There are generally two types of attendees at graduation: friends and family of the graduates, and those who are actually graduating. If you're looking for dates and times for either Fall or Spring graduation, view the NCU Calendar. Graduates, your information is below.



Upon turning in a graduation application, you will receive a summary of the requirements you have yet to meet. Fill out the application one semester before your anticipated completion date, and return to the Office of the Registrar.


A schedule of events and other information is detailed in graduation flyers:

If all of your academic requirements and financial obligations are met, your diploma will be mailed to the address requested by you on your graduation application within the first six weeks after graduation. Diploma frames are available through Elite Frames online, by mail or by visiting the Beacon Beanery on campus.


Those that might be traveling from out of town for commencement might find some useful information on our Parent Resource page. Here you will find campus contact phone numbers, campus map, city map, hotel and restaurant information.
