Earning your online degree marks an important turning point in your life. At Walden, we celebrate this remarkable milestone for our graduates and their family and friends with a special commencement ceremony held twice a year. We encourage our graduates to take this moment to celebrate their many accomplishments with those most important in their lives, as well as faculty members, staff members, and fellow classmates who have had an influence in their online education.
Experience the excitement of a Walden commencement and envision yourself on stage at a future ceremony.
