Normandale Commencement- 2024

2024 Commencement Program

Commencement is a celebration to honor Normandale graduates. Held each year in May, commencement immediately follows the end of the spring semester.

Those eligible to participate in commencement include:

  • Candidates for current spring and summer semester degree completion
  • Students who completed a degree or certificate program the previous fall semester

All graduates must wear appropriate apparel to participate in the ceremony. See below for participant information, and be sure to apply to graduate before reserving your cap and gown!

Participant Information

Each participating graduate will receive tickets for their guests. Graduates do not need a ticket for themselves. We cannot guarantee a certain number of tickets as this is dependent on the number of graduates who participate. However, most years we have been able to give graduates 3-4 tickets. Due to limited seating at Orchestra Hall, all guests are required to have a ticket to attend the ceremony. Children under the age of 2 may be admitted without a ticket, but will need to remain in a family member’s lap. Tickets will be mailed out with your graduation "grad" pack which will ship the week of April 29 - May 3, 2024.

Please email if you have any questions.
