Students are allowed six (6) chapel absences each semester. These six allowed absences will not be used in determining the chapel grade. For each chapel absence over the six (6) allowed, a $50 fine will be automatically assessed to the student’s account. The absence will not be cleared until the fine is paid in the Business Office. Holds will be placed on the student’s account until the excessive chapel absences are cleared.
Students currently with holds on their accounts due to Chapel absences should follow the procedures for clearing these absences which were in force when the absence occurred. Satisfactory chapel attendance is a graduation requirement. Diplomas will not be awarded until the chapel absences are cleared.
Students need to retain their ID Badges for the coming years. If they lose it, or it gets destroyed, they will be charged $30 for a new one upon their return to campus for classes. Please do not throw the badges away at the end of the semester.
