Private Yet Affordable

Lisa Champion ADP Test-01The Adult Degree Program brings the liberal arts tradition of Belmont Abbey College to our adult learners in a flexible, affordable way. The program offers mature students (23 years of age and older) the opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree through participation in challenging courses that are designed to help adult learners meet their educational and career goals in a timely fashion. Unlike other choices, at the Abbey you’ll also get the kind of attention you deserve. From faculty that will know you by name, to administrators that ensure all your needs are met, the Abbey is different. Our retention rate is 73% — that means students get what they need and they stay. Our degree is built for you!Wanda Barnes ADP Test-01

All of this value comes at an affordable price. We’ve worked very hard to keep our tuition low. We haven’t raised tuition in more than three years. And we’re committed to keeping our college affordable with our Four-Year Tuition Guarantee. We don’t charge fees, we don’t charge for parking and we’re right here in Gaston County. Get the details and you’ll see — the Abbey is the affordable private college.

DJBFAV1W

Dr. Julie Beeman – Criminal Justice Professor: I love the small classes and the numerous opportunities I have to get to know my students, in and out of the classroom. Our Criminal Justice majors are drawn to this field out of a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors and communities. I’m honored to guide them toward a deeper understanding of society and human nature. As a former practitioner, my experiences help students learn how to turn theory into practice.

SalesW

Dr. Hugh Sales – Business ProfessorAfter a very diverse and exciting business career I decided to return to school, obtain a PhD, and become a college professor. In my career, I found the best employees were those who had a solid, well-rounded liberal arts education as well as professional skills. Belmont Abbey gives students this well-rounded background, with the added benefit of ethical and moral perspectives that can make them valuable and worthy citizens in life and business.

SaraPowell-web

Sarah Powell – Education Professor: I don’t think you’ll find too many department chairs that teach the first class. I prefer to teach them because I want to show them the realities of the classroom and the multiple joys and challenges of being a teacher. And then I get to follow them up through graduation and watch them mature and learn the skill of teaching, and also develop in their hearts a real passion for children and learning.
