Commencement is a special time to celebrate your academic achievements with family and friends. NIU usually holds commencement ceremonies at the Convocation Center after each fall and spring semester. However, all ceremonies held in June 2021 will be held at Huskie Stadium. 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.
NIU is planning to hold in-person graduation events this spring, including ceremonies for spring 2021 graduates and class of 2020 graduates. See dates and details below.
Under plans developed in consultation with the DeKalb County Health Department, all ceremonies will be held outdoors at Huskie Stadium with limited guests in attendance, to reduce chances of spreading COVID-19.
