Apply as a Transfer/Second Degree Student

Why Belmont?

No. 1 Transfer Destination among private colleges in Tennessee

At Belmont, we are a community dedicated to giving you the academic experiences and educational opportunities to prepare you for your future. In transferring to our campus in the heart of Nashville, you will join students from every state and countries around the world while finding your fit in one of more than 127 undergraduate programs of study.

Entering as a transfer means you have completed or attempted coursework at a regionally accredited institution after graduating from high school. Students whom have only earned credit from a non-nationally accredited college and/or the military should apply as a freshman.
