Student Financial Services
The Office of Student Financial Services is to assist students with all aspects of financing their Belmont education. Many questions regarding student accounts, payment plans and important documentation can be answered by visiting the Student Financial Services website or by calling their office at 888-845-1001. In addition, students can make appointments with staff that will help them navigate their student account and payments.
Understanding a student’s and family’s contribution to their Belmont education is a first step preparing to invest in your Belmont education. Two helpful online tools are:
- Cost Estimators – the online form listing all of the tuitions and fees for the academic year.
Belmont University has different types of financial aid and scholarships available. To learn more about these forms of aid visit:
- Financial Aid – information about a student’s overall financial aid package.
- Scholarships – information on Belmont Merit Scholarships, Endowed Scholarships and how to apply for Outside Scholarships.
Student Accounts and Payments
As you prepare for a payment the following resources will assist you in determining the best method of payment for your student and family as well as important payment dates.
- Student account and payment information – information on how to pay your student’s bill, refund information, official withdrawal policy, billing statement information and more.
- Important Information – regarding payments and important dates to remember.
- Online Bill Payment Instructions – students able to pay bills online as well as add an “authorized user,” such as a parent or guardian, who will have access only to the student’s financial payment information.
- Tuition Management System - Belmont, in partnership with Tuition Management Systems, offers an interest-free monthly installment plan for an annual enrollment fee of $55.00. Students may enroll in a 12-month plan beginning May 1, or a 10-month plan beginning July 1, or an 8-month plan beginning August 1.
- Third Party Billing - Belmont University will bill a Third Party (sponsor i.e. outside agency, corporation or State Prepaid Plan) requiring a separate invoice that agrees to pay directly to Belmont all or part of your tuition and fees. To take advantage of this service, a student must provide written authorization from the Third Party payer providing details of the Third Party benefit.
The Office of Student Financial Services also oversees student employment. There are two types of student employment for Belmont students:
- Belmont Student Employee - Belmont Student Employees (BSE) make up the majority of student workers on campus and are a valuable asset to the greater university community. BSE student wages are solely paid for by the department for which they work.
- Federal Work-Study - Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a financial aid program that allows students to work on-campus or with approved off-campus community service employers to earn money to pay for college expenses. Eligible students are awarded FWS when they complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Jobs at Belmont – the online job posting system can be accessed at any time. As positions become available individual offices will post, take applications and interview qualified applicants. **When accessing the website make sure to click on the “Student Employment” tab found in the middle of the page to search positions available to Belmont students.
