Policies

Probation and Termination

A student who does not maintain a grade-point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 (a “C” average) will be placed on academic probation for the next semester. If, at the end of the probation term, a student’s GPA is not raised to at least 2.0, the student will be dismissed due to lack of satisfactory academic progress. Students may appeal to the Administration for reinstatement. If reinstated, a student must raise their GPA to 2.0 within a semester in order to be removed from probationary status.

Attendance Policy

Semester Courses meet for twelve 1-hour classes. Students may be absent for two classes without penalty. Three absences will lower the student’s grade by one letter. Four absences will result in failure of the course. Since no absences are considered excusable, it is important for students to save their provisional absences for unexpected sickness and emergencies.

Tardy

With classes meeting for only 50 minutes a week, it is imperative that students arrive on time to complete the educational objectives. Two tardies equal one absence.

If a student misses more than 60 minutes of a Saturday seminar, that student will dropped from that course and tuition will be refunded.

Late Assignments

Mid-term exams turned in a week late will lower the grade of the project by one letter. Mid-term exams turned in two weeks past the due date will not be accepted.

Final exams and semester projects turned in beyond the due date will not be accepted. Teachers have a rigid schedule to turn semester grades in to the office for report cards and the official closing of the semester.

Withdrawals

A student may drop a class without grading penalty if the withdrawal is made before the drop date. The drop date is the end of the fourth week of classes. The procedure for withdrawing from a class is as follows: Submit a letter to the instructor of the class requesting to drop. The letter must be signed by the teacher and then submitted to the College office for approval. The student will be notified if the request is approved.

If the transfer credits involve Bible courses, these may be matched to the specified required program, and a minimum of 32 credit hours would have to be taken from CCC to earn a Bachelor’s degree from CCC.  A maximum of 16 credit hours can be transferred into the Master’s program.
