Frequently Asked Questions

College is a time of change, growth and transition. The emphasis is on learning during this time in your life, but college is also a time to explore your ability to cope with stress, adapt to change, form relationships, balance work and play and make personal decisions.

The counselors at the Abbey are here to help you when presented with the challenges of taking responsibility for your personal growth. During the course of your years at the Abbey, you may want help and guidance in dealing with the everyday stresses of college life, self-confidence, emotions or finding your personal values. This is why we are here.

Currently enrolled traditional Belmont Abbey College students may utilize counseling services or consultations. If it is determined that another agency or person may better meet a student’s needs, he or she is referred on a voluntary basis to that source. If a student is referred to an off-campus therapist, he or she will be responsible for all fees.

BAC Counseling Services are located in the Wellness Center- rear, lower level of the Haid Building.
