How to attend

Even if you are not attending a convocation ceremony, you must apply to graduate to receive your credential.

If you have already applied to graduate or received your credential, skip this step. You will receive your link to register via email (step 2).

  Step 2: Register for your Ceremony

You will receive the link for convocation registration by email after you apply to graduate. If your program has already concluded and you have already applied to graduate, you will receive a registration email for your ceremony by email.

  Step 3: Complete your Registration

Sending our graduates off with a positive and lasting experience is important to us. In order to contribute to the overall success of the convocation ceremony, there is a $60 non-refundable convocation fee. Included in this fee is a souvenir gown package for you to keep.  

Within 3 business days after you register for your ceremony, this fee will be automatically applied to your CNC Connect account. Make sure to complete your payment by Thursday, May 18th, either in person in the Office of the Registrar at your local campus, or online through Pay my Tuition. 

Registrations after May 18th will incur an additional $40 fee. 

  Step 4: Prepare for Convocation
