Convocation Tickets

Order tickets for your guests - Deadline April 1

Invite your friends and family to celebrate your achievements with you!  If you already ordered guest tickets when you applied to graduate, you do not need to do anything further. You should have a confirmation email with your ticket information in it, and you can also see your ticket order if you go to "Apply to Graduate" in your student record.

If you need to enter or change a ticket order after you submitted your graduation application, go to "Apply to Graduate" in your student record and enter the change or new ticket order there.  If you see a message saying "It is too late to make changes to this application," then email us at Convocation@viu.ca.  In your email, tell us all of the following information:

  • How many tickets you need for your guests (you do not need a ticket for yourself):
  • Up to 3 tickets are available to you if you request them.
  • You can also request up to 3 extra tickets, and you will go on a waiting list for these extra tickets.
  • How you want to receive your tickets when they are ready (delayed to early May):
  • Mailed via Canada Post to your student record home address. Note: it could take 1-2 weeks for mailed tickets to reach you, so be sure the address is where you will be.
  • Or held for pickup in building 200, Nanaimo campus, 8:30 am - 3:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

We regret that we can't email tickets - they are paper tickets only.

If any of this information is missing, we cannot enter your order. You will receive a confirmation email from us once we have entered your ticket order.

Deadline to order tickets for all June 2022 convocations is April 1, 2022. 

Please contact us at Convocation@viu.ca with any questions.
