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 Charlotte 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.
