Family and guests attending Convocation | Mount Allison

It all leads to this!

Earning a degree is something each graduate should be proud of and Convocation is an opportunity for families to celebrate their student's achievements with them!

Important note: as has been the case all year, Convocation ceremonies and events have been organized with safety top of mind and therefore all attendees must be fully-vaccinated and masked.

Staying on campus

Family and friends can book on-campus accommodations through Conference and Events Services — Friends & Family Accommodations.

Getting here and parking
Convocation tickets for guests

If you would like to attend a graduation ceremony as a guest, you must obtain a ticket from a graduating student.

Each member of the Classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022 may have a maximum of two guest tickets for their Convocation ceremony.

They can reserve their guest tickets when they order their academic regalia. Tickets must be picked up during Convocation Weekend when they collect their gown rental in Tweedie Hall.


What if my student can't pick up the tickets in time? If special circumstances prevent your student from picking up  reserved tickets, please e-mail or call (506) 364-2269. Otherwise any tickets not picked up by 4 p.m. on Sunday will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis at Convocation Hall on Convocation Day.

Can my student have more than two tickets? Extra Convocation tickets are no longer available.
