I understand that this institution is a private institution and I have no vested rights in the governance of it. I accept my attendance as a PRIVILEGE and not a right and that this institution reserves the right to require the withdrawal of a student at any time if in the judgment of the President and/or Dean, such action is deemed necessary to safeguard the institution’s ideals of scholarship or the spiritual and moral atmosphere of a Christian institution.
I will keep this CODE OF HONOR carefully and prayerfully. I understand that my acceptance of the entire CODE OF HONOR completes a contract between me and the institution, which is a prerequisite for matriculation and becomes a part of my permanent file.
