The Belhaven University International Student Office is here to assist you. Please feel free to visit or call our office for assistance with any questions or concerns you may have regarding admission or immigration.
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.

Health Insurance/Immunizations for International Students
Belhaven University requires all international students who hold temporary nonimmigrant visa/status and who enroll in academic courses have adequate health (medical, accident and medical, repatriation/evacuation) insurance coverage.
Therefore, all non-immigrant international students will be automatically enrolled in the university contracted student health insurance policy upon registration for university courses, with the cost of such policy added to the student account.
LewerMark Copay Insurance for international students through CIGNA has been approved by Belhaven University.
