Academic Policies

New Student’s Orientation

Attendance at orientation is required for all new students  and is a part of standard admission process. New Student orientation is designed to facilitate familiarity with Chil Chil academics, personal, campus services, registration, University life, and general University policies/procedures. Students find the fellowship, instruction, and “spirit” of orientation to be extremely helpful toward assimilation into the CCU community and academic success.

Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance to classes is expected of all students at Chil Chil University. The student alone assumes responsibility for all absences. Classes missed the two days before and/or after holidays are counted as double absences.

Examinations

Students must take all examinations on the assigned dates. Make-up examinations, if expressly approved by the teacher, may be taken within one week of the date of the absence.

Repeating a Course

If a student fails a course, or if final grade is below the minimum requirements for graduation in his/her major, he /she may repeat that course. All grades earned by a student become part of his permanent record and will show on any transcript issued by the university; however, when a course is repeated at CCU, the highest earned grade is used in computing the grade point average (GPA) and the credit hours are only counted once.

Course Load

Normally full-time students will carry 18-21 credit hours per semester. For M. Th. full time load is 9-12 credit hours per semester. Students whose grade point average falls below C will be placed on academic probation and the hour may be reduced. No student is allowed to exceed his academic load without administrative approval.

Re-admission

A student who has not enrolled for more than two consecutive regular semesters will be required to submit a new application for admission and must meet the degree requirements for the current catalogue. Registration alone does not constitute enrollment. A student’s readmission to any term is subject to review. One will be readmitted to the University each term on the basis of his/ her total record, including both academic performance and progress toward effective Christian ministry.The University reserves the right to dismiss a student at any time.

CCU accepts students transferring from another institution for the same course provided they must  bring all the transcripts from previous institution. No transferring student shall be admitted in the final year for any Course under any circumstance.
