Celebrating Our Graduates


Buena Vista University's commencement ceremonies are a wonderful time to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates.

This winter, BVU will reassess options for an in-person Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020. Graduates will be notified of new plans, which will also be posted here.
