Welcome to the web site dedicated to answering your questions about North Dakota State University's commencement activities. Designed for students, parents, faculty and staff, this site offers information on a variety of items, such as your cap and gown, important information for faculty, staff, guests, and students about the ceremony, how and when to get to the venue and locating accommodations for family and guests.
Commencement is a very positive symbol of individual student success, family and community pride, and faculty and staff support. Individuals who do not attend commencement miss one of the most exciting days on our campus and forfeit a full perspective on the wonders of the collegiate experience.
The information provided here is meant to help guide you through this memorable time for upcoming graduates, their families and the entire university community. And enjoy NDSU's commencement, a celebration of achievement.
