Make Your Life Exceptional

The 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. Your professors will know you by name, and give you the insights and help you need.

 

Our Adult Degree Program History

The non-residential, Adult Degree Program (ADP) at Belmont Abbey College has long served Gaston County residents through its various leadership programs, camps, and conferences. Bachelor’s degree programs for adult students began in 1987, when neighboring Sacred Heart College closed and its adult program relocated to the Abbey. The Adult Degree Program expanded to Mecklenburg County and opened a campus at the Charlotte Catholic High School in the fall of 2009.

The Flexibility and the Degree You Need

Courses are available to adults in the evening and/or during the day. Classes are available at the Main Campus, the Sacred Heart Campus, and at the Charlotte Campus located at Char_L7W0168lotte Catholic High School.

Adult Degree Program students are fully integrated into the College program and are eligible to enroll in any of the College’s academic degree programs. ADP students who can attend day classes can major in any of the majors offered to Traditional students.

For students who can attend classes only at night, Belmont Abbey currently offers seven evening majors: Accounting, Applied Psychology, Business Management, Criminal Justice, Elementary Education (K-6), Educational Studies, and Liberal Studies. The evening schedule provides a full range of courses that enables the ADP student to complete a degree in one of the aforementioned majors.
