What Our Clients Say

CHRISTIAN CONDUCT

All students must maintain conduct becoming to a Christian.  They must be in good standing with their home church.  Believers in Christ speak the truth, seek out reconciliation and share what they have received (Ephesians 4: 24-25).  A true Christian is known by his or her good speech and kindness toward others.

ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS

Students must complete the credits required for their programs with an average of at least 70%.
