The Bellarmine Virtual Visit

Usually, we’d love to host you in person. Bellarmine is a welcoming community that prides itself on hospitality, so much so, that the pineapple is one of our most recognizable symbols. But, like much of the world, our campus has closed now to protect our community from the Coronavirus.


But don’t worry, you can still get to know us. You can explore Bellarmine here through our videos and virtual tour. And our admission office and the financial aid office are available by phone or email, as well as our counselors listed below. Spring and fall admissions are on track. And, if you’ve already applied, you’ll be hearing from a counselor soon.

Frequently Asked Questions

You probably have questions. We have answers.

Will the Trustee Scholarship be honored? 

Yes, any admitted senior who had a visit scheduled that we had to cancel, including those students who were planning to visit for the first time at All Knighter, will receive the Trustee Scholarship if they have filed their FAFSA. 

When will visits open back up? When can I reschedule?

We are monitoring the situation closely, and we do not have a date to re-open campus visits at this time. We encourage you to explore all of the resources on this page and connect with your admission counselor to learn more.

Is the admissions process delayed or pushed back at all?

We will continue to review applications as they are completed and make admission decisions throughout the summer. We will be flexible and work with students regarding checklist items that may be difficult to obtain during this period. For example, we will not delay review of your application if we are just missing a recommendation. We understand your school may be out because of the virus. If we are missing your transcript, we are willing to accept an unofficial transcript. Contact your admission counselor regarding specific checklist items and concerns.

What events are cancelled?

All Knighter and all campus visits are cancelled until we feel confident that a plan is in place for a healthy re-opening. We have revised our Knight U academic orientation to move the sessions online and offer admitted students a chance to connect with campus and each other virtually throughout the summer.

Will I be able to complete my application when schools are online?

We will be flexible regarding specific requirements on your checklist. We are still reviewing applications and will continue to admit students throughout this process. Work with your admission counselor directly to discuss items needed to complete your application to Bellarmine.

I’m a future athlete, how does this affect me?

Consistent with legislation to establish a temporary recruiting dead period for all NCAA Division I and II sports and the suspension of all National Letter of Intent signings until at least April 15, 2020, legislation was adopted March 18, 2020, to prohibit institutions from issuing institutional financial aid agreements to prospective student-athletes and to preclude prospective student-athletes from signing such agreements until at least April 15. Bellarmine will adhere to these policies and student athletes can expect to hear from us after the dead period.

Will this affect timing of admission notification?

We will continue to review applications and release decisions throughout the summer, once your application is completed, you can expect to hear from us with a decision within two weeks.

Will the enrollment deposit deadline be extended?

We are extending the enrollment deposit date to June 1st. And, to ease your concern about deposits in this unprecedented time, we are allowing students to request a refund by August 15 should you change your mind regarding your enrollment.

Will the housing application be extended?

Our housing process will continue as planned with Part 2 opening on March 20. You can complete your housing application at any time after you have paid your deposit in

Are other offices at Bellarmine open?

Yes. Campus operations will continue and faculty and staff will still offer the many services students rely on, even if they are moved online, over the phone or available in a slightly different format.

Is Bellarmine still hosting athletic events?

No. Bellarmine has suspended all athletic competitions for the remainder of the spring semester.

Will extensions be allowed for final transcripts?

We will still need your final official transcript with your graduation date from your current school, but you can have that sent to us at any time before you arrive for central check in on August 15.

My current school closed. Will you accept an unofficial transcript?

We will be flexible and can review your application with an unofficial transcript but will need the official transcript with your graduation date listed before you can enroll.
