Welcome, NCU graduates!
Use this page to find everything you need to know about registering for and attending our Commencement 2014 festivities. We look forward to meeting you in June!
Graduation Event Registration
Northcentral University bachelor's and master's students who are enrolled in their last class, and doctoral students who have passed their oral dissertation defense - as of May 1, 2014 - are invited to walk in Commencement 2014. Commencement 2014 will be held at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to noon. You will need to register online to participate in Commencement 2014. Each graduate may request up to six tickets (one for yourself, and five others for guests). You and your guests will pick up your tickets on Saturday morning, June 7, when you arrive at the Orpheum Theatre. When you register, you will also be asked if you would like your name to appear in the 2014 Graduation Program, and if so, how you would like it to appear.
If you are unable to attend Commencement, but would still like to have your name included in the 2014 Commencement Program, please complete this brief form no later than April 30, 2014. We will then mail you a copy of the program after Commencement.
Following Commencement 2014 on Saturday, we invite you to join Northcentral University leaders for a Graduation Reception in your honor, from 1 to 3 p.m., held at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown. If you plan to attend the reception following Commencement, please RSVP here.
Academic Recognition Reception
Prior to Commencement 2014, on Friday, June 6, the University will host an Academic Recognition Reception at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown from 4 to 7 p.m. The event will include award presentations, honor society inductions and the Graduate Student Poster Session. We will also be hooding our doctoral graduates at this time. Doctoral graduates do not need to wear their regalia, but will need to have their hood with them. ArtNeedle will be on site at the Sheraton on Friday night so you can pick up your regalia. The NCU Student & Alumni Store will also be open for you to purchase merchandise. If you plan to attend the Academic Recognition Reception, please RSVP for the event here.
