Dear NCCU Students: 

North Carolina Central University has successfully worked to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.  

To maintain a safe and healthy environment and ensure adherence to local, state and CDC COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing in a venue with limited capacity, North Carolina Central University’s 137th Commencement exercises on May 7 and 8 will be limited to graduates, university officials, platform participants and individuals working during the Commencement exercises. The university gathered feedback from students and will focus the ceremonies on the importance of celebrating our graduates’ achievements and accomplishments.  

Both ceremonies will stream live on the university’s website and YouTube channel, which will provide an opportunity for graduates’ families and friends to watch, experience and celebrate the Commencement festivities. 

We will continue to provide updates. For questions, please send them to Commencement@nccu.edu.  

Thank you. 

Dr. Jerome Goodwin, University Registrar, Commencement Committee Chair
