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.
Completing your degree is a big accomplishment, and we want to make sure your commencement ceremony goes as smoothly as possible. The following information will help ensure you have a great experience.
