Convocation Schedule

In the weeks leading up to Convocation, UPEI graduates, working with the Grad Class Coordinator, plan  a variety of activities in addition to the official University-organized Convocation events. 

This year, a month of post-graduation workshops and social events have been organized to celebrate and support the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 and help graduates transition to their next chapter, remain connected to their alma mater, and have fun with their peers.

Graduates can receive up-to-the-minute information by visiting the UPEI Grad Month 2021 Facebook Page. Please note that each event requires students to sign-up in advance using the UPEI Grad Month Event Registration Form. 

We are excited that UPEI will be able to proceed with seven Convocation celebrations, one for each faculty, that feature both an online and in-person component for the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021:
