Graduation will be live-streamed right here at our ceremony site, calling together all of your classmates around the globe for a common celebration of your growth as ‘experts in the Bible’ and thanksgiving to the Lord for his provision, especially during these pandemic-conditioned years of your degree. Join us for prayer and song, addresses given by honorary doctorate recipients, and to celebrate the faithfulness of the Lord in sustaining these students to completion of their degrees.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I invite people to view the ceremony virtually?
To invite widely, share this public link: events.wts.edu/graduation. It’s open for anyone to view the ceremony, but it is a reduced site that excludes student information.
You will receive an email with a personal link to the full graduation website. Share your personal link only with people you trust, since it displays our student pictures, locations, and bios.
What student data security measures are in place?
A website with student names and bios can be too much information, especially for some students who live and serve in sensitive locations globally. Here's what we're doing to keep your information safe. First, we will not share anything you do not want us to, and so we’ve let you tell us what information to exclude from the site as well as the ceremony. If you have any concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org right away. Second, we are providing each of our graduates an individualized link to the ceremony, so that you can share the full graduation site (with student bios) with just your friends and family. Third, all student information will be deleted from the website and wiped completely from the site’s server in the week following graduation.
What health safety measures are in place during on-campus events?
Westminster follows CDC and local health official guidelines. We ask that guests and grads use wisdom and discernment in protecting the health of others.
Is there a limit to how many guests I can bring?
There is no limit to the number of guests you can bring. Seats under the tent are provided first-come, first-served and overflow seating will be available livestreaming in the ceremony in Rust Auditorium.
Will my name be called during the ceremony?
Yes! Everyone will have their names called either as they either walk across the stage or have their picture and name displayed on-screen (unless you have told us not to do that for security measures).
