Schedule & instructions

Please note:

Spring Convocation is not a live event. You will be able to view the pre-recorded celebration anytime after 2 p.m. EDT on Thursday, June 16, 2022.

All celebrations are organized by academic school. Not sure which school your program belongs to? Find your program.


How to prepare

Ensure you have completed these steps a minimum of five weeks prior to your convocation to avoid disappointment on your special day. If you have any concerns, please email ConvocationQuestions@conestogac.on.ca.

Step 1: Verify your name and address are correct on the Student Portal
  • Log in to the Student Portal and go to the 'Personal Info' tab. Your first name, middle initial and last name will be displayed on your registration card, your document and on the ceremony screen display. Contact ConvocationQuestions@conestogac.on.ca at least five weeks before convocation if your name is not listed correctly on the portal.
  • Ensure that your address is correct. Your document will be mailed to you if you do not attend convocation.
Step 2: Verify you are eligible to graduate

It is very important to verify that you have met the requirements of your program. To be eligible to graduate at this convocation, you must have completed your program and been granted a decision of "Program Complete" with "Graduate" status by January 30, 2023. This is the deadline to be considered for graduation awards and honours, as well as have your name included in the convocation program. 

Once all your final grades are posted, click the 'View Achievement Report' from the 'Grades' tab in the Student Portal. If your status does not show as 'Graduate', go to the 'My Courses' tab and select the 'View Progress Report' button to see if there are any courses with a missing or failing grade. You may require the services of our Credit Transfer department, or you may need to contact your coordinator to discuss any discrepancies. 

Step 3: Ensure you don’t have any outstanding fees or fines on your account

Check your 'Financial' tab to ensure you don’t have any holds or outstanding fees on your account. Even a parking ticket will prevent you from being able to receive your document.

Step 4: Let us know if you are attending convocation

Indicate your attendance through the 'Services' tab, 'Convocation' subtab in the Student Portal. 

What to expect during your ceremony

Convocation is a time for graduates to celebrate with their family and friends. We expect all students be respectful of their fellow graduates during the ceremony by staying in their seat, being quiet and refraining from cell phone use while the ceremony is in progress.

Step 1: Arrive 90 minutes prior to your ceremony and find the graduate check-in desk
  • Collect your registration card at the check-in desk. The lineups will be alphabetical, by last name. Please bring your ONE Card or photo ID.
Step 2: Gowning and lineup
  • You will be directed to the gowning area to be fitted with a gown and will be provided with assistance to find your line.
  • Please leave personal items such as bags or jackets with your guests or at the coat check.
Step 3: Ceremony
  • In addition to your name being read aloud as you cross the stage, your name, program and any award you have achieved (Honour List, Distinction, High Distinction, President’s Honour List) will be displayed on screen and on our livestream video.
Step 4: Document pick up
  • Documents for graduates will be available for pick up immediately following your ceremony. Please bring your ONE Card or photo ID.
  • There will not be another document for you to pick up if you have already received it by mail.
  • Documents not picked up at convocation will be mailed out immediately following the ceremony.
