Application Process for International Students
Please complete application and submit with a non-refundable application fee of $25.00 (U.S. currency only). Please do not send cash. If a friend or relative submits the fee for you, be sure to instruct him/her to include your name on the check or money order so that your application fee can be credited. Applications will not be considered until the application fee is paid.
You should underline or circle the name on your application which your home government considers most important in identifying your records. It is important to include your date of birth on all documents as many applicants have similar names.
It is important for international students to apply early allowing enough time to secure student visas.

"Belhaven has been a very positive experience for me through building relationships with the faculty that genuinely care about my growth in dance and also meeting friends from different areas of the world. I've coped with the distance by intentionally investing in friendships here and spending time with other international students. Knowing that there are other foreign students here who identify with your situation serves as a great support."
