In alignment with a more traditional
commencement schedule, Kaplan University will hold one graduation
ceremony for the 2015 academic year rather than two. It will be held
on June 6, 2015, at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago, IL. As a result, a
graduation ceremony will not be held in South Florida in
January/February of 2015.
* Future terms not listed above will be eligible for the next scheduled ceremony. Future ceremony dates will be posted on this page once they are scheduled.
