Application Check List


Degree Seeking Application

Complete the entire Degree Seeking Application thoroughly and submit the non-refundable application fee of $50. You can apply using the following methods: 


Please note: the Common Application organization continues to complete its technology upgrade.  Though some forms have been delayed in reaching the Admissions Office, the University is working with Common Application office to ensure that all forms submitted are received. 

Belmont offers a second online application option: a Belmont-specific application for admission.  This option is working well and is unaffected by the Common Application technology upgrade. 


Personal Supplement

Complete the Personal Supplement and attach your answers to the Essay Questions and your Resumé of Activities. Be sure to include your full name, address and birthday on each page.

Official Transcripts

Request that official transcripts be sent from the high school directly to the Office of Admissions. For a transcript to be official, it may not be marked “Issued to Student”. A nursing applicant must be a licensed registered nurse or have a previous bachelor’s degree to be exempt from this requirement.

Test Scores

Request that official SAT-1 or ACT score reports be sent directly to Belmont. (Belmont’s ACT code is 3946 and the SAT code is 1058). Belmont does not consider Writing test scores from either the SAT or ACT. Test scores will be accepted as official if submitted on an official high school transcript. A nursing applicant must be a licensed registered nurse or have a previous bachelor’s degree to be exempt from this requirement.

Counselor Recommendation

Provide the Counselor Recommendation to the appropriate person in your guidance office and have him or her send the completed recommendation directly to Belmont. Homeschooled students can submit one Personal Recommendation letter from someone other than a family member to replace the Counselor Recommendation.
