Convocation and Assembly

Convocation and Campus Assembly

The College plans several events each year for students, faculty, and staff to worship and gather together. College offices are closed so that College faculty, staff, and administration may also attend.


Convocations gather the entire campus community at the Kettering Adventist Church across the street from the campus for a ceremony that includes academic pageantry. This event happens at the beginning of fall and winter semesters to start the school year. Attendance is mandatory for all students. Online students are invited, but not required to attend. Clinical schedules are adjusted so that everyone can attend. Convocations are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m.

  • Fall 2018 Convocation will be held on August 31, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m.
  • Winter 2019 Convocation will be held on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m.

NOTE: There is a $25.00 charge for not attending Convocation if you are required to attend. If you need to be exempt for special reasons, please see the office of Academic Affairs and fill out this exemption form.


Assembly exists to celebrate our school family and rally around our identity as a faith-based institution. It’s a time for playing, growing, worshipping, and learning as a school desiring to experience the life that Jesus has in mind for us. Attendance is mandatory for all students. Online students are invited, but not required to attend.

Assembly takes place 6 times during the year and is always the first Friday of the month from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. This event takes place at the Kettering Adventist Church.  Here are the dates for this school year:

October 5, 2018
November 2, 2018
December 7, 2018
February 1, 2019
March 1, 2019

Note: Assembly occurs each month during the fall and winter semesters. If an exemption is needed because of a conflict in schedule, please submit the exemption form to the office of the Dean of Student Success. 

Examples of exemptions include:
