Regent University College of Arts & Sciences graduating student during a commissioning service.

College of Arts & Sciences Commissioning Ceremony 2020


Date & Time: Friday, May 8 | 7:30 p.m.

Congratulations! You have made it to graduation. We are excited that you have decided to join us for our virtual Commissioning service.

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:

  • A welcome
  • An address from the Dean
  • Academic award recipients
  • Congratulatory remarks from our Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño
  • A commissioning address from our Founder and Chancellor, Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson
  • Closing and prayer

Please note: Graduates do not need to RSVP for the 2020 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.

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.

CAS Commissioning will take place on Friday, May 8, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.

The Oak Hall website [] “ship to home” option was reactivated at 5 p.m. on April 23, 2020. Orders must be placed by May 20, 2020.

The ceremony will be streamed so that graduates, friends, and families can participate from all over the world.
