2022 Commencement FAQ

Q. Are guests allowed at Commencement? 

Pre-registered guests will be permitted to attend the Commencement ceremony. Guests must arrive with their student unless arrangements have been made in advance with the Office of Student Life.

Q. What COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place?  

The safety of graduates and guests is our top priority. NUNM will continue to monitor local and state requirements. All staff, faculty, students and guests are required to wear a mask (surgical, N95 or KN95) at all times, as well as provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test (PCR within 72 hours or antigen test within 24 hours of the event).

Need same-day testing?

NUNM is working with Curative ( to offer a testing site in front of the Oregon Convention Center the day before and the day of the ceremony. Additionally, Curative has testing sites throughout the city with appointment times.  

Curative offers rapid PCR tests with a two-hour turnaround time and rapid antigen tests with a 30-minute turnaround time. Guests should arrive no later than 2 pm so as not to be delayed for the ceremony.

Testing is either billed through insurance or is free. Please bring a copy of your insurance card if you have one.
