Apply as a Transfer Student

A student is considered a transfer when he/she has completed any coursework at a regionally accredited college or university after graduating from high school. A list of regional accrediting bodies can be found here. Students who have only earned credit from non-regionally accredited colleges, vocational programs, and/or the military should apply as a freshman.

Applications for admission to Belmont are considered on a rolling basis, so early submission of an application is strongly encouraged. Applicants will be notified of a decision within a few weeks of completing the application. 

Here’s a checklist of what you’ll need – just let us know if you have any questions.
