2021 Commencement Ceremonies

As more and more Virginians are vaccinated each day and COVID-19 case numbers trend downward, it is Virginia Wesleyan University's sincerest hope and belief that come spring the Commonwealth of Virginia will be allowing larger gatherings. For that reason, the University has every intention of holding in-person Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2021. Please note the following information is subject to change based on state regulations for COVID-19.
