2021 Commencement Ceremony

We heard you! After reviewing the latest data and public health guidelines for COVID-19, and because of the overwhelming demand by you, the students, CSN is planning for a traditional, in-person commencement ceremony this spring! While the team still has a lot of work to finish the details and make this the best possible ceremony to honor your accomplishments, we want you to know now so that you can prepare too.

As we plan this year’s Commencement celebration with the guidance of local health authorities, please note that any changes in COVID-19 conditions will require necessary ceremony adjustments. If this were to happen, we will alert you as quickly as possible.
