Talk to Financial Aid
Good news! Your eligibility for Bellarmine University Scholarships and grants is determined during the admission process, which means you don’t have to fill out a separate application to be considered! Just make sure to submit your
application prior to February 1. Learn more at www.bellarmine.edu/financialaid/institutional.
The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 each year, and you should file it as early as possible during your senior year of high school to maximize your eligibility. You can find the FAFSA at studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa; be sure to list Bellarmine’s school code, 001954 , on your application to ensure your federal financial aid
is included in your comprehensive financial aid package.
If you have questions about financial aid, visit www.bellarmine.edu/financialaid/checklist or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apply for Housing
In order to apply for housing and register for classes, you will need to pay a $200 enrollment deposit online www.bellarmine.edu/admissions/deposit/pay.
Most students live on campus for their first 3 years at Bellarmine, and that hasn’t changed. Our residence halls will be at regular capacity (so 2 students in a 2-person room, etc.), but
we’re adopting special community living and cleaning protocols to reduce the risk of infection. Here’s what to expect:
- All community members (students, faculty and staff) will perform a daily wellness screening and report symptoms.
- Common areas will be set up to promote physical distancing. You must wear face coverings in common spaces.
- Only Bellarmine students will be permitted to visit residence halls.
- We’re altering our usual move-in day procedures to ensure distancing and safety protocol.
If you're worried that living on campus may pose a risk to your health, you should submit a medical housing exception application. You can find this and other housing exception forms at www.bellarmine.edu/studentaffairs/residence/policy.
You’ll need to pay your enrollment deposit and set up your Bellarmine email account before you can apply for housing. Use your Bellarmine credentials to log in to our housing portal and complete an application. Once you complete your application, look out for a postcard in the mail with information on how to access your housing assignment and roommate information in the
Engage in Academic Advising
Once you’re admitted, you will need to fill out a pre-advising form and attend a Knight U orientation (or watch a pre-recorded webinar). Your advisor will pre-register you for classes
and send a letter requesting that you make an appointment to review your schedule, ask questions, and so your advisor can explain how your courses work.
Virtual appointments (Recommended)
All appointments will be held virtually via Teams or over the phone. Visit www.bellarmine.edu/studentsuccess/advising/appointment to schedule an appointment or learn more. If you’re not sure who your Academic Advisor is, you can find out in the Self-Service portal on one.bellarmine.edu.
If you have any questions about academic advising and are unsure of who to contact, reach out to Lory L. King at email@example.com or 502-272-8061.
All of our KnightU orientation dates for summer 2020 have passed, but you can find more information about special supplemental sessions at www.bellarmine.edu/all-knighter/knightu.
Move-in for first year students is August 14 and 15. If you have reserved housing, you’ll be sent information on how to schedule your move-in time, and keep in mind that you’ll need to comply with new policies,
like wearing a mask in public places.
To help facilitate physical distancing, we're introducing a new Drop-and-Go program this year, which allows you to deliver belongings to your room prior to your move-in appointment. Drop-and-Go appointments will be available Sunday, August 9,
through Wednesday, August 12. You can sign up for a Drop-and-Go appointment through the housing portal.
The 2020 Move-In Guide can be found on the Residence Life website.If you have housing-related questions, please reach out to Residence Life
