Convocation

Welcome to UPEI's Convocation website!

Every spring, the University of Prince Edward Island holds Convocation ceremonies to celebrate and award degrees and diplomas to its graduating students.

In 2020, UPEI will hold four Convocation ceremonies, two on Thursday, May 7 (10:00 am and 2:00 pm), and two on Friday, May 8 (10:00 am and 2:00 pm). The Convocation ceremonies are held indoors at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre at the University of Prince Edward Island, 550 University Avenue in Charlottetown, after graduates have proudly walked in a procession across campus.

In the week leading up to Convocation, UPEI graduates plan a week of activities in combination with official University-organized Convocation events.
