To continue in good academic standing, a student must maintain a "C" average for all classroom work. Students with a poor average in high school or college who are accepted on academic probation have only one semester to bring their grades up to a "C" average. All students must maintain a "C" average or face academic probation for the semester that follows. Students placed on academic probation for two successive semesters will be given an academic suspension for at least one semester. Readmission to the college or seminary will be by faculty action.
Withdrawal from a course during the first six weeks of the term will not be recorded even if the student is not doing passing work, if proper withdrawal procedures have been followed. Withdrawals after the 11th week will be recorded as failure unless exception is made by faculty action. A semester week is any time classes meet Monday through Saturday, whether it be one day or five days.
If a student receives an incomplete grade at the end of the semester he/ she has 3 weeks in which to complete the course. At the time of the completion of the course, the grade will then be changed to a proper letter grade; otherwise, it remains a non-punitive incomplete.
Students are allowed two absences per semester in each class. Each additional absence will lower the final grade one full letter grade. Three tardies constitute one absence. A student is considered tardy when arriving at class within a 10-minute period after the opening. When arriving after 10 minutes, a student is considered absent.
