Attendance
All students are expected to be prompt and faithful in class attendance. A student is considered absent when not in attendance in a regularly scheduled class. Unexcused absence for the equivalent of two class sessions is allowed without penalty. This exception is given to provide for absences due to personal reasons or to fulfill ministry opportunities.

All students must sign the Attendance Sheet at the beginning of each class or the student will be marked absent. Students are not allowed to sign for each other. Students are responsible for all work required, including any assignments missed because of absence.

Chapel
Chapel programs will be held one Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday of that respective month starting in September. Participation of all students at these Chapel programs is mandatory.

Chapel services are designed for:
• Inspiration
• Supplemental Christian training
• Preparation
• Provision, and
• Incorporating both the corporate as well as the individual growth and development of the student body.

Chapel Assignments
Students are schedule to speak in Chapel every month and are frequently encouraged to participate through song, scripture readings, prayer etc. A student is never allowed to ignore an assignment. In event where one finds it impossible to fulfill his or her assignment, your instructor must be informed. In event that a student never fulfills the assignment given, this could adversely affect his or her final grade of the course taken.

Code of Conduct
All students are expected to exemplify good Christian ethics, both verbally and morally, in and out of the classroom environment. Excessive and boisterous behavior will not be accepted either to instructors or fellow classmates. No eating or drinking is allowed in the classroom.

Dress Code
In preparing men and women for professional occupations as ministers of the Gospel, we deem it necessary to conform to certain standards of dress and appearance. These standards are prescribed in order to strengthen the testimony of the Bible School and to promote moral by emphasizing both the importance and the dignity of the ministry.

Cleanliness and neatness in appearance are indispensible. Specifically, during class and chapel hours students are required to wear socks and dress shoes (no tennis shoes or sneakers), dress slacks (no jeans) and dress shirts or a modest dress. Hair should be worn conservatively and be neatly groomed. No excessive jewelry should be worn.

Degree Payment
A processing fee will be assessed for each Degree program. The processing fee will be due at the completion and presentation of the thesis for each Degree program. A ten percent deposit will be required at the beginning of the application process. Contact the administration office for more details.

Grades – Incomplete & Withdrawals

Incomplete
An Incomplete (I) may be granted only in the instance of unusual circumstances such as an extended serious illness. An Incomplete indicates that the work done for the course has been acceptable but some portion of the required work is incomplete for an excusable reason. Requests for an incomplete must be addressed in writing to the Dean of the School.

Withdrawals
A grade of “W” indicates withdrawal or failure to meet attendance or other requirements; “WP” indicates the student passing at the time of withdrawal; “WF” indicates the student is not passing at the time of Withdrawal.

Refunds
A student who chooses to withdraw from a class for which the student has registered, whether the student has attended classes or not, must officially withdraw by completing the withdrawal form. Failure to withdraw officially will result in a W, WP, or WF on the student record or transcript, as appropriate, even though the student may never have attended the class. A student who does not withdraw officially before the Thanksgiving holiday of each academic year shall not be entitled to any refund.

Refunds of tuition payments are based upon the week that the official withdrawal is signed by the Dean, not on the time the student ceases to attend the class. No refunds will be given for withdrawals beyond four weeks of classes!
**No fees can be carried over to the next school year.

Tuition
A non-refundable tuition payment of $50.00 per course is required of all applicants at registration. Students are required to settle all tuition balances by the first Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday. Students that officially withdraw from their courses after December 31 of each academic year will be obligated to pay the entire tuition.

Students whose accounts are not settled by the last day of class will not be allowed to graduate and all certificates, degrees and transcripts will be withheld.
