Join us online on Saturday, May 30 at 10:00 am for Dallas Theological Seminary’s Virtual Commencement Ceremony.
We hope this virtual graduation will provide our graduates with an opportunity to celebrate their academic achievements in a timely manner. Along with the decision to have an online celebration, the seminary has invited the 2020 graduating class to participate in the 2021 May Commencement exercises.
Located less than a quarter of a mile from the heart of campus, the brand new Element Hotel (Downtown East) is a convenient place for friends and family of graduates to stay.
For a special DTS discounted rate:
Graduates should arrive in advance of the ceremony according to the instructions for graduates available on the Student Portal.
A come-and-go, casual dinner will be served to all graduating students with their families and friends on the DTS campus. The BBQ picnic is designed to give graduates and their families an opportunity to visit with one another and meet the faculty and staff.
More information regarding the purchase of BBQ tickets coming soon.
Childcare is available only during the Commencement Ceremony. Reservations are required. More information regarding reservations for childcare coming soon.
Translation services will be provided for the commencement ceremony held at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin) only. Please see instructions below.
El día de la graduación, tendremos una mesa en la que 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.
Estamos en el proceso de crear una lista para asegurarnos de tener suficientes dispositivos. Por lo tanto, si usted va a necesitar alguno, le pedimos que envíe un correo electrónico a Marta Hernández a email@example.com con la cantidad que va a necesitar y los nombres de las personas que lo van a utilizar.
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 contact firstname.lastname@example.org 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 and/or credit card are required as deposit.

Each year, the graduating class collects money for a physical gift for the benefit of future students at DTS. Past graduating class gifts have included outdoor seating by Hope Coffee, outdoor seating by Walvoord Student Center, artwork in various buildings on campus, the large campus sign facing Live Oak, the “classic” campus sign on Swiss Avenue, TV monitors across campus, and trees/landscaping across campus.
While the commencement ceremony is not until May, DTS is monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are prayerfully planning for the commencement ceremony to take place in May, 2021.
