UNCW Onslow Extension Site Graduates 2015

The 20th Annual Commanding General's Graduation Ceremony was held on Friday, May 29th, 2015 at 10.00am at the Base Theater, Camp Lejeune.

During the 2014-2015 academic year UNCW had 274 students graduate from the Onslow Extension Site. Onslow Extension students come from a range of backgrounds and each student has a unique story, wether they are active duty military, veterans, military spouses, or local residents.

We are pleased to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of our students who have worked so hard to complete their degree programs often while serving as an active-duty member of our United States Armed Forces, working full-time jobs and raising a family.
