Graduation Wrap Up Sessions
Attending a Graduation Wrap Up Session is a requirement for all WJC Students preparing to graduate. During this session, you will meet with various departments to make sure all necessary paperwork is completed prior to graduation.
There will be five Graduation Wrap Up Sessions. They will be held Monday thru Friday, April 22-26, 2019 from 12:00-1:00 PM each day in the Student Services Department on the first floor.
Attending one of the on-campus sessions is the most efficient way to complete the paperwork needed for graduation. If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled sessions, you must be in touch with each of the following student services centers prior to April 22, 2019.
