The University of Toronto will host a virtual ceremony to celebrate our graduates on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 12:00 pm (EST).
The University of Toronto is pleased to announce the date of our Fall 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 November 2020 graduating class. After the virtual ceremony, diplomas will be couriered (for free) to our graduates over the course of the following weeks. 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.
THE VIRTUAL CEREMONY
Virtual Convocation will take place Saturday November 21 at 12 pm. You can watch the ceremony at www.utoronto.ca/convocation.
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. The ceremony video will contain many elements of a traditional convocation to make your day memorable, including the Chancellor, President, Chair of Governing Council, a Convocation Speaker and special congratulations messages.
The ceremony is pre-recorded and is not interactive. If for any reason you’re unable to watch the ceremony on November 21, the link will remain available for several weeks afterwards.
