International Students & Scholars

New international students have mandatory International Student Orientation the week prior to Welcome Week. During this time, we will welcome you to campus and help acquaint you to life here at Belmont University. International Student Orientation includes key concepts to help you adjust to life in the US while maintaining your student immigration status. Other activities include tours of campus, a Welcome Luncheon with key administrators and faculty members, and seeing life off campus in Music City.

To enable you to attend International Student Orientation and adjust to the local time zone, an early move-in date will be arranged with Residence Life. Graduate students will only have a one day mandatory orientation session, which will be scheduled before their departmental orientation sessions. New, incoming students should contact Shauna Walsh to see what day they should arrive on campus before booking flights to Nashville.
