Belmont Abbey College participates in the comprehensive
articulation agreement with the North Carolina Community College
System. Students transferring from a North Carolina Community
College enjoy the terms of this agreement. Transfer credits for
courses taken at colleges and universities that are recognized as
accrediting bodies by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation
(CHEA) and the U.S. Department of Education (USDE), in which a
grade of “C” or better has been earned, are generally accepted.
Belmont Abbey College will accept a maximum of sixty (60) credit
(semester) hours from a community college. However, Belmont
Abbey College will transfer a maximum of sixty-four (64) credit
(semester) hours for students who graduate under the North Carolina
Community College articulation agreement and receive an AA
degree. Credit hours, not grade points, are transferred.
To be considered for acceptance into Belmont Abbey College as a
transfer student, an applicant should:
1. Be in good standing with the college or university last attended
or in which he or she is currently enrolled. This precludes
academic or disciplinary suspension.
2. Have a 2.00 grade point average (4-point system) if transferring as a freshman or sophomore (less than 60 hours) or have a 2.50
grade point average (4-point system) if transferring as a junior or senior (60 hours and above).
Transfer students who are accepted while attending another college
or university are only accepted provisionally. They should ask the
registrar of their current institution to forward a transcript of their
most recent grades to the Adult Degree Program Admissions Office of Belmont Abbey
College. If applicants are suspended, they may not be admitted until
they are in good standing at the same or another college or university.
A student who has met all of these requirements, has earned 24
acceptable semester credits, and desires to be considered for
admission, must first submit:
1. A completed admissions application.
2. Official transcript from every college or university attended,
as well as a high-school transcript. A transfer student who
is transferring fewer than 24 semester credits must submit the
same credentials and meet the same admissions requirements
required of entering freshmen (and have an overall grade point
average of 2.00 in completed college coursework)
