                          Preface
It must be recognized that the Christian life is a high and holy calling. If
anyone should strive to live a life which is beyond reproach it is the
Christian. The eyes of the unsaved are continually upon us.

We trust our students to search the New Testament on what it teaches with
regard to personal behavior and devotion to Christian Service.

Those practices that we consider to be inconsistent with the Christian life
should be forsaken. (Titus 2:12, I John 2:15-17).

             Keep your faith and clear conscience. Some men
             have not listened to the conscience and have made
             ruin of their faith. (I Timothy 1:19)

             Then let us no more pass judgment on one another,
             but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or
             hindrance in the way of a brother.         (Romans
             14:13)

It is essential for the functioning of any Christian College as well as the
happiness of its students that certain reasonable regulations be made under
which the student will agree to govern himself/herself. It is necessary for
students to remember that upon applying to the school they have already
committed themselves to maintain all the regulations and standards of the
school.

The following principles of behavior are outlined for the students personal
guidance. We believe that adherence to these regulations will protect the
College and bless our students.




                                     2
       The College Facility
Our facility is an answer to prayer. We are grateful to all those who have
given generously of their time and money so that this facility could be
purchased and maintained. Therefore all students are encouraged to treat it
with respect so that it will remain serviceable well into the future.

A few guidelines need to be outlined here:

1.   Students are to enter the facility, during office hours, through either the
     front or rear main entrances.

2.   The facility will be open from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays. Access
     to the facility at all other times will be through the front door only.

3.   All activities that require use of the facility beyond the regular schedule
     should first be cleared through the Custodian/Maintenance
     Superintendent.

4.   Students may use the photocopier outside the Receptionist’s office. All
     full-time students will be assigned a user number by the Administrative
     Assistant. The rate is $0.10 per copy. Students will be billed once each
     semester.

5.   Your cooperation is required in regulating the temperature of the
     building. This would require your common sense in not leaving
     windows open for extended periods of time during the winter months.

6.   The elevator is primarily for the use of the handicapped and elderly
     rather than daily student use.

7.   Closets on the fourth floor containing bedding are not for student use.

8.   Use of shopping carts: May be used to transport groceries but must be
     returned to the store -- not left on the College property.




                                       3
          Maritime Christian
                           College
      Rules and Guidelines
Maritime Christian College operates and supervises the apartments and single
student dorm rooms found in the facility. The reason for existence is first of
all for MCC students but it should be remembered that not all the residents
are necessarily students at MCC. Each resident is expected to show concern
and respect for all others in the facility. All residents and non-MCC
students are expected to abide by the following regulations.

1. 1st and 2nd year students are required to live in the residence. Exception is
   made for the mature student or those residing in the Charlottetown area.
2. Students are strongly encouraged to socialize in the common areas. There
   will be absolutely no visiting of the opposite sex in rooms, student
   apartments or on male/female floors. Failure to comply with this policy
   will result in immediate expulsion from Maritime Christian College.
3. All visitors must leave before 11:00 pm Sunday through Thursday, Friday
   through Saturday this time is extended to 12:00 am.
4. From Sunday through Thursday all common areas including lounges,
   computer lab and the kitchen are closed after 11:00 pm and there will be
   no cooking after 10:00 pm and the kitchen must be clean by 11:00 pm.
   Friday through Saturday the time in the common areas will be extended to
   12:30 am. After 10:30 pm, residents should be especially careful with
   regard to noise in the hallways and respect the fact that other residents in
   the facility are asleep. The purpose of attending MCC is to prepare our
   lives to serve our Lord. Therefore since all are here to study we strongly
   recommend that all students be in by 12:00 am during the week (Sunday –
   Thursday).
5. The student lounges are for the enjoyment of the students. It is hoped that
   visitors, especially students who are non-residents, will help the resident
   students to keep them neat, tidy, etc., and have pride in what supporters
   have provided for them. The 3rd floor lounge is for males only and the
   4th floor lounge is for females only.



