Bellarmine University / Admitted Student Checklist

Admitted Student Checklist

Spring, Before Graduating

  • Confirm your enrollment at Bellarmine University by paying the $200 deposit. This deposit officially reserves your spot in the Class of 2022.
  • If you’ll be living on campus, complete our online Housing Application.  
  • Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning October 1, 2017. It is important to complete this as soon as possible to ensure you receive all federal and state aid that you qualify for.
  • View your Financial Aid Award online. Choose to accept or decline each item on your award, then click “Submit.” If you accept Stafford Loans, complete the Loan Entrance Counseling and sign the Promissory Note to have these applied to your Fall 2018 bill
  • Complete the Foreign Language Placement Test. All new freshmen must complete this prior to registering for classes. 
  • Register for classes by completing the Pre-Advising Form. If you RSVP to attend April 21’s Knight U, you’ll be automatically prompted to complete this form. If you cannot attend Knight U, complete the Pre-Advising Form on your own as soon as possible. It will go to an academic advisor who will build your fall class schedule for you and send it to you via mail.
