The University held a special “virtual” degree conferral for Spring 2020 ETBU graduates on Tuesday, May 19, at 10:00 a.m. The livestream event was available on all of ETBU’s social media accounts. Graduates also received a delivery of ETBU graduate gift boxes filled with regalia, and were encouraged to wear their cap and gown to take pictures commemorating their remarkable achievements of completing a bachelor’s or a master’s degree. All ETBU Tigers everywhere, including family and friends, were encouraged to wear Blue and Gold in their honor on May 19.
ETBU will also host “in-person” commencement ceremonies to worship the Lord and celebrate the accomplishments of ETBU students. The date for the Spring 2020 Commencement ceremonies is Saturday, June 13 at 10:00 a.m.
To further support graduating seniors and the current graduate program students, ETBU implemented a new discounted graduate tuition rate as we strive to make quality, Christian graduate education at ETBU as affordable and accessible as possible. ETBU reduced the graduate tuition rate by 50% to $366 per credit hour and expanded degree program offerings in order to meet the increased needs for higher education in the East Texas region.
A number of the graduating seniors who are spring season student-athletes have received another year of athletic eligibility. For graduating student-athletes and graduate program student-athletes who desire to play another spring season in 2021, this new tuition rate will help them and their family as they pursue their master’s degree plans and their last year of athletic competition at ETBU.