                                       4
6. The female side of the 4th floor is for females only, the male side of the
    4th floor is for males only. There will be no visiting back and forth. The
    door is to be kept closed at all times.
7. Overnight guests must be approved by the Custodian/Maintenance
    Superintendent. A $25 fee per night will be charged based upon room
    availability. The resident who asks for this privilege is responsible for
    their guest. Permission will not be given for anyone to sleep over in the
    common, or the girls or boys lounges.
8. No alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, or illegal drugs are allowed on
    the property or inside the building.
9. Residents must sign out for all overnight absences and sign back in upon
    their return.
10. All residents are expected to do the following:
           a) Keep their rooms neat and tidy.
           b) Wipe down walls, clean tub after use, clean sink after use
           c) Clean up and put away their own dishes after meals.
           d) Use their bulletin boards for items needing to be tacked up,
    “plasti-tac” for anything else.
           e) Adhere to the cleaning schedule for the kitchen and lounge areas.
11. Any resident complaints or questions are to be taken to the Resident
    Assistant who in turn will go to the President.
12. All payments of rooms are expected to be made at the College office.
    Unless previously arranged all payments are expected a semester in
    advance. Students choosing to move out during a semester will forfeit
    any remaining rent. Students are charged a $150.00 security deposit. The
    deposit is refundable only when the student vacates the room, if the room
    is left clean and in order and all keys are returned.
13. No VCR’s or TV’s are allowed in dorm rooms. A VCR is available for
    student’s use in the common lounge. Please use discretion when
    choosing movies.
14. Facility Stewardship
               a) All dorm rooms may be inspected at random by a
                   faculty/staff member and a resident assistant. Stricter
                   attention will be given to the common areas than the dorm
                   rooms but all rooms and apartments will be checked for
                   neatness, cleanliness, needs for repair, etc. Failure to keep
                   your room up to standard will result in a warning, a second
                   violation will result in a $25.00 extra charge and a third
                   violation within the same semester will result in loss of
                   accommodations and all privileges.
               b) Students are responsible for individual damage done within
                   the residence and will be assessed accordingly. General
                   damage not claimed will be assessed against all residents




                                       5
15. Students will be issued a key to the front entrance as well as to their own
    room. These keys are not to be duplicated. Resident students found with
    keys to the facility other than those issued by the College will be asked to
    find other accommodations. A fee of $75.00 will be charged to replace
    any keys. Keys are for resident use only.
16. Due to fire regulations, there is to be absolutely no cooking in the single
    dorm rooms (Microwaves, coffee machines, refrigerators, toaster ovens,
    hot pots, etc.). No candles are allowed in dorm rooms or lounges.
17. There will be no pets of any kind permitted within the facility.
18. Office phones are not to be used by the students or residents, except in the
    case of an emergency. Student messages received by the Receptionist
    will be posted with others, on the student message board. A phone may
    be obtained from the Receptionist for College related activities. The
    following phones are for student use: phone # in the female lounge area is
    902-569-3436, phone # in the male lounge and common lounge areas is
    902-569-3888.
19. The phone at the front door is for the convenience of visitors to gain
    access into the building after office hours. It is also for the use of the
    students and the public to make BRIEF 5-minute calls.
20. Upon leaving residence at the end of the school year, please make
    arrangements to have your mailing address changed with family, friends,
    magazine subscriptions, government checks, UPEI bills, etc.
21. There is a student storage area that is available for RESIDENTS to use
    while staying here. ALL ITEMS ARE TO BE LABELED. The storage
    area is for residents of the College only. Individuals who leave items
    behind when moving out will be reminded of this policy. If they are still
    left, they will become the property of MCC, and items will be removed,
    disposed of, or sold as the College sees fit. All items are to be stored
    neatly and in an organized fashion. Please use the cupboard space that is
    provided for you.
22. It is the responsibility of the resident to ensure and protect his/her
    personal property within the College building. The College does not

28. Residents are not allowed to baby-sit children on the College premises,
    except during Chapel Services.

                            DUE PROCESS

Anyone causing a problem or disobeying regulations will be
cautioned by the Resident Assistant. Continual disobedience will
result in a written warning from the Disciplinary Committee and then
the student, if necessary will be expelled from the College. Any
serious violations of the rules will result in immediate expulsion at the
discretion of the Disciplinary Committee. Should the student feel that
they were treated unjustly they may make written appeal to the
College Board Executive.

