This may be viewed as one of the pitfalls of attending online school versus pursuing your degree at a traditional "brick and mortar" institution. In most cases, students enrolled at online schools are scattered across the country, and possibly around the world. It would be no small feat to collect these students into one building at the same time in order to have a traditional graduation ceremony. Not to mention, it would be extremely expensive for students to travel to the home base of the online school in order to participate. It is for this reason that the typical answer for this question is no, those students who are pursuing online degrees do not usually have the opportunity to participate in a traditional graduation ceremony. Traditionally, degrees are mailed to students upon completion of the program, often with a congratulatory letter. Brad at www.elearners.com
