Step one: Submit Your Application

The first step is to submit your application. Belmont Abbey College’s application is free to submit online. An essay is not required for initial submission. You will be prompted to create a CFNC (College Foundation of North Carolina) account. This is a free account and it allows you to work on your application over time.

You have two options for applying to The Abbey: All students applying prior up until October 30 will be Early Action* candidates, and will find out their admissions decision by mail, and electronically on November 6th. After October 30th, all applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and students who submit their application can expect an admissions decision within one week of completing their file.

Step two: Submit Your Transcript & Test Scores

The second step is to submit your official transcript and official standardized test scores (we accept the SAT, ACT and CLT). Your transcript needs to include the name of your school, your personal information, a detailed list of the classes you have taken throughout your high school years along with the letter grade you received for each class.

* Early Action is a non-binding program that allows you to find out your     admissions decision early in the fall of your senior year. Merit scholarships, institutional grants, state and federal aid that Belmont Abbey offers is available to both Early Action and Rolling Admissions candidates. However, priority consideration for institutional grant money are given to students who fill out, and file FAFSA prior to February 1, 2021. Students who haven’t taken an ACT, SAT, or CLT exam are eligible to apply for Early Action.

Admission Requirements

Requirements for admission into the Center for Continuing & Professional Studies (CCPS) are:

  1. Submit an application for admission. An application for admission should be made early so that appropriate records may be obtained and preparations made for enrollment. Belmont Abbey College’s CCPS has rolling admissions for each of its five starts throughout the year (late-August, mid-October, early-January, mid-March, and late-May). The earlier your application is submitted, the sooner you can apply for scholarship and financial aid opportunities, so we strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
  2. Submit official transcripts from each school attended (High school, college, or university).

Upon receipt of all transcripts and the completion of your admission file, students will be contacted by their assigned enrollment and success coach as to the status of their admission and for class registration.

A formal application statement may be required from any applicant who has less than 24 transfer credits, has a GPA of less than 2.0 from any four-year college or university, has a GPA of less than 2.5 from any community or junior college, or has not been enrolled full time in the last three years.
