Graduation Format – What to Expect
We are excited to share our Virtual Commencement Celebration with you! Here is how to tune in on the big day:
- A link to the online celebration will be sent to each graduate, as well as every member of the NUHS community the week of the event.
- The website will go live on Friday, August 20th, 2021 and will remain live for a year. This means that if loved ones can’t watch the day of, they can still celebrate your accomplishments at a later time!
- The Virtual Commencement will consist of pre-recorded welcome videos, as well as student valedictorian speeches and a full graduate procession with pomp and circumstance as well as a few other special projects we’re working on.
- Each graduate also had the opportunity to create an individual slide for themselves with their name, degree and a self-selected photo in addition to a message for loved ones.
What is my Commencement checklist? Your checklist of things to complete before Commencement includes a few things you’ve probably already done, a few things that are required, and a few things that are completely optional. No matter your program, here are the things you need to take care of prior to the big day:
- Complete the Graduation Petition online from the Registrar’s Office
- Complete the Virtual Graduation Ceremony Survey online to provide:
- Personal Quote
- Candid photo of you and your classmates for special Student Video Montage
- Picture for graduate procession if you were not able to attend one of our photo sessions
Will I be on-camera? No. The graduation celebration is pre-recorded, meaning you won’t have to be “on-camera” at any point. We would like to project your image along with your name, the program you are graduating from, and honors if applicable. If you would rather not have your image projected, please let us know.
Grad Portraits- professional portraits were made available to all students through our local professional photographers. Students will receive 1 free digital download and 1 free print, and will also have access to photos from the photographers and the option to order.
When will I get my diploma? Details from the registrar regarding picking up / mailing diplomas will be going out to students shortly. The Registrar’s Office can handle any questions about diploma printing directly.
So… do I have to participate? If you don’t want to, you don’t have to (although we really hope you do!). The beauty of a virtual world is the option to opt-in to things… so if a virtual commencement isn’t your jam, we totally understand.
…can I still watch it back later? Yup! Recordings of each ceremony will be made available through NUHS’s commencement site and various social media channels following the initial broadcast. Expect to see it, and be able to share it, by Friday, August 20th 2021.
Will the celebration be held live? No, the celebration will be 100% pre-recorded. However, it will debut at a specific time so we’ll be watching it at that time and invite you too as well, if you are able, or any time thereafter.
