Bible Class Enrollment:

Bible Class Enrollment: Students who enroll in more than eight hours in a semester are required to take a Bible class. In fall and spring, the required Bible class must meet on-ground and be taken for at least two hours of credit. In summer the Bible class must be for at least one hour of credit.

Attendance is compulsory regardless of the grade being earned, and it cannot be dropped. A student who has excessive unexcused absences in Bible ("excessive" is defined as equal to or greater than 20% of the class meetings) will be placed on Bible Attendance Probation, will lose the privilege of priority registration, and will be required to sign a Bible attendance contract in the Office of the Provost prior to registering for the next semester. (Students who have already registered will not be able to register during the next priority registration.) A student who has excessive absences in Bible in more than one semester will be suspended from the University at least a minimum of one term.

Bible Class Exemptions: Students are exempt from Bible once they pass eight semesters of Bible and have fulfilled the Bible graduation requirement. Students have a one semester exemption from Bible if they have passed two Bible courses at HUG or HIZ or are participating in supervised teaching or field study. Post baccalaureate students who have met the graduation requirement are not required to take additional hours of Bible.
