Ashley shared photos of her wearing three different outfits over the weekend, but all of them included her salmon-colored graduation cap.

In the first, she wore a black minidress and threw confetti in the air.

The second saw the smiling star in a school girl-type outfit made up of a black pleated skirt and knee-high socks, with a plaid vest over a crisp white shirt.

Ashley scattered around some more confetti in the third photo, while wearing black pants and a white ruffle top.

In the caption, she announced: “Wanna be ASSOCIATES!!! #graduated #associatesofscience”

She previously completed a medical assistant program, which was documented during her time on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant.

In the graduation episode, Ashley’s teacher told her how she was setting a “great example” for her 3-year-old daughter, Holly, who she shares with fiance Bar Smith.

"With a baby, I managed to shake some a** and get some straight As and raise a brilliant daughter," the reality star said of finishing the program. "I'm very proud of myself." 

Now, she’s earned an “associates of science,” following in the footsteps of Teen Mom Kailyn Lowry, who's also graduated from college, and she’s even prouder of herself, as are her friends and fans. 

One follower commented: “Yasss yasss yassssssssssss congrats boo🙌🙌”

Another wrote: “Congratulations! Thats amazing 👏👏”

Others told her, “You’re amazing,” and “Hard work pays off!”
