Over 1,200 Undergraduate and Graduate Students to Receive Degrees, bringing the Class of 2020 to more than 6,200 students.

Carleton is hosting a campus-wide virtual Graduation Celebration to honour our November 2020 graduates.

The celebration will feature speeches from President Benoit-Antoine Bacon and others, as well as videos of congratulations from actor and alumnus Hamza Haq, star of the medical drama Transplant, and MP Catherine McKenna, federal minister of Infrastructure and Communities.

“Many congratulations to all graduates for completing your degrees under challenging circumstances,” says Carleton University President and Vice-Chancellor Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “You can be extremely proud and we look forward to celebrating your accomplishments virtually, on Nov. 14, 2020, until such time as we can celebrate in person.”

Many faculties and departments are planning their own celebrations during the week of Nov. 16 to 20. Get all the information here.

Family, friends and community members are encouraged to visit our Social Media Wall and share congratulatory messages to the Class of 2020, using the #CarletonGrads2020 hashtag.

Media are invited to attend the celebrations. The ceremonies will be broadcast online via livestreaming at carleton.ca/convocation/live.

We regret the disappointment caused by the cancellation of this fall’s Convocation ceremonies, a decision guided by public health and government regulations necessary to ensure the safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
