Attendance

All students are expected to be prompt and faithful in class attendance. A student is considered absent when not in attendance for a regularly scheduled class. An unexcused absence for two 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 session to receive credit for attendance. 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 on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday of a particular month. Participation of all students at these Chapel programs is mandatory.

Chapel services are designed for:

• Inspiration

• Supplemental Christian training

• Preparation

• Provision, and

• Incorporation of both the corporate, as well as the individual growth and development of the student body.

Chapel Assignments

Students are scheduled 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 the event where one finds it impossible to fulfill his or her assignment, your instructor must be informed. Failure to fulfill the assignment given can adversely affect his or her final grade in the course.

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 permitted in any 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 indispensable. 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.