         Library Regulations
The library is reserved for study only. Silence must be maintained at all
times. There is a Computer Lab adjacent to the Library equipped with
computers for student use. Proper decorum must be maintained.

Library furnishings demand your respect. Do not mar or mutilate them. The
books are for the use of all students and therefore demand your care as well.
Do not mark or underline in them. For these reasons, EATING AND
DRINKING ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE LIBRARY OR COMPUTER
LAB!

Books must be checked out at the circulation desk with your Student ID
Card. Three weeks will normally be allowed on books. They may be
renewed for another three-week period if no one has requested their use. No
more than ten books should be checked out by one student at a time.

Reserve books shall be under special regulations. Some are to be used within
the library only and others may be checked out within a half hour of library
closing to be kept overnight. Check with library staff for the details of the
reserve book policy. Reference books are meant to be for research IN the
library ONLY. They must not leave the library. If they are removed from
the building, they shall be considered stolen, and, if found in your possession,
a fine of $10.00 shall be imposed.

Stack book; .25 cents per hour for each Reserve book.

All books must be returned to the library at the conclusion of the semester.

                                       8
The Library Arrangement

The Dewey Decimal System is used for cataloging materials in our library.
Our collection now consists of over 10,000 volumes, the majority of which
are focused on our special concern, namely Biblical Christianity. For this
reason, most of the books are catalogued in the 200's of the Dewey System.




                                                                         Cassettes

Classes




   10
Class Load:
A semester hour of credit represents one hour of classroom instruction per
week for one semester. A student is considered full-time if he/she is enrolled
for 12 or more semester hours. A full load of classes is considered to be 15
or more semester hours. A student may not enroll for more than 18 hours
without the permission of the Academic Dean. It is expected that a student
will devote at least 2 hours of study preparation and research for each hour of
classroom instruction.


Bookstore Policy
The Maritime Christian Bookstore (165 Hillsborough Street) is under the
management of Bonnie and Roger May. Textbooks and materials are ordered
through them and made available to the students. Cash sales are encouraged
and appreciated.


University Courses:
Most of our programs beyond the Biblical Studies Certificate include a
number of Liberal Arts courses. These shall normally be taken at MCC,
however they may be taken at UPEI or another university with the permission
of the Academic Dean.


Correspondence Courses:
Up to 9 semester hours, through correspondence courses, may be transferred
from other approved educational institutions to complete a degree from
MCC. These courses are to be completed by the end of the first semester in
the year of graduation. Students must have prior written approval from the
Registrar to take any correspondence courses.

Changes in Class Status:
    1.   Changing courses or withdrawal from courses will be permitted
         without charge up to two weeks from the first day of classes.
    2.   After this period, a "Change of Course" fee of $15.00 will be
         payable a) for any changing of courses, which is allowable for
         another two weeks; or b) for change of status from audit to credit,
         which is allowable until midterm.




                                     11
    3.   Changing status from credit to audit and withdrawal from a course
         are also allowed until mid-term. In both cases a refund of 50 % will
         be credited to the student's account.
    4.   "Mid-term" shall be defined as 4:00 pm on the first weekday of
         November or March.
    5.   An "Application for Change in Class Registration" form must be
         completed for any of the above changes. These forms are to be
         obtained from the Administrative Assistant or Registrar. When it
         has been completed, and signed by the student, the instructor and
         Registrar, it is to be turned into the Administrative Assistant and
         only then will the changes be official. (Be sure to make a copy for
         your records.)


Program Selection:
By the commencement of the second year of study, that is, the completion of
32 semester hours of study, each student must declare the Program of Study
under which they plan to matriculate. The appropriate form is available from
the Administrative Assistant. Any changes in this program will require the
payment of a $25.00 Change of Program Fee.


