Military & Veterans Student Aid
In addition to the VA Benefits you are eligible to receive, Belmont distributes comprehensive aid packages made up of a combination of need-based and merit-based aid. To be eligible to receive any form of need-based aid from Belmont University, you must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1, at the earliest, prior to the year in which you plan to enroll.
How do I apply for financial aid?
Fill out and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can complete the FAFSA online. The priority date for completion of the FAFSA is March 1 each year. Be sure to indicate Belmont's Title IV code on your application -- 003479 -- to ensure that our Office of Student Financial Services receives your application results.
You should receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) after completing your FAFSA. The SAR is typically sent in an email from the Department of Education. Review the SAR for accuracy and follow any instructions on the report. If your SAR is incorrect, please make the corrections and submit an updated FAFSA. Belmont will receive an electronic version from the federal processor.
If you have been selected for verification, there will be an asterisk next to your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) on your SAR. You will also receive an email from Belmont explaining the required next steps to complete the process using the Dynamic Forms document portal.

Upon admission to Belmont, you are automatically considered for all sources of merit aid. However, some departmental scholarships and grants may require a separate application. Your FAFSA application will also be used to determine eligibility for any institutional need-based aid outside of federal grants and loans.
Belmont's Office of Student Financial Services begins reviewing FAFSAs as soon as possible after February 1. Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial aid notifications are emailed to students as awards are completed.
Once the Office of Student Financial Services has reviewed your FAFSA application for financial assistance, you will receive a financial aid notification.
- Review your financial aid notification carefully and retain it for your records. Included is important information regarding financial aid policies, procedures and requirements necessary to accept, maintain and renew your assistance.
- Review the cost estimator worksheet on our website for financial planning purposes.
- Familiarize yourself with the information to avoid unexpected changes in your financial aid award.
Processed financial aid will apply directly to your student account. Financial aid offers are based on full-time enrollment. Any reduction in the total number of registered hours may result in an adjustment to the financial aid offer. Institutional scholarships are based on full-time enrollment (a minimum of 12 hours per semester). Full-time enrollment is 12 hours for undergraduate students and six hours for graduate students. Students must also be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to receive financial aid.
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.
- Contact Belmont’s Student Financial Services Office (SFS) at 615-460-6403. Counselors can assist you with information about grants, loans, and other payment options.
- 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 NelNet. Click HERE to learn more
- 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.
