Convocation

Congratulations to all graduates!

Thunderbirds and the entire AU community look forward to celebrating with you!

Convocation is a very special milestone for students and the Algoma University Community. Graduation gives students the opportunity to be recognized for their accomplishments by their families, friends, peers, staff and faculty.

Every graduating student is encouraged to attend this important event to receive his/her degree. Students unable to attend should request that their degree/certificate be conferred in absentia. Degrees and Certificates will be mailed to the address indicated on your application.
