Frequently Asked Questions

  • We want to have a family party to watch the ceremony with our graduate at a later date. Will the ceremony be recorded?

    Yes. The ceremony will be recorded and available to stream.

  • Why did the college decide to prohibit guests?

    This decision was made carefully after a great deal of deliberation. Because students come from multiple states and several countries, it is impossible to comply with the various requirements for quarantine and testing per the State of NH and CDC guidelines for this event with guests present.

    The in-person option for our students gives them an opportunity to cross the stage and receive their diplomas, while the livestream option will give families a chance to cheer them on, albeit remotely. Safety is our number one priority for the event, so it played a significant role in the decision.

  • Will there be a Scholars and Leaders event and Nursing Pinning Ceremony?

    Yes. These are being planned as in-person events for students and will also be livestreamed for families. Guests will not be permitted to attend the ceremonies in person. Additional information will be announced in the coming weeks.

  • What if my family already made travel arrangements to attend Commencement?

    Individuals who have already made travel arrangements are encouraged to contact their transportation providers to work out alternate arrangements, such as refunds. Airlines in particular have been extremely understanding with passengers due to the pandemic.

    Yes. Specific events and dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

  • Will students still be able to say goodbye to professors?
