Two weeks left to RSVP for Commencement
April 26, 2021
We are two weeks away from the deadline to RSVP for Commencement and a little over three weeks away from the deadline to order your cap and gown. It only takes a few minutes to make sure you are all set!
1 Find the date and time for your ceremony at the NIU Commencement Website.
2 Then use the RSVP link on the NIU Commencement Website to officially register for the appropriate ceremony.
Note: The deadline to reserve a spot is May 10, 2021, but early registration is strongly encouraged. This will help us with our planning.
3 Visit the Cap and Gown page to purchase your cap and gown (your academic regalia). Orders must be submitted no later than May 20, 2021.
Note: You must be in a cap and gown to participate in commencement and there will be no option to purchase a cap and gown on site.
Note: Please feel free to use a borrowed black cap and gown if you want to borrow regalia from a family member or friend.
If you have questions about completing these steps or need support, please contact email@example.com.
