International graduation celebration
The Center for International Education hosts the International Graduation Celebration and Reception at the end of each semester. It is a formal ceremony in honor of NAU’s graduating international students, graduating study abroad students and our departing exchange students and visiting scholars. Please note that this is not the official NAU graduation ceremony. If you are a degree student and wish to participate in the official NAU graduation, please apply for graduation online.
Please note that in the past some students received sashes at this event. The CIE is no longer providing sashes, but will be providing pins to all participants as well as the certificates that every participant receives.
