Information for 2021 Graduates
Update February 26, 2021
A message for all graduating students from President & Vice-Chancellor Leo Groarke
Dear Graduating Students,
On Saturday, June 12, 2021, the University will host a special online celebration to celebrate you, our newest Trent graduates.
Moving our Peterborough and Durham GTA celebrations to a virtual platform allows us to mark this milestone accomplishment for our graduates (and celebrate with you), while also prioritizing the health and safety of our students and our communities. We will do everything we can to create a memorable virtual celebration that will recognize your hard work and success.
I invite you to “save the date” for Saturday, June 12. All graduates, together with your families and friends, as well as Trent faculty and staff will be invited to attend, from wherever they are in the world. Further details will be announced in the coming weeks. Be sure to check trentu.ca/convocation for updates.
While this year’s celebrations may look different, the timing of when you graduate and the conferral of your Trent degree will remain the same. If you are eligible to graduate, you will receive your degree, diploma or certificate by courier, along with some special mementos to mark the occasion.
As you look ahead to your next journey as Trent alumni, I want to extend our most sincere congratulations on this immense achievement. All of us at Trent are confident that the enriching education you have received here has prepared you well for the challenges ahead as you pursue your future dreams.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to navigate this very different year.
Stay well, be safe.
Note: you MUST apply to graduate to be awarded your degree although the celebrations are moving virtual. You will not receive your degree if you do not apply to graduate. Complete information on the graduation process.
When it is once again safe and permitted to do so, we look forward to welcoming all of the graduates who have celebrated at virtual celebrations back to campus.
Convocation is the ceremony for the conferral of degrees, diplomas and certificates with traditions rooted in the thirteenth century. But more importantly, it’s the culmination of your hard work, passion and commitment, and it provides the opportunity to celebrate your accomplishments surrounded by family, friends and the entire Trent community. Congratulations, you did it!
