Graduation Events

Graduation 2020

Virtual commencement exercises planned

Evangel President Carol A. Taylor, Ph.D., announced that commencement 2020 has been rescheduled to a virtual commencement at 11 a.m.  Saturday, August 15, 2020. See the video above for Dr. Taylor’s announcement. 

The 62nd Annual Commencement for Evangel, which had been scheduled to be in person, will now be held virtually due to public health considerations. The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary will celebrate its 47th Annual Commencement as a part of the same ceremony.

EU alum and Emmy Award-winning journalist Steve Grant will be the commencement speaker. He was awarded the 2010 Distinguished Alumnus Award and is on the Communications Department’s Wall of Honor.

Graduates who planned to participate in the in-person commencement will receive their academic regalia, including any cords and a diploma cover, in the mail. Graduates are encouraged to take a photo in their regalia and send them to before August 1 for inclusion in the virtual ceremony.

Baccalaureate activities and a picnic celebration have been canceled due to public health considerations. The university is planning an in-person celebration for 2020 graduates in May 2021. All 2020 graduates are invited to participate in the May 2021 commencement.

The change is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Read more here.
