As the year comes to a close for post-secondary students across BC, many who would normally cross the stage in traditional graduation ceremonies will have the ability to particpate in a virtual replacement while they patiently await a safe date for an in-person ceremony.
However, many have been left wondering what the virtual replacement will look like?
Many wondering when the virtual ceremony will even be held.
BCIT has shared few details about what the virtual convocation could look, or sound like, or even when it might be. Those questions are causing uncertainty is feeding a growing frustration over social media from the student body who are expected to graduate this spring.
When contacted for a statement the school said all of the details they could share are available through a newly constructed section of the institute’s website found here.
The virtual rendition was announced back on April 9th, and as of May 6th did not have a date specified for when the ceremony may be held.
According to the school website, the ceremony is “to be held on a date in mid-June.” Although, it is still unclear which day that will be.
