May Convocation

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 May. For those meeting the eligibility requirements for graduation, all degrees will be conferred by the end of May 2020 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 will also mail out 4 copies of the Convocation programme along with the diplomas, and will post an electronic version on-line should you wish additional copies.

For non ROTP students, if you prefer to have your degree conferred at a future convocation then you will need to pull your application to graduate no later than 15 April 2020. Please re-apply to graduate through Mrs. Naomi Greer-Balance or Mr. Martin Laforest if you are an undergraduate student or a graduate student, respectively, in time for whatever convocation you choose.

RMC understands the significance of the convocation ceremonies to our graduates, and their families and friends. Accordingly, those choosing to convocate in May are encouraged to have their degree presented by the Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor at a future convocation. If you choose this option, we ask that you inform Mrs. Naomi Greer-Balance or Mr. Martin Laforest, for undergraduate students or for graduate students, respectively, in time for the convocation of your choosing. 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.
