How much does Belmont cost?
Several factors, including the number of courses taken and a student’s eligibility
for various forms of financial aid, have a direct impact on the amount an individual
Belmont charges by the credit hour. In order to receive a net cost
of attendance, students must first file a current year Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA).
How does a student qualify for financial aid?
The process begins with filing the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.ed.gov. You will
need to provide Belmont College’s school code (009941). After the form is processed,
Belmont will provide the student with a Financial Aid Award Letter, which will detail
the different types and amounts of aid available.

Belmont provides career and education consultation to help students find rewarding
careers. This includes investigating personal preferences, salaries, and job
availability and then linking these factors with appropriate educational goals.
Is there an entrance exam?
Any degree-seeking student that has not previously attended college must provide
placement test scores to help provide proper academic placement. Belmont recommends
that any college-bound student takes an ACT test, but if this is not an option,
we offer the Accuplacer test. Please call the Recruitment department for details.
