Posted March 15, 2021, 4:00PM

Dear NCCU Community:

Over the past few weeks, North Carolina has seen positive progress in responding to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following careful consideration, a review of N.C. Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 195 and discussion with the Commencement Committee and student leadership, the university will host two, in-person Commencement ceremonies for spring 2021 graduates. The ceremony for graduate and professional students will be held on Friday, May 7, at 8 a.m., and undergraduate students will be awarded their degrees on Saturday, May 8, at 8 a.m. Both ceremonies will be held in O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium.

More details will be shared as the plans are finalized. Graduates, further information will be provided by the Office of the Registrar.

We look forward to celebrating the class of 2021!

In Truth and Service,

Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D.
