Safety Protocols and Guests
Belmont will continue to follow guidance from Governor DeWine’s office and safety protocols will be in place at each ceremony, including social distancing and facial coverings for all graduates and guests. Each graduate will be allowed to invite four guests to attend the evening of their ceremony. We are asking all students to RSVP their guest list to email@example.com by Tuesday, May 4, 2021. Please do not bring additional guests the day of graduation. If your guests’ names are not on the RSVP list, they will not be permitted to enter the building. When submitting your RSVP, please include your full name and the full names of each of your four guests. If special accommodations are required for you or your guest(s), please specify that when submitting your RSVP.
Day of Graduation Reminders
Upon arriving for commencement, each graduate and guest will be checked in before entering the building. All four guests will be seated together in pods of four in Dowler Hall for the ceremony. We are working to keep everyone as safe as possible, while still being able to celebrate our graduates, and appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Please note that only the names of graduates in attendance at the ceremony will be read aloud while crossing the stage. A full list of our 2020 and 2021 graduates will be listed in the commencement program and can also be found on our website at: www.belmontcollege.edu/graduation.
