Summer Orientation Dates

In light of the current realities regarding COVID-19, Belmont University continues to assess all programming decisions. Any Towering Traditions Orientation Program event changes will be communicated to all incoming students and families in advance. Thanks for your patience and flexibility as we continue to honor our commitment to the safety and well-being of students, staff, and faculty.

Summer Orientation is a required experience packed with information, community connections, and check-the-task-off the list opportunities! During Summer Orientation, students will register for their fall academic courses and complete other key steps to prepare for their Belmont journey. Summer Orientation also offers a parent/guest track designed specifically for Belmont parents and guardians.

As a reminder, students will only be able to participate and register for fall courses on the summer orientation session they have officially registered to attend. If you have questions about registering for your orientation session, please contact us at

In order to accommodate the needs of all students, we will be offering several 1-day on-campus sessions and several 1-day virtual sessions. In light of COVID-19, we will continue to assess if the on-campus events will move to a virtual format, and will communicate any changes to all event attendees. If we do move the on-campus sessions to a virtual format, your virtual orientation session will take place on the same date as the on-campus session you registered to attend.
