Northern Kentucky University is looking forward to celebrating graduates in May 2021 at BB&T Arena.
Due to state and federal guidelines related to the ongoing pandemic, precautionary measures will be in place to ensure a safe event for all attendees. Building capacity is limited and will be strictly monitored to provide for social distancing. All attendees will be expected to adhere to the Norse Nine principles, including the wearing of masks and observing social distancing throughout the ceremony.
Faculty who wish to attend commencement should complete the faculty request form by Monday, April 26. Advance RSVP for faculty will be required to attend the ceremonies. Faculty will dress in academic regalia.
(Please note: this request form is for ceremonies May 8-9 only. Chase College of Law faculty will be contacted separately by their college with more information on their May 7 ceremony.)
To give equal and ample opportunity for our students to participate, first priority for attendance has been given to graduates and their limited guests. Once the bulk of graduate requests have been fulfilled, we can confirm the capacity for our faculty to attend in person. If faculty interest exceeds the seating availability, RSVPs will be accepted in the order they were received.
All faculty who submit a request to attend will be contacted by the Office of Special Events with confirmation and additional instructions the week of April 26-30.
