Visit Bellarmine

Get a taste of what to expect from life as a Knight by visiting our campus. We believe in making you feel welcome and at home – that’s why you’ll see a pineapple in our coat of arms; the international symbol for hospitality.

Our visit is such an incredible experience, we are willing to offer a scholarship to back it up. When you attend our campus visit, in-person or through a virtual session, and file your FAFSA, you can qualify for a $1,500 Trustee Scholarship upon admission. That is a total of $6,000 over your four years at Bellarmine!

Reach out and put us to the test. Check out the different ways you can see Bellarmine for yourself.
