STANDARDS OF CONDUCT Do you:
D Yes D Yes
Use alcoholic beverages?
Gamble in any form?
Use tobacco 0 No Biola University requires abstinence from all these during enrollment (no exceptions).
Biola University has long recognized value in maintaining certain behavioral standards that contribute to the atmosphere on campus, foster fellowship with a wide range of Christians and strengthen our Christian testimony to our community. In this light, Biola University asks both its students and employ ees to be supportive of these behavioral standards. This institution is for earnest Christians who are sensitive to the principles of Christian living found in the Bible. The institution also states certain guidelines for the conduct of the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and students. Although such regulations are not the basis of one's standing in Christ and are not a necessary consequence of it, they can be beneficial to the life and testimony of both the individual and the institution. To this end, Biola expects its members to refrain from gambling and the use of alcoholic beverages and tobacco. Also, Biola does not allow social dancing at university-related or sponsored activities (that is, any activity that involves an identifiable University group, is publicized on-campus, and/or has the appearance of being universi ty-related, whether held on or off campus). Members of the Biola community are expected to exercise discernment and abstain from all activities that tend to be morally degrading. This includes, but is not limited to, individual decisions regarding movies and television programs viewed and other entertain ment, recreational and social activities. Biola University does not presume to be a censoring agency for all activities; however, it does expect tangible evi dence of maturing Christian convictions and discerning judgment from its members. Biola reserves the right to dismiss a student who, in its judgment, does not conform either to the stated regulations governing student conduct or the expressed principles, policies, programs and expectations of the University. These standards apply to the student while enrolled in any of the schools or programs of the University on campus and off campus. Further, these stan dards apply to the Board to Trustees, faculty and staff while part of the Biola community. I have read and understood the statement on the university standards of conduct as summarized above, and I agree to abide by these standards while a student at Biola. (The complete published statement of the standards of conduct can be found in the Student Handbook and the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities which are distributed upon enrollment.)
