Fall 2019 Convocation

Fall convocation

Fall Convocation ceremonies will be celebrated on Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 at the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts, 175 St. Catherine Street West (entrance on the Place des Arts metro level).

There will be two ceremonies in all, at 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Each ceremony is expected to last approximately up to two (2) hours. Graduands, their family, friends, and other guests are expected to arrive one (1) hour early to facilitate seating.

Please note that convocation is a ticketed event, and each graduand may have a maximum of five (5) invited guests. Tickets will be distributed with your academic regalia and line-up card, so we advise picking them up the day before the ceremony (Monday, October 28th) between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.; however, if necessary, you may also pick them up two (2) hours prior to the beginning of the ceremony. Tickets are for general seating on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that no guest will be admitted to the venue without a ticket. We ask that you only request the number of tickets you need. If you require more than your allotted five (5) tickets, we will distribute any leftover tickets on the day of convocation outside the entrance to the venue.

The ceremonies may be updated closer to the date of Fall Convocation. We encourage students, parents, family and friends to:
