Convocation

Gifts for your graduate

Updated: April 9, 2020 - 3 pm


June 2020 convocation ceremonies postponed

UFV is following the direction of the BC Provincial Health Officer and the requirements of the BC and federal governments during the COVID-19 pandemic in maintaining social distance, keeping our community healthy, and flattening the curve.

Convocation ceremonies are separate from your achievement of graduating. If you have earned your credential and completed the graduation requirements (visit UFV graduation for details), then you will have graduated and will receive your credential in the mail — even if we don’t celebrate together on stage until a future date.

We will share new convocation plans, once finalized, here and by email to all our students.

Convocation is a special time for students

It marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. Make a donation in their honour.

You may also wish to establish an award, scholarship or bursary to mark this milestone achievement. Your donations will engage learners, transform lives, and build community at UFV.
