Commencement Ceremony

Congratulations!  Commencement is an exciting time of year for faculty, staff and especially for students and their families. It is the culmination of all of the time and dedication put into earning a degree.

Students who are graduating this academic year - Fall 2017, Winter 2018 or Spring/Summer 2018 - have the opportunity to be a part of Davenport University's Commencement Ceremony, to be held on April 29, 2018 at 2:00 PM at the Van Andel Arena, located in downtown Grand Rapids.

A Graduation Application must be on file in the Registrar’s Office by February 1st for students who would like to receive information about participating in the ceremony.

Commencement participants are required to wear Davenport University approved cap and gown items.  These items can be purchased through www.duspirit.comPurchasing cap and gown items will sign a student up for participating in the ceremony.  If a student already has the approved items, they are still required to confirm attendance by emailing the Registrar's Office.
