Walden University Summer Commencement

The health and well-being of the Walden community is of the utmost importance. To protect all our graduates and their guests, as well as Walden faculty and staff, we've made the difficult decision to transition from an in-person summer graduation ceremony to a special online celebration, honoring our graduates' milestone achievement. This graduating class is also invited to attend a future in-person commencement ceremony. Learn more about Walden's Summer 2020 Commencement.
