When & Where

The PLTS Service of Commencement is at 11:00am on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at St. John's Presbyterian Church, 2727 College Avenue, Berkeley, Calfornia.  A light reception will follow the service


Graduate regalia can be purchased through the Cal Lutheran Bookstore.  Graduates will select the Master's Package.  Once you have given customized information, you will then be asked to select the Major/Curriculum of Theology PLTS.  Certificate students should not order the hood, but instead should contact Student Affairs to order a sash.  TEEM graduates should contact Dr. Moses Penumaka about ordering process.  

Graduates are asked to notify the guests who will be helping place their sash or hood.  


Due to differing travel arrangements, a rehearsal prior to the day is not scheduled.  Graduates are asked to show up at 10:00am on the day of Commencement for a brief rehearsal on how to come forward, where to stand, and how to be sashed or hooded.  Rehearsal will be followed by group photographs at 10:15am.  At 10:45am, the graduation procession will line up in preparation for the service.

School representatives, faculty, and staff are requested to come in full academic and/or ecclesial regalia, and be present at 10:00am as well for photographs and to line up.  


More information will be coming soon.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Student Affairs.
