York University’s 2022 Spring Convocation ceremonies will be delivered in-person this year. We will also be inviting all graduates who have celebrated at virtual ceremonies in 2020 and 2021 to join us at in-person ceremonies this June. Please see the full statement from President & Vice-Chancellor Rhonda Lenton.

Convocation is the formal ceremony for the conferral of degrees, diplomas and certificates. It is also a time-honoured tradition that celebrates every student’s academic accomplishments. Convocation is a commemoration of your life at York and an opportunity to share this significant milestone with your family and friends.

This website will provide you with all the relevant information about convocation, including how to ensure you are eligible to graduate, how to apply, RSVP and much more to help you to enjoy your convocation day. Select a category below to get started.
