Graduation Checklist

Can't attend?

What happens if I find I can't attend my convocation?

Undergraduate students

  1. If you do not attend your convocation ceremony, you may pick up your degree parchment at Student Services, Maggie Benston Centre 3200, Burnaby campus, starting the week after Convocation. Check the hours of operation for the Burnaby campus beforehand.
    • Please contact Student Services in advance if you wish to arrange parchment pickup from the Vancouver or Surrey campuses.
  2. If you are unable to pick up your own parchment, you may provide a third-party with authorization to pick it up for you at any of the three campuses.
    • Please follow these instructions.  The authorized individual/third-party will need to bring two pieces of ID (one of which must be photo ID) when picking up your parchment.
