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.

Unfortunately, UPEI Convocation 2020 ceremonies that were scheduled for May 7 and 8 (and related events) have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis and will be held at a later date.

However, UPEI is excited to recognize and celebrate our Class of 2020, though in new ways. The UPEI Senate will meet on Friday, May 8 to confirm that our graduates have met the qualifications for their credentials. By Friday, May 15, the list of graduates and senior class award winners will be posted to a special celebratory web page on, and by Wednesday, May 20, graduates will be mailed a package including their parchment, alumni pin, and any senior class awards they have received. (More information will be shared with prospective graduates directly about the distribution of parchments.)
