Q. I am trying to RSVP, but it says I am not eligible to graduate…what should I do?

with the subject line “Graduation Eligibility Check.” No additional information is required. We will review your student file and provide an update within two (2) business days.

Q. What should I wear for my Graduate Photos and during my graduation ceremony?

We recommend using the following guidelines as you prepare for your big day!

Dos! Don’ts!
Observe Professional grooming standards used at NCC. Ignore Professional Grooming standards.
Wear Professional Dress and Shoes (i.e. interview attire). Wear Casual wear or Athletic wear.
Choose solid or lightly patterned fabrics. Choose boldly patterned fabrics (as they can be distracting in your photo).
Choose mid-tone colors (e.g. blues, greens, purples). Wear white (the photo backdrop is white and you will look like a floating head).
If wearing a button up, consider a tie, sweater, or blazer. Choose very bright colors (e.g. highlighter tones).
Choose flesh tone colors (as tops that match your skin tone can blend your face
into your clothing in the photo)


Q. Can I decorate my graduation cap?

After checking in with the welcome team, you will be mingling and taking photos with instructors, taking your

There is not much time scheduled to arrive, check-in, and snap some pictures and videos before it’s

The entire arena will be open for their enjoyment. There are multiple concessions and bar locations open from
