Information for Graduate Students

To Participate in Commencement

Graduate students may participate in the commencement ceremony the semester that they pass the final defense or the semester in which they complete all of their degree requirements. Summer graduates are eligible to participate in the spring ceremony prior.  If the degree has already posted, students are no longer eligible to participate in a future commencement ceremony.

It is important to complete the Intent to Graduate Survey by the posted deadline to initiate your Graduation Audit and receive commencement information. Registration and Records sends commencement ceremony information to the student's NDSU email address, at which time the student will need to RSVP for the ceremony if they intend to participate. Ceremony questions should be directed to Registration and Records.
