STUDENT POLICIES

STUDENT AFFAIRS

Under the guidance of the VP for Administration, the Student Affairs Department is responsible for the general body life of ACTS. At ACTS we seek to create the type of atmosphere in which each student is cared for and feels a part of the family. This involves providing certain services or programs which are explained below.  The ACTS management would like you to be assured that our doors are always open to you.  If you are having difficulties adjusting to school life, having financial or family problems, or if you just want to talk, please see your student officers or the appropriate ACTS authority.

 

 

Student Character

The overriding purpose for all that we do is our concern for the character development of each student.  No student wants to leave ACTS with just increased academic knowledge about God.  Rather he/she wants to be godlier.  We know that character development is a sensitive issue and dependent upon the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  However, we do believe there are some things we can do to encourage such growth.

To ensure that this growth is taking place, students will undergo an evaluation review before entering their final year to assess their performance in academic, ministry, and character areas of their lives.  Should students be found lacking any of these areas, they will be placed on probation for that year.  Graduation will be contingent upon the student’s ability to evidence sufficient growth in the life areas found needing improvement.

 

Student Government

Purpose: The purpose of the Student Government at ACTS is to represent the Student Body to the faculty and administration in all matters that pertain to the spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical welfare of the students.  The student Government also works closely with the student Affairs Committee to plan extra curricular activities and to make recommendations that promote the welfare of the school.

 

Election of the Student Council Officers

Elected positions include:

  • President
  • Vice-president
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Public Relations Officer

 

In cases where students enroll in the school in batches, batch or year representatives may also be elected to the council.

All officers are elected for a term of one year and elections are held during the second semester of each academic year.  Only degree students who are in good standing (i.e. not on academic probation or having overdue fees) may hold office in the Student council, including the chairmanship of any committee.

 

Student Life

Chapel Time: Each week, during the quarterly sessions, ACTS will hold chapel on Wednesday from 11:15-12:00 noon to help foster spiritual growth. This time will include a teaching from scripture and prayer for the ministry of the school and students. The format and content may vary and setting may be informal. Students are expected to participate and will have opportunities to lead various aspects of Chapel.

The student council could have the following committees:

  1. Chapel Committee
  2. Social Committee
  3. Outreach Committee
  4. Ad hock committees (for special assignment)
