Spring 2021 Commencement Ceremonies
NSU spring 2021 Commencement ceremonies will be held May 7, 8 & 10. Graduates may have two guests attend their ceremony. All ceremonies will be held indoors and masks will be required.
Limiting the guests to two per graduate will provide for adequate space to ensure social distancing. Among other safety protocols in place during the ceremonies, the facilities will be cleaned and sanitized between ceremonies to help protect our guests and the NSU family.
