Convocation 2020

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic and with recommendations from provincial health officials, Lethbridge College has made the difficult and disappointing – but also necessary – decision to cancel Convocation.

We value the health and safety of our students, staff and community, and we want to do all we can to support ongoing efforts to slow the spread of the disease.

A few details:

  • The event will not be rescheduled.
    • However, we are looking into ways 2020 convocates can participate in the May 2021 ceremony.
       
  • Those who have applied and paid the fee to Convocate will receive a refund.
    • It will not be an immediate refund as we are still working out the process, and we thank students for their patience as we set up a system to make sure everyone is reimbursed.
    • We will send an email to let students know more details. Students should please keep checking college email regularly.
       
  • Students’ credential will be mailed at the end of May or beginning of June.
    • Students should remember to update your address using the link below to make sure their credentials finds their way to our grads!
    • https://lethbridgecollege.ca/myhorizon
    • On the lefthand side of the page under the heading WebAdvisor
    • Click on "User Account" and select address change.
    • Update any information on the screen that appears and this change will be in effect our next business day.
  • Students who have not yet applied to graduate are strongly encouraged to do so below as it streamlines the process of getting parchments out in the mail – and it’s free!
    • Students who have already applied to attend convocation do not need to apply to graduate online. 
       
  • If students or family members have pre-ordered flowers for Convocation day, please email The Commencement Group for a refund.
     
  • Students who would like to purchase a mortar board and tassel should visit the Bookstore webpage.
    • When available, mortar boards and tassles will be listed under the GENERAL MERCHANDISE tab, and then in Alumni Gear and/or Diploma Frames section.
    • Please note, shipping fees may apply.
       
  • We are looking into some options to support Convocation photos and to recognize our students achievements.
     
  • Please continue to submit Shout Out messages by clicking the blue button below or media at A Year in College online to help us prepare a tribute video for the year.
     

For answers to any other questions, don’t hesitate to email convocation@lethbridgecollege.ca.

The entire Lethbridge College community is so very proud of the discipline, commitment, flexibility and dedication our students have shown in completing their programs. We celebrate them, and we are proud to have been a part of their educational journey.
