The University of Toronto will host a virtual ceremony to celebrate our graduates on Tuesday June 2, 2020 at 12:00 pm (EDT).

The University of Toronto is pleased to announce the date of our 2020 virtual convocation ceremony. We understand the importance of celebrating your remarkable achievements and hard work in reaching this significant milestone, even at a time when our traditional convocation ceremonies are not possible because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In place of in-person ceremonies, the University is planning to host a virtual Convocation ceremony in which the Chancellor will officially confer degrees on members of the June 2020 graduating class. After the virtual ceremony, diplomas will be couriered to our graduates around the day of their originally scheduled ceremony. Please allow some flexibility with this schedule, particularly under these difficult circumstances.

Once the public health situation stabilizes and it is possible to gather safely again, individual academic divisions will be able to plan in-person graduation celebrations to honour our graduates, and their families and friends.


Virtual Convocation will take place JUNE 2 at 12 pm. We hope that you, along with your family and friends, will gather online to celebrate the Class of 2020 – no matter where you might be joining from. You can watch the ceremony at

If for any reason you’re unable to watch the ceremony on June 2, the link will remain available for several weeks afterwards.

We also welcome you to join the conversation on social media using this year’s official hashtag –#UofTGrad20 – to share how you’re celebrating during this unprecedented year. Use #UofTGrad20 or tag @UofT on Instagram or Twitter and you may see your photo or video highlighted on our social media feeds or on our convocation homepage.
