We want to recognize the accomplishments of all the graduates of American College of Education, including both those who will attend the Commencement Ceremony and those who are unable to join us.

American College of Education announces that it will hold its Winter 2013 Winter Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, February 16, at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

In honor of the school’s goal of providing affordable, accessible and relevant online degree programs, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer has proclaimed February 16, 2013, American College of Education Graduate Day.
