Financial Aid and Payment Options 

Massey Graduate School of Business students have several payment options including: scholarships, employer tuition assistance, installment payment plan programs and student loans. Read more about your options below.

Scholarships & Graduate Assistantships

  • Academic excellence, including exceptional standardized exam scores
  • Strong professional experience exhibiting leadership or leadership potential
  • Significant Involvement in civic/volunteer/church activities
  • Strong recommendations from business/professional sources
  • Minority status
  • Demonstrated financial need by completing the FAFSA.

Employer Tuition Assistance

Employer tuition assistance is an agreement between you and your employer. If your employer will be reimbursing you after your courses are complete each semester, you are financially responsible to pay for courses before the semester begins. You can pay in cash or use loans to get started, then you can roll your reimbursement checks into the future semesters. Please contact Student Financial Services at or 615-460-6403 for more information and a recommended strategy.

If your employer will pay your tuition directly to Belmont, Student Financial Services needs an employer authorization agreeing to Belmont's payment terms.

Further, if your employer offers any form of tuition assistance, the Massey School offers matching funds in spring and fall (up to four semesters total) through our Corporate Partners Program (CPP) for MBA programs. Visit that page for additional information.

Installment Payment Plans 

Belmont, in partnership with Nelnet, offers an interest-free payment plan to all current and admitted students to assist with the cost of attendance. Semester plans are available for $42 per term. The payment plan is not a loan, does not require a credit check, and does not incur interest charges. Payments are due on the 1st of each month and payments received after the 1st will incur a late fee of $40. Please click here for additional information. 

Paying With Student Loans 

Graduate students who are U.S. citizens are eligible to apply for the Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan programs, which are awarded without regard to financial need. Interest accrues from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full. The maximum loan is $20,500 per academic year. If you are using Stafford Loans to pay any portion of your tuition, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at least six weeks before classes begin.

To determine eligibility requirements for student loans, submit the FAFSA and request that Belmont University receive a copy of the analysis. The FAFSA requires approximately six weeks to process. You may file the FAFSA online at
