St. Jerome's University will be following COVID-19 protocols to support the safety of everyone attending the Graduation Ceremony event, taking place on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
Masking is mandatory.
At this point, proof of vaccination will not be required, but if the situation changes it may become necessary to bring back requirements for proof of vaccination on short notice. We continue to strongly recommend that all participants at Graduation Ceremony have a full course of vaccination, including third or fourth doses when eligible. They should also ensure that they have access to their proof of vaccination and QR code, if vaccinated in a region that provides one. Graduates and their Guests will be asked to show their proof of vaccination if this situation changes.
Questions about the SJU Graduation Ceremony should be directed to SJGrad2022@sju.ca.
