Commencement Weekend 2021, May 7-9


Congratulations on your impending graduation! North Central College intends to host multiple in-person commencement ceremonies for the Classes 2021 and 2020, undergraduates and graduate students so long as local and state guidelines allow. 

* The planned schedule of events is tentative and all events are subject to change. Factors including weather and COVID-19 protocols could cause changes in the schedule on very short notice. Thank you for your understanding.

Watch the Live-stream!


The live-stream of commencement ceremonies will begin 15 minutes prior to each ceremony, and each ceremony will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube for long-term viewing.
