Distance Education

This event is for U.S. Naval War College students, spouses, partners, significant others, faculty and staff.

On Tuesday, June 30, students from the College of Distance Education, U.S. Naval War College (NWC) will participate in a virtual graduation ceremony with a keynote speech by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.

Please join us for a YouTube watch party of our graduation ceremony, with live comments from Rear Adm. Shoshana Chatfield, Naval War College president. Tune in at 2:45 a.m. EDT on NWC's YouTube channel.

Established in 1884, NWC is the oldest institution of its kind in the world. More than 50,000 students have graduated since its first class of nine students in 1885 and about 300 of today’s active duty admirals, generals and senior executive service leaders are alumni. Since creating a program for international officers in 1956, the college has more than 4,500 international alumni from 137 countries worldwide. Approximately 10 percent of these alumni have gone on to become chief of their country’s respective navy.

To best support the military services and military student population, the resident Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) curriculum is taught so students can report at the beginning of any of the three trimesters to complete the curriculum. NWC graduation ceremonies are held three times a year in March, November and June.
