2020 Convocation Update 

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our convocation ceremonies this June. We recognize that this news is disappointing for our graduates, their families, friends and the entire Nipissing community, however the safety of our Lakers community is paramount. Once details and alternative dates are confirmed, they will be communicated to you.

Please see the frequently asked questions for more information


All convocation ceremonies take place in the RJ Surtees Student Athletics Centre at Nipissing University, 100 College Drive.

Ceremonies are approximately 90 minutes and take place in the air-conditioned gymnasium.

All students who graduated between August 2019-April 2020 will be included in the Spring 2020 Convocation. The Registrar's Office will send out an Information Package two weeks prior to Convocation.

There will be a reception with light refreshments immediately following the ceremony in the RJ Surtees Student Athletics Centre Gym next to the ceremony space. See you there!
