Students are required to sign in at the beginning of each class session. Students who do not sign in will be considered absent from class.

Class Absences
Any student who will be unable to attend a class, meeting, or clinic must notify the instructor prior to the expected absence to make arrangements to receive all necessary information.

An absence will be excused for the following reasons:
• Work-related
• Injury or illness
• Family crisis

Three unexcused absences will result in an assigned grade of FAILING for that particular section.

Students are expected to arrive to class on time. A two-point penalty will be assessed against a student’s section grade for each class period that the student is more than 30 minutes late.

Course Evaluation Guidelines
Character Assessment
Students are expected to exemplify the highest standard of Christian behavior. This includes the demonstration of godly respect and consideration to the pastors, teachers, and administrative personnel. Keep in mind, only those who know how to submit to authority will know how to be in authority.

Final Grading Reports
Final Grading Reports will be mailed to the student within two weeks of the Final Examination. Any student with a grade average of “D” will be placed on academic probation. Any student with a grade average of “F” will be placed on academic suspension.

Academic Probation
Students on academic probation have one semester to pull their grade average up to a “C” or better. Failing to do so will result in academic suspension.

Academic Suspension
Students on academic suspension may reapply for admission into the college no sooner than six months subsequent to their release. Acceptance is contingent upon the fulfillment of requirements to be announced.

Student Dismissal
Students who are dismissed from continuing in classes for academic, disciplinary, or financial reasons will not be allowed to enroll in future training courses without written permission from the Bible college director. Students who are dismissed for these reasons are not entitled to a tuition refund. Students who are dismissed for financial reasons must have paid all past-due tuition before being permitted to register for future courses.
