Convocation postponed

The University of Winnipeg will postpone its June convocation ceremonies to safeguard everyone’s well-being during the public health emergency. Our intention, circumstances permitting, is to hold these ceremonies in the fall. Every graduate deserves to attend their convocation.

The delayed celebration does not impact your accomplishment in any way. You will still graduate in June and we will send your parchment to you by mail. You can proudly call yourself a UWinnipeg alum, with all the privileges that brings.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!

Stay healthy and visit our COVID-19 website for regular updates and answers to your frequently asked questions.
