Twice a year, WGU holds in-person national commencement ceremonies. These ceremonies are a great opportunity for WGU graduates to celebrate their achievement with their families, their mentors—and each other. To get a taste of what a WGU commencement ceremony is like, visit our YouTube channel.
“As a recent graduate, I cannot encourage you enough to attend one of the WGU commencement weekends. I honestly felt like a bride on her wedding day. Every staff member congratulated me and asked questions about my journey. It was one of the best weekends of my life! My sweet family was there to celebrate with me, but I had not expected the school to be so actively celebrating with me as well.”
– Amanda Lieble
