About NC State’s 2022 Commencement
This December, NC State awarded 3,653 degrees during the fall commencement ceremony, up from about 3,400 fall graduates in 2021. The graduates came to NC State from 56 countries and 37 U.S. states, and they range in age from 19 to 67.
The fall 2022 graduating class also includes 441 first-generation college graduates. For these graduating students, their achievement carries special significance — not just for them, but for their families as well.
NC State is graduating more students each year than at any time in the university’s history — all while boasting a six-year graduation rate that’s 21 percentage points higher than the national average.
Congratulations to all of NC State’s summer and fall 2022 graduates!
