Academic Standards

ACADEMIC ADVISORS
Each student is assigned to an advisor. You are invited to counsel with your advisor regarding your program of study, course requirements, class load and adjustments, and other academic matters.

CLASS ATTENDANCE AND CLASS ABSENCES
Students are required to attend all classes. Absences are counted from the first scheduled meeting of the classes and are considered as either excused or unexcused absences.

The excused absences are those that result from illness, death of a direct relative, emergency, or authorized school trips. All other absences are considered unexcused.
An excused absence will permit you to make up the work missed. You must secure an excuse blank from the Academic Dean’s Office and present it to the teacher by the second class period following the absence.

If the total number of absences from any class exceeds 20% of the number of class hours scheduled for any course, the student may get a failing grade in that course. In case the absences are mostly excused, the teacher may review your situation with the Academic Dean and use his discretion in the matter.

ABSENCES BEFORE AND AFTER VACATION
Absences immediately preceding or following a vacation, school picnic, and field day will be considered double absences.

TARDINESS
Three cases of tardiness equal one absence, and missing as much as fifteen minutes from any part of the class period is counted as an absence.

BOOKS
Textbooks, workbooks, notebooks, and other school supplies are available at the Seminary Bookstore.

EXAMINATIONS
There are two exams, a mid-term and a final, listed for every course at Lebanon Baptist Seminary. Beside these two major exams, teachers may give anything between 6 to 10 quizzes. Dates for these quizzes appear in the syllabus of every course.

ACADEMIC PROBATION
If your grades drop below C, you may be placed on academic probation. You may read the details of the academic probation policy in the Seminary Catalog.
