Why apply for graduation?

All NLC graduates receive:

  • Your official NLC printed credentials (parchment)
  • Your graduation noted on your official NLC transcript
  • Your invitation to attend Convocation ceremonies to celebrate your achievements, walk across the stage in cap and gown, and receive your official credentials officially issued to you.

Your official printed credentials

All students who meet graduation requirements will receive one official NLC parchment. Professional certificate frames are available for purchase from our NLC Bookstore or online here.

If you would like to order an official reprint of your parchment, please fill out the Duplicate/Replacement Parchment Request.

Duplicate parchments are only issued for students who have successfully graduated from an NLC program and have previously been issued a parchment. Official re-prints look almost exactly like an original parchment, with a notation that says “Duplicate of original issued in month/year” in small print along the bottom front.

Note: Northern Lights College reserves the right to withhold official records (including parchments) for students in arrears or with outstanding books or tools.
