All About the FAFSA Financial Aid at Belhaven

Before you start classes, you’ll need to complete the mandatory online orientation. Your student services representative will be in touch regarding registration and orientation. You’ll also receive orientation instructions with your acceptance letter.

Getting Connected

BlazeNet is our online student information system — you’ll receive login instructions in your acceptance letter. This is the place to register for classes, check your grades, update your account information, make an online payment, and accept your financial aid awards.

It’s also the central hub for campus departments to post information for all students — announcements, forms, policies, handbooks, and more.

Log in to BlazeNet

As an accepted student, you’ve been assigned a Belhaven email address. Be sure to check it regularly for important notifications and reminders.

We’ll send your email account details soon after your acceptance letter. Once you have access to BlazeNet, you can view instructions to forward your Belhaven e-mail to your personal e-mail account.

Check Your Email

Canvas is the learning management system that Belhaven uses for online education. This platform simplifies teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools professors use in one easy place.

You’ll use Canvas to review the syllabus, participate in class lectures, post discussions, access course modules, and submit assignments.
