Wake Tech's Fall graduation ceremonies are set for 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Saturday on Scott Northern Wake Campus. Family and friends unable to attend in person can watch the ceremonies live online.
Tuition is based on your residency status. Materials and supplies for studio-based classes range from $100 to $150 per class. Detailed supply lists will be included in each course syllabus posted in Blackboard and discussed on the first day of class.
