While the celebration is virtual, your accomplishments are real!

We look forward to honoring your achievement on June 8, 2021 at 5:00 pm at the 2021 WLAC Virtual Graduation Ceremony. The ceremony can be viewed on this web page, via Facebook or YouTube at, or after, 5:00pm on June 8, 2021. The ceremony runs approximately 2.5 hours.

Why is the ceremony virtual? All nine of the LACCD campuses will again hold a virtual ceremony instead of an in-person commencement (graduation) to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
