Belmont is excited to provide that opportunity to graduates and their families at an August 7 commencement ceremony. Graduates are asked to complete the August RSVP form by July 1 to indicate whether or not they will be able to attend one of the August ceremonies. May graduates will participate in the August graduation ceremony with their respective college as assigned at either 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. as indicated by the RSVP form.

Belmont began mailing diplomas and honor cords directly to the graduates beginning on May 4. Caps, gowns and tassels will also be mailed in mid-May. The University encourages graduates to send in photos wearing their caps and gowns to or to use the hashtag #BelmontGrad20 on Instagram or Twitter in order for Belmont to celebrate their achievements on social media platforms.
