Financial Aid / Payment Options

 

Graduate business students have several payment options including:  scholarships, employer tuition assistance, installment payment plan programs, and/or student loans.  To determine eligibility requirements for student loans, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA (for previous Federal Aid applicants) and request that Belmont University receive a copy of the analysis. The FAFSA requires approximately six weeks for processing. You may file the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.  Additional information on payment options is as follows:

Scholarships  Applications for Massey scholarships are generally due by the application deadline of the student’s first term of study (spring, summer, or fall) and available in a downloadable form. Select “Prospective Students” followed by the “Tuition and Payment Options” link.  Each scholarship includes different eligibility requirements, including, but not limited to:

  • Academic excellence, including exceptional entrance scores (e.g., GMAT)
  • Strong professional experience exhibiting leadership potential
  • Involvement in civic/volunteer/church activities o High standards of integrity and    character
  • Strong recommendations from business/professional sources
  • Minority status
  • Demonstrated financial need

Employer Tuition Assistance

  • Employer Paying - If your employer will be paying your tuition directly to Belmont, Student Financial Services needs an employer authorization agreeing to Belmont's payment terms.
  • Employer Reimbursement is an agreement between you and your employer. If your employer will be reimbursing you after your courses are complete each semester, you are financially responsible to pay for courses before the semester begins. You can pay in cash or use loans to get started, then you can roll your reimbursement checks into the future semesters. Please call Student Financial Services for more information on this and a recommended strategy.

Installment Payment Plans  If you use your savings and/or current income to cover all or part of your education expenses, you can take advantage of the Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option offered through Tuition Management System (www.afford.com/Belmont). TMS takes your estimated educational expense and divides it into monthly payments. The cost is $55 per year and is only available for fall and spring semesters.

Paying With Student Loans  Graduate students who are U.S. citizens are eligible to apply for the Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan programs, which are awarded without regard to financial need.  Interest accrues from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full.  The maximum loan is $20,500 per academic year.  If you are using Stafford Loans to pay any portion of your tuition, you should complete  the FAFSA  at least six weeks before the beginning of classes.  International students are not eligible for U.S. government loans and should contact International Student Services at (615) 460-6342 for university policies regarding international students.
