Your cap, gown, hood, and tassel are being sent to the Seattle Campus.  When they arrive, I will email you with instructions and a deadline by which to pick your regalia.  There is no charge for regalia and it will be yours to keep!


$3 parking can be found the public garages: 321 Terry Ave. North or 320 Westlake Ave. North.  Both garages can be accessed from the alley entrance off Harrison Street between Terry Ave. North and Westlake Ave. North.

Extra Notes:

  • The ceremony will last about two hours.
  • Guest seating is first-come; first-serve. 
  • All graduates will sit in designated seats with your College.
  • Please remind your guests that tickets are required; they can bring a physical copy or show us their scannable ticket (which requires the Eventbrite mobile app to access).
  • Graduates are not permitted to 'toss' their cap; the technology hanging from the ceiling is low-hanging and fragile. 
  • Remember that your shoes and ankles will show below your regalia.  Jeans are not recommended. 
  • We will have a professional photographer; all pictures will be available for students to download free of charge, including an individual photo of each graduate crossing the stage.
  • You will not be receiving your diploma at the Seattle Campus graduation.  Northeastern will mail it to your address on file in an official diploma cover.
