NSU is planning the fall 2020 Commencement ceremonies to be held in the NSU Event Center on Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12.  We want to honor the achievements of our students while adhering to guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control to protect our students, faculty, and staff and slow the spread of COVID-19.  For this reason, the Event Center will be open ONLY to spring and summer 2020 graduates, students who have applied for fall 2020 graduation, administrators, faculty and event staff.  No guests will be able to enter the Center.

NSU will live stream the commencement ceremonies so family and friends can still be involved.  More information concerning live streaming, video recordings, and ceremony logistics will be posted when available..
