The number of WELL Core credits a student 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. 

  • Freshmen (0-29 transfer hours)
  • Sophomores (30-59 transfer hours)
  • Juniors (60-89 transfer hours)
  • Seniors (90 or above transfer hours)

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

Adult Degree Program students should contact Nichole Ritchie in the Adult Degree Program office at in order to determine their specific requirements and methods for completing WELL Core.
