Belmont Online Study Abroad Application Process: Semester/Year Programs
The Belmont application is required for all Belmont students who wish to participate in a study abroad program. Students wishing to participate in a program with one of Belmont’s affiliates, exchange partners, direct enroll institutions or with CCSA, a study abroad consortium of which Belmont is the host institution, will also need to complete an application process for that program. You may complete these applications concurrently if you wish.

External Program Approval Form: Often study abroad program applications through our Affiliate/Exchange/Direct Enroll program applications include a section or a form that requires a Belmont study abroad advisor's signature. We recommend that you meet with a member of the Study Abroad staff at least once before you request that this form be filled out.
Belmont only requires one recommendation from a Belmont faculty member who has taught you recently. You will need to email your professor with the following link after you have first confirmed that the professor is willing to provide you with a recommendation: recommendation form. Your professor can submit the form online.
For tips on requesting a recommendation, please see this handout.
