Ceremonies

Commencement is a special time to celebrate your academic achievements with family and friends. NIU holds commencement ceremonies at the Convocation Center after each fall and spring semester. These ceremonies are designed to formally recognize your accomplishments. You can help ensure a positive experience for all attendees by learning what to expect at the undergraduate ceremony and the graduate ceremony.
