Financial Information

Before issuing your immigration documents, we would need to see financial documents that show your ability to cover the costs of attending Belmont University. The most current information about the cost of tuition, room, and board can be found at Student Financial Services. Both our international and domestic students are charged the same tuition.

Here at Belmont University, we embrace our international students and the unique perspective they contribute to our community. In order to encourage and accommodate international applicants, Belmont University wants to connect you with ways to help pay for your education. These opportunities include the following:
