Let's celebrate your success!
This is a defining moment in your academic journey. As such, each of the NAIT Schools will be part of an assigned ceremony where we get to celebrate you. During these special celebrations, you will hear from NAIT’s President and CEO, Laura Jo Gunter 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.
Convocation 2022 ceremonies will be held in-person from May 5-7, 2022 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Each ceremony will be livestreamed and a recording will also be available after the ceremony so you can share it with family and friends.

Congratulations class of 2022! As a special memento, NAIT’s 2022 graduating class is showcased in the special Convocation booklet.
April 1 was the deadline to order your graduation gown to ensure your name is included in the Convocation booklet. If you ordered your graduation gown after April 1, your name will still be read out loud at the in-person ceremony.
How to pin your grad gown
Graduates will wear a gown and hood specific to their NAIT credential (degree, applied degree, diploma, or certificate). We encourage graduates to review the gown pinning directions (pdf) prior to the ceremony to learn how to secure your hood.
On-site graduation photos
If you have yet to have your graduation photos taken, photography sessions will be available at the Jubilee Auditorium on May 5 to May 7 for one hour before and one hour after each Convocation ceremony.
