Commencement is a momentous occasion when we at Covenant join our graduates and their families and friends in celebrating the accomplishments of these last years, thanking God for His grace and provision, and looking ahead to His purposes in the lives of our graduates. At Covenant, we earnestly believe that the One "who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."


Commencement will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center in downtown Chattanooga. Below you will find information on our upcoming commencement exercises and related events. We look forward to families and friends joining us for this celebration!
