We are thrilled to share our plans to celebrate your hard work and dedication during your time at the University of Lethbridge.
We know this isn’t the same as an in-person Convocation. We want to show you how much we appreciate you and celebrate your success until we can commemorate this remarkable achievement face-to-face.
If you completed your program in the spring, your official graduation date is June 5, 2020. That is the date you are awarded your credential, and is what will appear on your parchment and transcript. If you completed your program in the fall and you were approved to graduate at that time, your official graduation date was February 3, 2020 and that date will show on your official documents.
The boxes will be sent to all students who are approved to graduate. If you aren’t sure if you have been approved to graduate, check your status on the Bridge. Your status will be updated following June 5. If you are having trouble viewing your status, please contact email@example.com.
The boxes will be mailed by June 19, 2020. You will be sent a tracking number from FedEx to your @uleth.ca address so don’t forget to check it.
The convocation box will contain:
Mortarboard (cap) and tassel
Relevant awards if earned
Indigenous stole (for Indigenous students)
We will send you an email on June 25 with a link to a special Convocation video made just for you! We will also share the video on our social feeds so friends and family are able to view it with you.
Share your celebration
Even though we cannot be together to celebrate, we want to create a place where your fellow grads, friends and family and the uLethbridge community can share in your celebration.
We will be creating a site to showcase your photos and videos; please use the hashtags #ulethgrad2020 and #ulethalumni on your social media feeds, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want your images or video* of opening the Convocation box, gathering with family or friends, you in your graduation cap etc. Please be sure to blur out any personal information such as your address, degree etc. Safety first!
We look forward to receiving your submissions and to celebrating together from afar.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
