Application Process

Belmont Online Study Abroad Application Process: Summer Provider 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 summer program with one of Belmont’s Program Providers (Arcadia, CEA, CIEE, etc.) will also need to complete an application process for that program, including providing a transcript of your college work to that provider.  You may complete these applications concurrently if you wish. 

Online Material Submissions

Application Form: Complete the Summer Provider Application form

Medical Form: Complete the online Medical Information form with your relevant emergency contact, current medications and medical conditions.   

Passport Copy: Scan and email a copy of your passport to the Office of Study Abroad.  If you do not currently have a passport, please apply for one immediately and notify the Office of Study Abroad (OSA) via email that you have applied.  Click here for more information about passports and visas. 

Signature Documents

Statement of Agreement: This is your acknowledgement of awareness of Belmont study abroad policies and procedures. Review the Statement of Agreement, sign electronically and submit online. 

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.
