High School Students

If you are planning to attend Belmont College immediately following your high school graduation, please see our High School Students page for more information about resources and scholarship opportunities.


Adult Students


Belmont College offers many resources to support the academic pursuits of adult learners, including flexible scheduling with courses offered online, in the evening, and at three campus locations.  We also offer tutoring though our Student Success Center, and individualized counseling to ensure you are pursuing the career that is right for you.

We know that the thought of returning to a classroom after many years can be intimidating, so every new student completes placement testing to ensure the courses you take are at a level comfortable for you.  In some cases, Belmont College is able to offer college credit for previous work experience.

Students 50 years of age and older

If you are 50 years of age or older and are planning to attend college for the first time, Belmont College offers a Transition to College program especially for you.  This course is offered free of charge and is designed to ease you into the role of being a college student.  The course includes refreshers in math, reading and writing, an introduction to computers and an orientation to the College.  If you would like more information on the Transition to College course, contact Enrollment Services at 740.695.8516.

Prospective students 60 years of age and older, who are Ohio residents,  can take advantage of our Senior Citizens Scholarship, which will allow you to attend Belmont College tuition free.


International Students

If you are asking why you should begin your studies at Belmont, remember that a degree from a U.S. college or university is recognized throughout the world as a significant accomplishment.  In addition, the experience of living and studying abroad offers students valuable experience in an increasingly global society.  Studying abroad provides the opportunity for students to become globally competent citizens increasing their marketability anywhere in the world.

Belmont is also recognized by the U.S Department of Education and approved by the International Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) or SEVIS-approved.
