One Free Summer Class
Get one free summer class when you submit your deposit by March 1st!
Belmont Abbey College is helping incoming first-year students get ready for college life with a free course to jump-start their careers. When new students submit their enrollment deposit by March 1st, they’ll automatically qualify for a free summer course preceding their first fall semester. With expanded online and in-person hybrid classes, both local and out-of-state students can take advantage of the program and start early on their college careers.
Eligible courses have been selected from the Core Curriculum and will include Western Civilization I, Rhetoric and Writing, Introduction to Psychology, The American Constitution, and Introduction to Scripture. By taking a summer course before the beginning of the Fall semester, new incoming students will enter their freshman year at least three credits ahead – allowing more flexibility in future terms and potentially shortening the timeline to graduation for some students.
The free Jump Start Summer Class offer is the first of its kind for Belmont Abbey College. Students must apply, be accepted, and then deposit by March 1st to be eligible.
