Commencement is a recognition and celebration of academic achievement and the lasting contributions that students have made to the university. Commencement is a formal ceremony for candidates who have been cleared to walk by their school or program.
Candidates who have achieved degree conferral since last year’s commencement exercises and prior to this year’s ceremony dates, are automatically invited to participate this year (as long as they were not invited to participate in a prior year).
Otherwise, each program/school determines its “participation requirements.” When in doubt, check with your college or visit its commencement website for clarification on the requirements that must be met in order to be invited.
Congratulations on your accomplishment. You have worked hard to earn your degree from Nova Southeastern University and deserve recognition. If you have a special story to tell—an interesting life outside the classroom; exciting plans after graduation; or a unique personal, academic, or business background—we would like to hear from you. We will collect the most compelling stories and pitch them to the media for possible coverage.
