The number of convocation credits a students needs is determined by the number of credit hours he/she has when they BEGIN his/her time at Belmont University. For the majority of traditional students, he/she will be considered a freshmen and have the first set of requirements. However, the following is the breakdown for transfer students and second-degree seeking students.

1. Freshman transfer with 0 to 29 hours
2. Sophomore transfer with 30-59 hours
3. Junior transfer with 60-89 hours
4. Senior transfer with 90 plus hours

Graduate and non-degree seeking students are not required to participate in the Convocation Program.
