Congratulations to the class of June 2022!
Celebrate your achievements and graduation at one of 8 convocation ceremonies held by Simon Fraser University at its Burnaby campus this June. Each ceremony will be broadcast live so graduands, family, friends and the university community who are unable to attend in-person can participate.
There are some important steps you need to take after you receive your official senate letter by email and before you can attend your convocation ceremony.
Confirm your attendance and reserve regalia
Ensure you've completed your graduation checklist, including confirming your attendance and renting regalia:
Convocation is an exciting and proud moment for your family, friends and loved ones. To guarantee guest tickets, all graduands must register their guests by May 26, 11:59 p.m. (PT).

The convocation program book includes the full convocation schedule and a listing of all graduate names. Flip through by clicking the arrows. Graduands attending in-person will receive their program book at their ceremony.
SFU respectfully acknowledges that convocation is hosted and filmed on the traditional, unceded and continuously occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples. There is a great amount of work to be done towards reconciliation and systemic decolonization within the university. We are committed to educating ourselves and others, respectfully including Indigenous practices, protocols and ceremony into convocation, and continuing to build meaningful relationships with Indigenous peoples across these lands.
At the Convocation June 2022 ceremonies, SFU will confer honorary degrees on seven distinguished individuals, including visionary leaders in academia, law and politics, world-renowned writers, conservationists and photographers, and inspiring changemakers in the healthcare industry.
