About the Celebration Box

To acknowledge your outstanding achievement, eligible graduating students who confirmed their mailing address and completed the WebSurvey will receive a Convocation Celebration Box that includes their degree parchment. Those that chose to not receive their Convocation Celebration Box, via the WebSurvey, will only be mailed their degree parchment.

What's Inside?

  • Degree parchment enclosed in an SFU degree cover
  • Congratulatory letter
  • Convocation program book
  • Mortarboard and tassel
  • SFU Alumni pin

How to Get Your Celebration Box and Parchment

Eligible graduating students needed to complete the WebSurvey and confirm their mailing address to receive a Convocation Celebration Box by mail.

If you did not complete the WebSurvey you will not receive a Convocation Celebration Box and your degree parchment will be stored on campus. You will receive an additional email, shortly after your virtual convocation ceremony, with details on how to obtain your degree parchment.


Fall 2020 graduating students will be mailed their Convocation Celebration Box via Canada Post in mid-late November. Due to high shipping volume, COVID-19 safety measures and customs processing, SFU and Canada Post are unable to guarantee a delivery date.
