Announcement

Each college will host a virtual ceremony for their graduates during Commencement Week 2021 – May 17-21, 2021. We encourage our graduates to invite as many guests as they wish to view the ceremony and celebrate in their accomplishments in real time. Graduates will have the opportunity to participate in full regalia, take their oath (if applicable), share in the joy of family hooding with their loved ones and partake in other important historical traditions of a WesternU commencement ceremony. As soon as it is available, we will be adding the links to each ceremony below.
