • Make sure your guests are prepared. Remind your guests that seating is outdoors. Guests should go find their seats early as seating is first-come, first-served.
  • Before you send your guests to Convocation Mall and line up for your procession, give them your purse/bag, flowers, balloons, and other large items to hold onto during the ceremony.
