Please be informed the deadline to RSVP  for the 2023 Commencement Ceremony is April 21, 2023.


We cannot wait to celebrate your success! Visit  the 2023 Commencement page for more details.

All graduating students are encouraged to participate in commencement exercises held at the close of the spring semester each year. During the ceremony, all bachelors, associate degrees, and certificates of achievement are recognized for summer of the previous year, fall of the previous year, and spring of the current year. Applicants for all three graduating terms receive spring commencement ceremonies information via email and regular mail. Participation in the Commencement Ceremony DOES NOT guarantee completion of a degree or graduation from CSN. The degree is conferred once the student's transcript denotes completion of the declared major.

Contact the Graduation Team if you have any questions about meeting graduation requirements or commencement.
