Wenatchee Valley College announced commencement ceremonies for both campuses will take place online this year due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The virtual graduation ceremonies will feature students and speakers as well as photos and videos. WVC will be using Zoom as the platform for the ceremonies. Students set to graduate in 2020 are also invited to walk at the in person ceremony in 2021.

Associate dean of campus life, equity and inclusion, Erin Tofte, stated in a press release: "This decision wasn’t easy, but it comes from a place of concern for the safety of our students, their families and the community at large. We are so proud of all of your hard work and perseverance, and we intend to celebrate it."
