A Message from the President:

Dear Graduates,

I hope this finds you well and you are enjoying your new journey since graduating from WVNCC. I am happy to report that we are moving forward with an in-person Commencement, albeit slightly different than others who have preceded you.

I am excited to announce we will be hosting our first-ever outdoor Commencement for the classes of 2020 and 2021 on Friday, May 14, at 7 p.m. at Wheeling Island Stadium. Our Commencement Committee has been working tirelessly to be able to deliver on our promise to you of hosting an in person ceremony. We will be sending out additional details in the coming weeks, and it will be important that you continue to check your WVNCC email account.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. You have possessed a strong spirit of adaptability and resilience that I am sure will serve you well in your personal and professional lives. I look forward to celebrating with you and all of our graduates on May 14, 2021.

Dr. Daniel Mosser
President West Virginia Northern Community College

2020 Commencement Tribute Video

Due to COVID-19, we had to make the overwhelmingly difficult decision to postpone our 2020 Commencement until it is safe for people to gather again.

However, to commemorate May 15, 2020, we released a tribute video saluting the WVNCC Class of 2020!
