Academic Standards Policy
• Applicants to student leadership positions must have a minimum 2.3 GPA. *
• If a current student leader's GPA falls below 2.3, the student will be required to meet with their organizational advisor or supervisor to discuss the situation and determine whether the student will be allowed to continue to serve in the role. It is the advisor or supervisor's responsibility to make this decision.
Conduct Standards Policy
• Students on disciplinary probation are not eligible to apply for student leadership positions.
• If a current student leader violates the community life standards or policies, their organizational advisor or supervisor will be notified and the student will be required to meet with the advisor or supervisor to discuss the situation and determine whether the student should be permitted to continue to serve in the role. It is the advisor or supervisor's responsibility to make this decision.
For example, as outlined in the community life standards I will:
• Choose to embrace God-honoring diversity
• Choose sexual purity, modesty and celibacy outside of a marriage covenant
