Who Can Participate?
Any FNU graduate whose degree was officially conferred since the previous year's Commencement is invited to participate. Current FNU students whose degree has not yet been officially conferred must meet the following eligibility criteria:
DNP students - Have either successfully completed or be enrolled in all remaining required DNP courses the duration of the summer term.
MSN & PGC students - Have a final passing grade (not an IP) in MH/NM/NP/WH 715 posted to the transcript AND Have either successfully completed or be enrolled in MH/NM/NP/WH 716 for the duration of the summer term AND Have either successfully completed or be enrolled in MH/NM/NP/WH 717 for the duration of the summer term.
Students earning multiple degrees from FNU may choose to participate in the Commencement ceremony after each degree or wait and participate once after all degrees are earned.
The ceremony will take place in the Bluegrass Ballroom on Level Three of The Lexington Center located at 430 West Vine Street in beautiful downtown Lexington, KY.
It is recommended that event attendees use the High Street entrance and follow directional signs placed for FNU event guests.
