The University of Toronto is pleased to announce the date of our Fall 2021 virtual convocation ceremony. We understand the importance of celebrating your remarkable achievements and hard work in reaching this significant milestone, even at a time when our traditional convocation ceremonies are not possible because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The University will host a virtual Convocation ceremony in which the Chancellor will officially confer degrees on members of the November 2021 graduating class. After the virtual ceremony, diplomas will be couriered (for free) to our graduates over the course of the following weeks. Please allow some flexibility with this schedule, particularly under these difficult circumstances.

Once the public health situation stabilizes and it is possible to gather safely again, individual academic divisions will be able to plan in-person graduation celebrations to honour our graduates, and their families and friends.
