Graduation and Convocation
Convocation is the formal ceremony for the conferral of degrees and diplomas. Acadia's convocation ceremonies are held in May each year.
Students who graduate in October do not participate in a Fall ceremony, but are invited to participate in the Spring Convocation ceremonies. Fall diplomas are held in the Registrar's Office for pickup or mailing. The Registrar's Office will contact you by email to request a current mailing address.
