New and enhanced public health measures introduced by the Government of Alberta on May 4 have prompted Lethbridge College to move its Convocation 2021 celebration online.

More details will be announced in the coming days as we work to safely celebrate our graduates while ensuring we are following all public health measures with the intention of keeping everyone safe and “stopping the spike” to relieve stress on the health care system.

The refund process for all those who were planning to take part in Convocation is being developed and will be shared once it is finalized.

Students should check their Lethbridge College email and this webpage for more developments in the days to come.

If you have any additional questions, please email them to
