Due to ongoing public health measures in response to COVID-19, Convocation 2021 will be held virtually.  

Let's celebrate your success!

This is a defining moment in your academic journey. As such, each of the NAIT Schools will have their own virtual ceremony.  During these special virtual celebrations, you will hear from NAIT’s President and CEO, Laura Jo Gunter, and NAIT’s VP Academic & Provost, Dr. Sue Fitzsimmons – plus many honoured guests, alumni, faculty and staff as they recognize your many achievements.

Together with your classmates, we will look back on your time at NAIT and celebrate your academic success.
