Graduation vs. Convocation

Graduation is the term used to acknowledge that you have completed your degree requirements and have been approved by Senate to graduate. Convocation is the ceremony where the Chancellor or his delegate confers the degree.

You must have applied to graduate and be faculty-approved for graduation in order to partake in Convocation. Learn more about Convocation.

For information about Convocation, contact convocation [at] mcgill.ca.
For information about graduation requirements and verification, contact your faculty advisor
For any issues concerning your graduation status, contact your faculty's Student Affairs Office.
