About Your Ceremony

While it was Belmont’s sincere intention to hold in person commencement ceremonies August 7 for our August and May 2020 graduates, the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic is once again changing our plans. As cases are surging in Nashville, Mayor John Cooper has wisely reverted the city back to Phase 2 of the safe reopening plan, which restricts in person gatherings to no more than 25 people. These circumstances have led us to determine that holding an in-person event of this scale is just not possible at this time. In the interest of everyone’s continued health and safety, we must cancel our August 7 in-person commencement plans.

We were able to celebrate our May graduates two months ago with a virtual celebration and we are now planning ways to come together virtually to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of our August graduates. Graduates, please be watching your email as more details on that event will be announced soon.
