You must register for graduation whether you plan to march in the NMU commencement ceremony or will celebrate degree completion a thousand miles away. You should do this during the course registration process for what you anticipate to be your final semester. Registering for graduation puts in motion a series of actions, including a final degree audit to determine that you are eligible to graduate, and communication from the registrar’s office on what you need to know and do before graduating.
