If you do not live near Western Seminary's campus, you may have difficulty with some things related to graduation. For example, you may not be able to come to campus to purchase announcements or banquet tickets. Even though we'll be instructing students to come to campus for these items, we do not want to exclude students who are unable to make the trip to Portland. If you need special assistance due to living a long distance from campus, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle Workman.
