New Student Convocation

The New Student Convocation is a ceremony attended by faculty, first-year course instructors, and students to officially welcome and induct new undergraduate students into the UNC Charlotte community of learners. During the convocation ceremony, students will learn about UNC Charlotte’s history, mission, values, and academic expectations. Just as graduation marks the completion of a course of study, Convocation marks the beginning of the new students’ academic journey at UNC Charlotte. The New Student Convocation Ceremony is part of the Day of Convocation, taking place on Monday, August 20, 2018. All new undergraduate students are required to attend the Day of Convocation. This is an opportunity for incoming students to come together for your first official university event. More details will be posted in early August.
