Congratulations, Royal Roads University Class of 2021!

We are so incredibly proud of you and recognize that this news is likely very disappointing.
We appreciate all you have done to get here. Please know, once it is safe to do so, you will have an opportunity for to come to campus to celebrate in-person.
You have accomplished an amazing climb and we don’t want to hold off celebrating with you, so please join us Friday, Nov. 19 for your virtual celebration. Be sure to watch your email to learn how you can be a part of this momentous celebration.
