More than 3,700 students will receive their diplomas from Northern Arizona University this spring, with five ceremonies planned May 13 and 14 in Flagstaff and another in Yuma on May 13.

The Walkup Skydome is undergoing major remodeling—the first renovation since the structure was built in 1977—so spring’s ceremonies will take place in a large, temporary structure on south campus. Because the structure holds fewer people than the dome, tickets will be needed for guests, with each student receiving up to six. Ticket details can be found online.

Following is the spring commencement schedule:

  • 1 p.m. Friday, May 13: All students for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • 5 p.m. Friday, May 13: Bachelor’s students only for the colleges of Education and Arts and Letters
