Winter Commencement Canceled Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Ceremony Will be Combined with Spring Commencement Set for June 5, 2021

Bellevue University’s Winter commencement ceremony scheduled for Jan. 30, 2021, has been cancel/canceled due to the pandemic.

Graduating students are encouraged to participate in the university’s Spring commencement ceremony set for June 5, 2021.

Bellevue University President Mary Hawkins explained that the venue for commencement is in the state of Iowa, just about 20 minutes from the main university campus in Bellevue, Nebraska. Currently, Iowa has a ban on mass gatherings of more than 15 people.

“Because of the continued rise in cases and not knowing what Iowa government restrictions/directives will be in place in January, our University leadership has made the decision to cancel/postpone our Winter commencement and combine it with our June 5, 2021 ceremony,” said Dr. Hawkins.

Students may register to participate in June 2021 or a future ceremony. For more information, please review the online Commencement Guide at https://www.bellevue.edu/student-support/graduation/graduation or contact the Bellevue University Commencement team at commencement@bellevue.edu.
