Graduation Ceremony
A time of completion. A time of celebration. St. Jerome’s University honours our graduates at a special Graduation Ceremony that takes place prior to the Spring 2018 University of Waterloo Convocation ceremony. For Fall 2017 Convocation information, please visit the University of Waterloo's Convocation page.
All graduates that are part of our community are invited to attend - those that are academically registered through St. Jerome's University, those that have lived in our residence, and those that play an active role within our community.
The Graduation Ceremony is a celebration of our student's academic achievements and co-curricular achievements and commencing these milestones within their undergraduate career. This ceremony takes place within a Liturgy of the Word.
During the ceremony academic and university awards, and co-curricular records, are presented to our students. Academic Awards are presented to graduates who have obtained the highest honour within their program. Students who have made a significant contribution to the St. Jerome's University and the community will be presented with university awards.
Please be advised that the Graduation Ceremony is taking place at our partnered school Resurrection Catholic Secondary School.



*St. Jerome's University incorporates a liturgy of the word into its graduation cermemony in order to celebrate and honour all the ways in which our students have grown and developed during their years at University. In a liturgy of the word, students read passages from the Bible that are especially relevant to the meaning of graduation, and we offer prayers of gratitude for all that our students have accomplished over the course of their university life.
