All graduating students and their families are invited to a Texas BBQ picnic on the DTS-Dallas campus. This event is a fun opportunity for graduates and their families to visit with the faculty.
Meal tickets are $5 per person (ages 5 and under are free). Tickets for the BBQ are available for purchase online through the DTS Bookstore. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
Childcare is available only during the Commencement Ceremony. Reservations are required. More information regarding reservations for childcare coming soon.

Tendremos una mesa donde podrá recoger un dispositivo para escuchar la ceremonia de graduación traducida en español. Cuando vaya a recoger el dispositivo le pediremos que nos deje un documento de identificación para garantizar su devolución. Se le pedirá su licencia de conducir o una tarjeta de crédito como garantía.
Estamos en el proceso de crear una lista para asegurarnos de tener suficientes dispositivos ya que tenemos un número limitado. Por lo tanto, si usted va a necesitar alguno, le pedimos que confirme aquí ANTES del 30 de abril.
We have a limited number of channels available for attendees needing Mandarin translation for the Commencement Ceremony. Priority will be given to the graduates and their family members. If you need translation in Mandarin, please sign up here BEFORE April 30th. After receiving confirmation that you have reserved a translation receiver, please arrive at the Welcome Center no later than 9:00am to check out the receiver. A driver’s license is required as a deposit.
For many years, the graduating class has collected money as a gift for the benefit of future students at DTS.
The 2023 graduating class has the opportunity to “pay it forward” to students still in the process of completing their seminary training by contributing to a new graduating class scholarship fund.
Donate to the graduating class scholarship fund and participate in the training and equipping of the next class of ministry leaders.
