August Commencement Ceremony Moved to December

Dear Graduating Students and Families,

Commencement ceremonies are one of the most important times of your college experience. Our Bethel family always looks forward to watching our graduates cross the stage at this momentous occasion with their families present.

In regards to the August Commencement ceremony, the decision has been made to combine summer and winter ceremonies and hold one in December.

Although the August Commencement will not take place until December 2021, our University Registrar will still be conferring your degrees as you complete your studies.

We take great pride in our commencement traditions, and we don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to celebrate your accomplishments with family, friends, fellow students, faculty, and staff of the university.

We look forward to celebrating with you in December!

Thank you for your understanding,

President Walter Butler
