Admissions FAQ

High school seniors are encouraged to apply to Belmont during the fall months of the senior year. Applications for admission are for a particular term of enrollment. Requirements of materials may change from one term to another. Acceptance for one term does not necessarily indicate that admission will be granted for any other term. Admission to Belmont is competitive.

Applications for admission are considered on a rolling basis pending space available, so early submission of all application materials is strongly encouraged. The School of Music, Department of Theatre & Dance and the Songwriting major have additional application steps with dates for auditions and portfolio submission. Applicants will be notified of a decision within a few weeks of completing the University application. Freshman applicants are encouraged to submit their application by the December 1 priority date to be considered for our largest merit scholarships. The application for admission also serves as the merit scholarship application. Applications completed via The Common Application© are accepted and processed with equal consideration to the Belmont application.
