MAY 7, 2021, AT 10 A.M.

Dordt is planning an in-person commencement ceremony Friday, May 7. We will also Livestream the ceremony so that guests, both on-campus, and from afar, are able to celebrate with the graduates.

Graduates will receive four tickets for Commencement. At this time, we cannot specifically say where guests will be seated. We hope to have as close to a traditional commencement as possible, but much depends on the state of events between now and May 7. We will continue to update graduates and their parents as we know more details.

We will have overflow seating areas on campus, which will also be ticketed.


The Alumni Association hosts graduates and their families at a luncheon reception immediately following the Commencement ceremony.

Additional information

As a memento of this important occasion, the Alumni Office arranges for graduates to be photographed by a photographer as they receive their diplomas. A digital version of the photo will be emailed to the graduate following Commencement.

The Dordt Campus Store sells diploma frames, which you can order at If you'd like to save on shipping costs, you can select "In-Store Pickup" at checkout and you will be able to pick up your frame at the Campus Store when you arrive. Frames are also available for purchase in the Campus Store. If you have questions on diploma frames, please contact the Campus Store at 712-722-6420 or Lora DeVries at 712-722-6422.
