Unable to Attend

If you indicated on your Application to Graduate that you plan to attend and are now unable to attend the Convocation ceremony, please notify us as soon as possible by email convocation@dal.ca.

Please include the following information in your email: your B00#, degree/program, and if you would like to pick up your parchment at the Registrar's Office or if you would prefer we mail it to you.

We encourage graduates living in the Halifax/Dartmouth/Bedford/Sackville area to pick up their parchment to avoid delay.

Parchments will be available for pick up beginning Monday June 1 at the Registrar's Office, Room 125, Henry Hicks Academic Administration Building.

You may have someone pick up your parchment on your behalf, provided you send authorization (including the individual’s name) by email (convocation@dal.ca). The individual will be asked to show photo identification at the time of pickup.

Parchments will be mailed in mid-October to those graduates who did not attend Convocation and who indicated they would like to have their parchment mailed to them. It is very important that you ensure your current address in DalOnline is accurate by May 25.

Dalhousie is happy to cover the cost of the initial mailing of your parchment. Subsequent mailing due to incorrect or incomplete addresses will be at the graduate's expense.  Rates for second mailing are: $10 within Atlantic Canada, $20 for the rest of Canada and $100 outside of Canada.
