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.

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. Please use the menu at the right of this page to find all the information you need about UPEI Convocation.

Please note: the University Senate has approved new dates for Convocation. In 2020, UPEI will hold four Convocation ceremonies, one each in the morning and afternoon of Thursday, May 7 and Friday, May 8. We are currently updating our website to reflect these changes.
