Due to current circumstances, we must suspend our in-person Spring Convocation ceremonies planned for June 10, 11 and 15. Rescheduling these events is not possible at this time owing to the Ville de Montreal's announced prohibition of large events through to the fall. We hope to host an in-person convocation ceremony for Spring 2020 graduates when we are permitted to do so and in such a form that conditions permit. We will continue to monitor and evaluate what is possible in the months ahead for in-person gatherings.
We have a team working on a virtual celebration during the month of June, something that offers you, our graduating students, a way of marking this important milestone and sharing the moment with family, friends and all members of the Concordia community. For now the focus is making the most of a virtual moment for graduates in these very exceptional times.
More information will follow on the virtual celebration will follow.
We are unable to grant deferrals to future Convocations as we are uncertain what we will be able to offer as COVID-19 response measures evolve. We will continue to monitor and evaluate what is possible in the months ahead for in-person gatherings.
Once available, diplomas/certificates for Spring 2020 graduates will be mailed via Canada Post at no charge. Students will be required to validate their mailing address prior to the diplomas being sent. More information will follow on how to validate your mailing address.
Should graduates prefer to have diplomas sent by courier to international destinations, charges will apply.
Diplomas/Certificates will be mailed over the course of the summer months dependent on COVID-19 measures and the closure of businesses upon which we rely on for the printing of these degrees. Details will be updated here as information becomes available to us.
Graduates requiring proof of graduation can obtain a letter of attestation (Certification of graduation) from the Birks Student Service Centre. Details on submitting letter requests can be found on the Birks Student Service Centre page.
