Parents and Friends

If you are the parent of an NMU graduate, congratulations! This is a big moment for your family, your child and you.


We hope that if your NMU student is participating in the commencement ceremony that you'll also be able to attend. No admissions tickets are required for the ceremony, so you can invite any relative or friend who would be interested in joining you to attend, too.

If you cannot attend the ceremony, you can still watch your student cross the stage via WNMU television or streaming video broadcasts.

Please check out the many guest services NMU provides family and friends during commencement, as well as the various activities that are related to commencement weekend and the graduation of our students.

If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us. The staff members in the appropriate office for the question you have will be happy to assist you.

Again, congratulations to you, your family and your NMU soon-to-be-alumnus!
