    New for 2015 

    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.
