ATTENDANCE AND GRADES
Regular and punctual attendance is conducive to improved learning and smooth class operation. It also assists teachers in the steady and successful teaching of the curriculum. Good attendance, in Chapel services as well, is a requirement for graduation. Poor attendance may affect your grade. Students missing more than three classes may be automatically given a failing grade for the course, unless, under adverse circumstances, arrangements have been made with the teacher or registrar.
INCOMPLETES AND EXTENSIONS
Students are permitted to take make-up exams or redo unsatisfactory papers if the instructor agrees that it is permissible according to each situation. Extensions of time for class and dissertation papers must be requested of the instructor in writing before the end of a term. After that, students will have at least two months to complete the work before the "I" (incomplete) becomes an "F" on the permanent record.
The majority of the textbooks can be purchased at The Bible Church of Christ Christian Bookstore (open Wednesdays through Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Tuesdays open from 12:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m.) If a particular book cannot be found in the bookstore upon registration or during the course of the year, you may place an order with the bookstore through the registrar.
CLASS CHANGES OR WITHDRAWALS
Students desiring to change a class should do so before the third night of classes. This also should be done in writing and submitted to the Registrar's office. There may be a fee for any late class changes. Withdrawals are permitted at any time during the year provided the Registrar's office is notified at least one week in advance. Students will be charged for the complete course for withdrawals 1 month after registration. We reserve the right to cancel any class when there is insufficient space or enrollment or teaching staff. Failure to attend classes does not constitute official withdrawal. For students who pay their tuition in full, an official student request for withdrawal for BCCTI will be honored and refunds made according to the following:
Students can receive bachelor's degree programs for both full- and part-time students.

TUITION, COST, AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Your education is a major investment in yourself and in your future. At The Bible Church of Christ Theological Institute, we invest in you, too, because your success is our success. Grants are based on students' financial needs and overall strength as applicants and are awarded as supplements to students' financial assistance packages. Academic scholarships reward academic achievement. Recipients typically represent students with the highest GPAs and test scores. For students who apply and qualify for need-based financial assistance, the academic scholarship becomes part of their financial assistance package. Whether you're a first-time applicant, a transfer student, or a graduate/professional student, our experienced financial aid officers may review tuition fees with you and assist in creating your financial aid package. Once your application is complete, your admissions counselor will inform you of your eligibility for any financial aid available (grants, scholarships, outside aid, etc.). Most grants and scholarships require that the student be full-time (20 credits per semester).
The Bible Church of Christ Theological Institute is an environment that is as conducive to personal connection as it is to higher learning. Our diverse community of undergraduate and graduate students makes the most of The Bible Church of Christ Theological Institutes' experience by participating in student organizations, volunteer initiatives, spiritual opportunities, and campus activities unique. The Hub for Spiritual Life engages the Pepperdine community in vibrant and consistent experiences of worship and spiritual care.
