Belmont Abbey College understands you probably have a lot going on right now with the cancellation of testing dates, many high schools moving to online instruction, and other disruptions to your daily schedules.

That’s why we are doing as much as possible to remove barriers for qualified students to complete their application and gain admission to Belmont Abbey College.

We remain test-optional for admissions purposes (no SAT or ACT required) and are now able to review applications based on unofficial transcripts at this time.
