Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

I could not have picked a more perfect school for me!! I love it!!
Taylor
Belmont is expensive, but, to me, it's worth it. I love the oppurtunity Belmont presents and the relationships I've made with the students. The sense of community you get from being a student at Belmont University is unparalleled to any other.
Megan from Nashville, TN
Tuition is on the higher end. For a private Christian college it seems to me that it will definitely be worth the expense in the end.
Nicole from Brentwood, TN
I wish that students could take 18 hours of classes without having to pay extra... Despite the expense, it is worth it- it is a quality education, and I am basing that off my first semester! I am learning so much about music that I could not fathom and gaining so much experience in my field of interest!
Jordan from Nashville, TN
Although Belmont is very expensive and can be slightly tight-handed when it comes to giving out money, it really is a wonderful school. Most everyone is nice and outgoing, the professors are wonderful, the campus is beautiful, and it's right outside downtown Nashville. While it's not a huge school, it's not a small one either, and any where you go you're bound to see people you know, although you're bound to meet new people as well. So much talent is accumulated at the school, you know that you're meeting people who will end up famous.
Marcella from Kentwood, MI
When you come to Belmont University, you are recieving everything that you paid for. A great education, a great social network, and not to mention a beautiful campus with a lot of resources to help you out in the real world.
Briana from Antioch, TN
It's expensive, but I have yet to meet someone who says it's not worth it.
Grace from Nashville, TN
This question is hard for me, since I had to transfer against my will because it was too much money for my family to afford. However, I believe that this University is at the top of its class, truly a one of a kind institution that can't be compared to any other place. There are countless opportunities alloted every single day. I believe that this school is worth the price, but of course, I wish it could be about $5,000-$10,000 cheaper.
