Congratulations to NAU’s Class of 2020!


Today is all about you. You’ve worked hard, devoting your time and attention to pursuing your degree and creating opportunities for yourself and your family. Your achievements deserve to be celebrated, even if we can’t do so in person.

After much consideration for student safety, NAU has decided to host a virtual commencement ceremony on June 5th in lieu of the in-person ceremony originally planned for Rapid City, South Dakota.

Faculty and staff of National American University’s (NAU) and it’s Henley-Putnam School of Strategic Security’s (H-PSSS) came together to recognize the class of 2020!



National American University and Henley-Putnam School of Strategic Security want to say “congrats” to the Class of 2020! We are so proud of you for persevering and completing your program. You have worked hard to accomplish your goals, and we feel honored to have been a part of your journey. Now it is time to look forward to your future with confidence and conviction, knowing that the knowledge and skillsets you have learned at National American University will help you shape your future. Congratulations on completing your degree!

Please enjoy the 2020 Commencement Ceremony.
