Commencement and End of Year Academic Achievements

Commencement will be celebrated on August 8, 2020, through either a modified live ceremony or a virtual ceremony, dependent upon which best follows CDC guidelines of the time. NOC will mail students their gowns and mortar boards and encourage them to submit photographs of themselves in their regalia. These photos will be incorporated into a video celebration of our graduates that will be played either at the physical ceremony on August 8 or online if a virtual ceremony is necessary.  All students will be mailed their diploma covers with their diplomas if a physical ceremony is not possible.
