College of Arts & Sciences Commissioning Ceremony 2021


Date & Time: Friday, May 7, 2021, 2:30 p.m.

Congratulations! We are excited that you have joined us for the virtual Commissioning Ceremony.

Commissioning is a sacred service dedicated to prayer. Commissioning means “to grant authority,” “to entrust,” or “to appoint or assign a task or function.” This special ceremony commissions our graduates to take their training into the world and make a difference for Christ.

The virtual service that will be streamed on this page will prayerfully commission you to serve the world as a Christian leader in your chosen field. The schedule includes:

  • Opening Prayer and Welcome
  • Address from the Dean
  • Student Tribute
  • Academic Award Recipients
  • Congratulatory remarks from our Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riano
  • A commissioning address from our Founder and Chancellor, Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson
  • Closing and Prayer


All undergraduate students receiving an associate or a bachelor’s degree, except for students in Healthcare and Nursing, will participate in the CAS Commissioning. Students graduating in Healthcare and Nursing will attend the College of Healthcare Sciences and School of Nursing Commissioning. These candidates have received official notification from the Registrar’s Office granting approval.

Your friends and family are encouraged to join you for the virtual ceremony. Please return to this page to view the streamed event.

Great question! Yes!! We would love for you to return to this page after the event to rewatch it. Be sure to share the link with all your fans.

Please note: Graduates do not need to RSVP for the 2021 CAS Commissioning Ceremony or for Commencement. Instead, please return to this page to join us for our virtual Commissioning service. We look forward to praying for and celebrating you.

Commencement 2021 is scheduled for Saturday, May 8, 2021. In order to protect the health and well-being of our students and all in attendance, Regent University has moved its Commencement ceremony to a virtual format. The ceremony will be streamed so that graduates, friends, and families can participate from all over the world.
