In order to safeguard the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) will not be holding a Convocation ceremony in its traditional form this June at the Canadian Forces College, Toronto. For those meeting the eligibility requirements for graduation, all degrees will be conferred on June 23 2021, in absentia. Diplomas will be mailed out to the mailing address that graduates have entered in My Services. For those who do not provide a mailing address in My Services, your diploma will be retained at RMC for pickup at an appropriate time in the future.
RMC understands the significance of the convocation ceremonies to our graduates, and their families and friends. Accordingly, those choosing to convocate in June are encouraged to have their degree presented by the Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor at a future in-person convocation. If you choose this option for the November 2021 Convocation, we ask that you inform Mrs. Naomi Greer-Ballance (Undergraduate Studies);or Ms. Lyette Gaudet (Graduate Studies) no later than September 10th, 2021. Please email Convocations@rmc-cmr.ca with your intent.
The Commandant and Principal are very sorry to have had to make this difficult decision but we all hope you understand the extraordinary measures that need to be taken during this difficult time.
