Please note the following:

  • Students are required to attend twelve of the fourteen chapel services each semester.
  • Students must bring their Student ID to receive Chapel Credit.
  • Chapel Service begins at 10:00 any student who arrives late will not get chapel credit and any student who leaves early will not receive chapel credit.
  • Any student who does not attend the required number of Chapel services in any semester in which they are enrolled full-time must contact the Office of the Vice President of Academic Services to be assigned a make-up activity in order to earn a “Chapel credit.” 
  • Students who remain enrolled in future semesters can make up chapel absences by attending the twelve (12) mandatory chapels plus additional ones to receive “Chapel credit” for the semester in which the student was delinquent. 
  • Since Chapel is a requirement for graduation, transcripts of academic credits will be held until attendance/make-up requirements are met.
  •  One make-up activity is required for each chapel missed over the allotted two absences per semester.
  • All offices-including the library, cafeteria, Cyber Cafe, and bookstore-will be closed to students during Chapel.
