Spring Commencement 2021

May 7-9, 2021 

NKU will hold in-person commencement ceremonies for May 2021 graduates. We will also honor all of our 2020 graduates at their own ceremony. All events will take place in BB&T Arena on campus May 7-9, 2021. This decision was made after consulting with the Office of the Governor and evaluating options to deliver a safe and meaningful commencement celebration.

Ceremony Schedule:

We are pleased to announce that all ceremonies can accommodate limited guest tickets.  Seating capacity is limited and will be strictly monitored to ensure a safe event for all graduates and guests. 

All ceremonies will be streamed live for any graduates or guests who are not able to attend in person. Videos of the ceremonies will be available for on-demand viewing after the fact on the NKU YouTube channel.

Please note that these events must follow all state guidelines and are subject to change.
