Fall 2021 Convocation

Fall 2021 Virtual Convocation Ceremony

Friday November 19, 2021
Formal Ceremony at 2:00 p.m. PST Livestreamed
Watch Parties by your faculty and Virtual Graduate Processions to follow

While we had hoped to be in person, and had made every effort to do so; we are moving our Convocation online due to the delay in advancing to Step 4 in the BC Restart Plan.  For now, know we are so incredibly proud of you and we recognize and appreciate that this news is likely very disappointing. We appreciate all you have done to get here and please know, once it is safe to do so, we will have an opportunity for you to come to campus to celebrate in-person. You have accomplished an amazing climb and we don’t want to hold off celebrating with you, so please join us Friday, November 19th.  Be sure to watch your email to learn how you can be a part of this momentous celebration.  

Congratulations, Royal Roads University Class of 2021!
