Notes:

(1)

(a) For students enrolled in the Nursing Program of study, there will be additional charges for the course hours taken at Belmont University. These additional charges are calculated and published in May and may be accessed by calling the Nursing Program Coordinator at (615) 248-1540 or Office of Financial Aid at (615) 248-1242. Students enrolled in the Nursing Program who are at Belmont University for much of their day may request to be approved for the 7 Meal Plan which has a lower cost than the usual Full Meal Plan. Students should contact the Office of Student Development to make their request.

(b) Effective with the Fall 2016 semester, textbooks for traditional undergraduate students will be included in tuition. Federal regulation does allow for students to opt out of the free textbook rental program if students wish to purchase textbooks on their own. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts for more details.

(2)

(a) Students who audit a course at the hourly rate listed also will be charged a technology fee of $50 per course.

(b) Senior citizens, 60 years of age or older, may audit up to 3 hours per semester tuition-free on space available basis with approval of instructor and associate vice president for academic services. Does not apply to trips, special degree programs, or course fees.

(3)

(4)

Damage in a residence hall for which responsibility cannot be determined will be charged on a pro rata basis to all residents during the semester. Person(s) known to be responsible for vandalism will be charged the full amount personally. Damage in a student’s room is charged to the resident(s) of that room or to the person(s) known to have caused the damage.
