Summer graduation

Summer 2020 Graduation Ceremony

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we have made the difficult decision to suspend Summer 2020 graduation ceremonies at Douglas College. We understand many of our graduates have been looking forward to celebrating this moment with family and friends. However, the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is a top priority.

We are actively looking at alternate ways to celebrate and recognize our summer graduates and will share more information as it becomes available.


We will not be deferring graduation applications at this time. Graduating students who applied for graduation by the April 15, 2020 deadline and met the requirements for their program will have their credential awarded in June 2020 and their parchment mailed out to them.

All students who are awarded credentials in June 2020 will be invited to attend either the February 2021 or June 2021 ceremonies. More information about these ceremonies will be shared at a later date.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate this unprecedented situation together.
