If you’re pursuing a degree at another college or university, but want to take classes at Belmont as well, enrolling as a transient student is an affordable way to get ahead in your degree program or complete prerequisites.

Here are the steps to enrolling Belmont College as a transient student:

Apply for admission.

Find the right academic program for you.
Complete an Application for Admission. There’s no fee to apply.

Secure the proper approval from your home institution to take the course(s) at Belmont College. This may include completing a permission form and/or gathering signatures from your Registrar or Academic Advisor. Turn in a copy of your completed approval form to the Belmont College Registrar’s Office, or fax it to 740.699.3049 before you register.

Apply for financial aid.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The Belmont College code is 009941. Finalize your FAFSA as early as possible to ensure your financial aid is processed in time to pay for your classes. If you have questions, contact the Financial Aid Office at 740.695.8510 or financialaid@belmontcollege.edu.

Register for classes.

You’ll meet with an academic advisor to plan your schedule and make sure you’re in the right course(s) for your program.

Pay tuition and fees.

If you’re eligible for financial aid, those funds will be applied to your bill. Payment arrangements can be made through the Business Office if you don’t receive financial aid or owe a balance.

Buy your books.

You can now purchase your textbooks online with free shipping to campus! If you have available financial aid to buy books, you’ll receive a book voucher to use at the Campus Shop. Please verify with the Financial Aid Office that your aid has been processed and approved if you plan to use aid funds for books.

Attend classes.

If you’re taking online courses, log into Canvas by the first day of class.
