3rd March 2020

In view of the current development of COVID-19 in Malaysia and overseas, and based on the general advisories of the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, Malaysia and The World Health Organization (WHO), which has raised the global COVID-19 risk to its highest level, UTAR has decided to postpone the UTAR March 2020 convocation ceremony which is originally scheduled on 13th, 14th and 15th March 2020 at UTAR Dewan Tun Ling Liong Sik, Kampar campus.  

The University has made this decision after much serious deliberation and has taken into consideration the implications on the safety and health of UTAR graduands, their family members, UTAR guests, staff and students.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and we seek your kind understanding on this matter.

The University will continue to monitor the situation and the dates for the postponed Convocation Ceremony will be announced in advance to all graduands.

Convocation Fees

The following will apply for Convocation Fees:

  • The full amount of Convocation Fee paid for March 2020 Convocation will be carried forward to the postponed Convocation.
  • Graduands who opt not to attend any convocation ceremony in view of this postponement will only have to pay Convocation Fee of RM250.00 and any excess fee paid will be refunded.

Collection of Convocation Attire/Photography
