Welcome to the Alumni Association,
Class of 2024!

Vanguard University celebrated its 102nd commencement on May 2, 2024. Family and friends of the 542 bachelor’s and master’s degree candidates filled the main sanctuary at Mariners Church in Irvine, celebrating the completion of an academic journey.

“I had the privilege of shaking the hands of 542 testimonies to the transformational power to a Vanguard education,” said Michael Beals, PhD, president of Vanguard University. “For a majority of the undergraduates, this was their first in-person graduation ceremony. The atmosphere of enthusiasm, accomplishment, and praise was clearly evident to all.”
