Apply to Graduate

NIC students from 2020/21 & 2019/20 academic years - it's time to celebrate with regalia & pictures to mark your academic milestone.

Registration is required to order your regalia and for NIC to schedule your graduation photos. Regalia will be picked up at your selected campus on Monday, June 7; graduation photographs will be scheduled on campus between June 8-11. NIC will confirm the details related to the pick and the photographs with students in advance.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at each campus for the regalia pick up and for the photographs. Students will keep their graduation regalia. Those with their own traditional regalia are encouraged to be photographed in that for graduation.

Too far to travel to a campus? NIC can send you your regalia for your own pictures. Please select the option to have your regalia mailed when registering; there is an additional charge for postage.

NIC's Virtual Graduation will launch July 8, 2021. Graduating student names will be listed. Photos of NIC students in their regalia, using photos taken June 8-11, and those submitted electronically by Friday, June 18, will be included. Registration deadline for photos: April 30, 2021.
