Not Attending Convocation
Candidates unable to attend Convocation will be granted a degree in absentia. Contact the Office of the Registrar to confirm your mailing address when requesting your degree to be mailed. If you prefer to pick up your degree please e-mail email@example.com prior to Convocation.
You can obtain your Degree Certificate by:
- Visiting the Office of the Registrar after convocation with your student ID card; or
- Sending a written request via your Trent e-mail account to firstname.lastname@example.org, the subject line noting MAIL DEGREE-(term you graduated in e.g. (January, Fall, Spring). In your e-mail please include your name, student ID number, and full mailing address.
Take note that degrees will only be held for a period of two years, after which you must request and pay for a replacement degree. In addition, your degree and official transcripts will not be released if you have an outstanding balance owing to the University or have outstanding Library fines.
Although all degrees from the previous Fall and January are available at the Spring Convocation Ceremonies, they are also available after senate meets, in the Fall and January for pick up or mailing for students who don't wish to attend or wait until the Spring Convocation Ceremonies. Spring graduates may pick theirs up at Convocation or in person or by e-mail request after the week of Convocation.
Convocation ceremonies are public events that are recorded in various ways including webcast, video and photography. The ceremonies will be live streamed on trentu.ca during Convocation and will be available to view after Convocation for the benefit of friends and family who are unable to attend in person. These images and recordings may be used for official purposes, such as promoting Trent University. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
