TRU holds convocation ceremonies in June and October each year in the Tournament Capital Centre. Students who have completed all requirements for graduation in an undergraduate, graduate, or university preparation program are eligible to participate.

Students who have outstanding fees or fines are not eligible to attend or receive their credential, and should contact the Registrar's Office. See the official policy for regulations governing convocation at TRU.

Graduating or convocating?

All TRU students must apply to graduate in order to receive their credentials. This is different from attending the convocation ceremonies for which you also must register. You can apply at any time through myTRU.

After applying for graduation and to attend convocation, students should check myTRU to see whether their graduation has been approved.


Free parking is available in Lot N for graduates and guests on convocation day. Shuttles run between Lot N and the convocation venue at the Tournament Capital Centre. » Parking Map
