Student leaders were consulted about the proposed changes for the traditional in-person ceremony. We want to ensure graduating students have an opportunity to celebrate their achievements, and have committed to holding both a virtual ceremony and a postponed in-person graduation ceremony.
We are currently working out the details for the virtual ceremony/ceremonies, with participation of graduating students and guests taking place online. Please be patient during our planning process and we will post all the details as soon as we can.
The virtual ceremony/ceremonies will not be held at the UBC Okanagan campus. Participation in the ceremony will be online.
We are still working out the details at the moment and will communicate this information as soon as the dates and times are confirmed.
We are still working out the details at the moment and will communicate how graduating students will be participating in the ceremony. At this time, you will not need to book/rent regalia, and anyone who has booked regalia for Spring 2020 will receive a full refund. For regalia related questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are working towards a virtual ceremony that all graduates and their friends and family can view. Please be patient as we work out the details.
There is no limit to the number of family members who can view the virtual ceremony. The more the merrier.
The virtual ceremony will be made available for you and your family to view, just as our previous live ceremony webcasts were available.
All past ceremonies are available to view on the archived webcast page of the UBC Graduation website. We will post the virtual ceremony on the same page for you to view at a later date.
Unfortunately, we do not issue refunds for guest travel.
Diplomas will be mailed to graduating students. More details will be shared about this process once confirmed.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate graduates who defer their attendance from Spring 2020 to any future Graduation ceremonies.
No, participation in the virtual ceremony will be optional.
We are working with our photography partners at the moment and will communicate if and when photography will be available.
