Spring Convocation Cancelled, College ‘Exploring Alternative Opportunities’ To Acknowledge Graduating Students

Niagara College’s in-person spring convocation ceremonies are cancelled, it was announced today in a message to graduating students. The message follows:

As we prepare to conclude the winter term while navigating through the extraordinary challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that many of our students are nearing the end of their academic journey.

Marking this significant milestone for our graduates and their families is important to us – it’s the highlight of our academic year – however, the health and safety of our College community remains paramount, and we continue to be guided by measures and government directives related to COVID-19.

Due to the importance of physical distancing and our continued campus closure, Niagara College will not  proceed with plans to host Spring Convocation Ceremonies on campus, as scheduled, in June.

While our traditional, in-person ceremonies have been cancelled, we are currently exploring alternative opportunities to acknowledge the achievements of our 2020 graduates in a meaningful way. Further details will be provided in the weeks ahead.

Those who have fulfilled their academic requirements can also rest assured that they will receive their credentials over the course of the spring term.

Please watch the Niagara College website and your student email for further information.
