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.
