Dear students, faculty and staff,

The health and safety of students, faculty and staff are our top priority. In response to the COVID-19 health emergency and in line with measures recommended by New Brunswick Public Health, UNB will postpone both Fredericton and Saint John Spring graduation ceremonies to Fall 2020.

We recognize that delaying the ceremony may cause some concern for graduating students. We are actively exploring options to select a new date. Updates will be communicated as they become available.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this unprecedented situation. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns not listed in the graduation frequently asked questions. For inquiries, please contact


Dr. Paul J. Mazerolle
President and Vice-Chancellor
The University of New Brunswick
