Graduation students celebrating

The June 2020 Convocation Ceremonies have been postponed to June 2021.

FAQ for questions regarding the cancellation of the June 2020 Convocation Ceremonies:

Q: Is convocation still happening in June 2020?
A: The College has made the difficult decision to postpone the June 2020 Convocation Ceremonies. All graduands who would have attended the June 2020 will be invited to celebrate their accomplishment at the June 2021 Convocation Ceremonies instead, which will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, provided that public health directives allow (i.e., restrictions on large gathering have been lifted). 

Q: Does the cancellation of convocation mean I cannot graduate in June 2020?
A: This June we will be enacting an unprecedented and one time process and will confer parchments in absentia. The formal conferral and messages of congratulations will be shared online with graduates in mid-June. Parchments will then be mailed out to students who have been approved for graduation at the mid-June conferral. Parchments will be mailed out through Canada Post.  If you have specific questions about your eligibility to graduate please contact the Graduation Team at gradeval@langara.ca.

Q: How will I get my parchment that I should have received in June 2020?
A: Continuing Studies students will continue to get their parchment by mail as usual. Regular Studies parchments will be mailed to students via Canada Post in mid-June 2020.

Q: How do I update my mailing address? 
A: Log into the Student Information System (formerly referred to as myLangara), click on Students, then select Personal Information.  If you need your password reset in order to access the Student Information System, please email geninfo@langara.ca

Q: Can I still have graduation photos taken?
A: Graduation photos are offered by Lifetouch Photography. Check their website for availability.

Q: Will my graduation fee be refunded?
A: No, graduation fees are charged to cover the cost of processing graduation applications.

Q: How will this impact graduation awards?
A: We are currently evaluating graduation awards and will post more information as it becomes available.

Q: What if I still have convocation related questions?
A: Keep checking the Convocation website, as we will release more information as it becomes available. If you have specific questions that are not answered by the FAQ page, please contact the Convocation Team at convocation@langara.ca
