  2. Applicants are required to submit an admission application, official transcripts from all previously attended schools, colleges, and universities, and a $35 application fee. Application for admission should be made early so that appropriate records may be obtained and preparations made for enrollment. Belmont Abbey College admits students at the beginning of each semester (August and January) and in the summer (May). Deadline for applications for the fall semester is August 1, and December 1 for the spring semester. The earlier your application is submitted, the sooner you can apply for scholarship and financial aid opportunities, so we strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
