Diplomas for students whose coursework is complete will be available for pick up or mailing the week of May 18th. If you wish to have your diploma mailed, you must email the Registrar’s office ( the week of May 18th with your current mailing address.

To be clear, we will not automatically mail your diploma.

If you so desire, you may also leave your diploma at the Abbey and pick it up during Homecoming (October 2-4) when we hope to have a physical graduation ceremony.

At this time, we are planning to have a traditional in-person commencement ceremony over Homecoming weekend, October 2-4.

This is in the early planning process and details will be sent to you when final decisions have been made.

Due to delays created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Belmont Abbey College must postpone our ring ceremony. We will provide an update for our participating Class of 2020 as soon as possible.
