Graduate & Certificate Programs: Graduation & Degree Conferral

Graduation Home

Graduation (degree conferral) occurs when a student completes a degree program. Commencement is an optional ceremony, celebrating the graduation of Walden students twice a year. Students are not required to participate in commencement and applying for graduation is separate from applying for commencement.
