A Message From Betty Vandenbosch, PhD, President

Graduation 2016
Graduate Receives Diploma at the 2016 Commencement 

Congratulations, Kaplan University graduates! You did it! 

Celebrating with you at our graduation at the Rosemont Theatre just outside of Chicago was an honor. About 1,000 of you crossed the stage as your name was announced to mark the completion of your degree. It was wonderful to have your family and friends there with us.

And, more than 12,600 graduates were recognized for earning an associate's degree, a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or a doctoral degree or certificate from the Schools of Business and Information Technology, Education, Health Sciences, and Nursing; Open College; Concord Law School; and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
