BELMONT UNIVERSITY VA BENEFIT PAYMENT POLICY
GI Bill benefits may be impacted as a result of the following:
• As determined by the VA, a benefit amount issued to Belmont or the student may be prorated based on the effective date of the educational benefit. Also, the benefit amount may change as a result of the eligibility expiration (delimiting date).
• Refunds for account credits or overpayments may be issued to the student in accordance to Belmont University’s and the Department of Veteran Affairs’ refund policies. The Department of Veteran Affairs will send correspondence to the student if an overpayment results as a debt owed by the student to the VA.
• The student is liable for any outstanding tuition and fee costs not covered by Post-9/11 GI Bill or Yellow Ribbon benefits.

Questions About Financial Aid
•Contact Belmont’s Student Financial Services Office (SFS) at 615-460-6403 or visit the web site at www.belmont.edu/sfs. Counselors can assist you with information about grants, loans, and other payment options. To file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. Belmont University’s Title IV Code is 003479. Do this early! You should begin the process even if you haven’t submitted all of your admission materials.
• Students must file a FAFSA each academic year to be considered for institutional aid and federal assistance.
• If the student is unable to pay the total balance due (after guaranteed financial aid), the student may join an interest-free monthly payment program with Tuition Management Services (TMS). You may enroll online at http://www.afford.com/belmont or call 1-800-722-4867.
• Students who register during final registration and not during priority (early) registration must be prepared to select a payment plan and make an initial payment at the time of registration.
• All student charges must be settled by the published payment deadline each term or session. It is the student’s responsibility to make the payment even if a statement has not been received.
• If a student has any financial obligation to Belmont, the student will not be allowed to register for any subsequent semester or reserve housing until the account is paid in full. Belmont reserves the right to withhold the diploma and official transcript from students with delinquent accounts.
