Commencement 2013–2014

North Park University is proud to award degrees at both December and May commencement ceremonies each academic year to graduates from from all undergraduate and graduate programs. We send these students off to many "next chapters" in their lives, from entering—or returning to—a full-time professional career, to continuing graduate education, to responding to a ministry call. Wherever they go, we wish our graduates well as they continue to pursue lives of significance and service. Congratulations, graduates!
