Frequently asked questions

Why was the decision made to move from an in-person graduation ceremony to a virtual ceremony? There are very few COVID-19 cases in the Atlantic bubble.

Virtual ceremonies will provide all graduates, wherever they are, with an equal opportunity to participate and celebrate their academic achievements in the safest way possible.

I already paid for my academic regalia. Will I receive a full refund for my rental and associated shipping costs?

For graduates who ordered their academic regalia on or before Sept. 21, 2020, a full refund will be provided. To return your regalia, contact Justin Silastre at Note that refunds may take up to 20 - 30 business days to apply to your credit card.

When will I receive my diploma?

Diplomas will be sent by mail to fall graduates in advance of the virtual ceremony.

Will I still be able to attend an in-person ceremony in 2021?

We understand that for some, being recognized for your accomplishments in front of the UNB community is of utmost importance. For this reason, any graduate of UNB’s Class of 2020 is welcome to attend an in-person ceremony when they are again possible.

Can I receive confirmation of program completion as I need it for employment or continuing studies?

Yes. Letters can be requested through the academic tab in your personal eServices. Confirmation of program completion letters can only be issued by the Registrar's Office once your final grades are released and your completion status has been confirmed by your faculty.

Congratulations Class of 2020

Congratulatory messages from the Honourable Brenda Murphy; President Paul Mazerolle; members of UNB's Board of Governors; members of the President's Executive Team; and alumni.
