Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment is defined as degree-seeking students currently enrolled at Belmont University (full-time or part-time status) who plan on taking additional courses at another U.S. accredited college or university during any term, including summer. The purpose of the Concurrent Enrollment course review/approval process is to ensure that a course taken through another college/university will transfer back to Belmont as planned, meaning the outside course is "equivalent" to fulfill a Belmont course requirement.

Maximum Credit Hours: Once a student has started/matriculated to Belmont, he or she may not take more than a total of 18 credit hours through another college or university.  Exceptions to this policy include Belmont approved programs on other campuses, and approved study abroad programs.

Receiving Grades: It is the student’s responsibility to contact the other college or university to request that an official transcript be sent to the Office of the Registrar, once the course is completed and the grades are posted to the transcript.  Transferred grades of D+ or lower may not be used for major, minor, or general education requirements.  Refer to the transfer policy in the current catalog

Current students may request that the other college or university send the official transcript directly to the following:

Upon completion of the Course Substitution Form (with all required signatures), it should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar.
  3. If you plan on taking a general education or lower-level business course at one of the Tennessee community colleges listed below, many of those courses are already pre-approved to transfer to Belmont and count as “equivalent.” Please click on the college link below, find the course you are planning to take at the other college,  and if a Belmont course is listed beside it, then that course will transfer to Belmont as specified.