Internship:
The BA (Bible), BA (General Studies), BA (Child & Youth), BBM and the
Ministerial Diploma programs require an internship during the last two years
of the program. The intern is under the supervision of a designated
supervisor for each of the four semesters (the intern has the freedom to
choose different settings and supervisors for each semester if he/she so
chooses). Each intern will also be supervised by the College as a part of the
entire Internship Program. Internship is a part of the academic program of
the College worth one semester hour credit per semester. Summer
internships may also be available.


Christian Service Program:
The concept of, and participation in student ministries is fundamental to a
Biblically based higher education. Students are given an opportunity to put
classroom theory and knowledge into practice in a congregational venue
enabling them, first hand, to become aware of and involved in the service of
others. The Christian Service Program is a supervised field of education,
which includes a faculty mentor and local leadership.



                                     12
The Goals of the Christian Service Program include
       regular weekly attendance for all students
       completion of ministry activities for leadership growth
       participation in all College service activities
       interaction with mentor in completion of ministry activities and
       forms

The Purpose of the Christian Service Program is
       to assist the student’s growth and ministry skills
       to involve the student in active ministry
       to discover the student’s ministry interests
       to develop the student’s self-motivation and group participation
       to develop the student’s maturity and Christian character
       to gain a servant’s heart for ministry

Procedures for individual service with a local congregation
       the Christian Education Resource Director will contact local
       congregations to assess any needs that can be met by a MCC student
       the College Faculty will match each student with a congregation
       each student will submit an evaluation form each month for every
       ministry activity completed.
       the student will participate at least three hours per week

Credit criteria (students will be issued a P/F grade each semester). Each
student taking twelve or more credit hours is required to participate
fully in the Program. The Christian Service Program is worth 1 credit
hour per semester. To pass each semester a student must
     1. turn in evaluations and reports as required
     2. attend chapel services each week
     4. attend Sunday morning worship services with the local congregation
     5. complete four ministry activities per semester (see page 11 *)
     6. participate and cooperate in all College service activities

Exceptions due to illness etc. must be submitted in writing.


* Ministry Skills Activities

Ministry Skills are necessary for all types of Christian service. Students are
given training in multiple areas in order to aid them in fulfilling their
Christian service.




                                      13
Examples of ministry skills include teaching Sunday School, communion
thought, worship leading – see Christian Education Resource Director for
complete list.

Students are given the following
         specific instruction in a specific ministry skill
         each student is placed under a short-term mentoring relationship
         each student will be given feedback on their short-term ministry
         skill

Criteria for completing ministry skills
          four ministry skills will be completed per semester (for all students
          with twelve or more credit hours)
          each student will complete an evaluation and report of the ministry
          skill in conjunction with the mentor

Ministry skills modeling
         each student will be shown how to complete the assigned task
         each student will be given the opportunity to participate in the
         assigned task with monitoring
         each student will be given a greater responsibility in the ministry
         skill with the mentor’s support
         each student will complete the ministry skill on their own


Attendance:
The faculty of the College believe that attendance and participation in the
classes are essential ingredients in your education. Therefore, we feel a
policy is necessary in order to reinforce this aspect of College life.

1.   Three "lates," arriving in class after the teacher has filled the register at
     the start of class, shall count as one absence. Arriving more than 15
     minutes late or leaving 15 minutes early shall be recorded as an absence.
2.   Absences from the last session of each class before holidays and other
     scheduled events or from the first session afterwards shall receive a
     double penalty.
3.   The equivalent of one week of class time shall be allowed without any
     penalty. The equivalent of a second week of class time may be allowed
     without any penalty provided make-up assignments are completed by no
     later than one month after the date of notification. If the assignments are
     not completed by this date there is a penalty of 3 % points for each hour
     of class time missed. The equivalent of a third week of class time shall
     be allowed but with a penalty of 3 % points for each hour of class time
     missed.

4.   The total allowable absences shall be the equivalent of three weeks of
     classes. Absences in excess of this shall result in a final grade of F for
     the course. This includes all absences whatever the reason, except those
     resulting from College-related activities which have been approved by
     the Academic Dean ahead of time and which will not be penalized.
5.   Written notification shall be given to the student after each accumulation
     of a week's worth of absences.
6.   Any class assignments due must be submitted on or before the day of the
     absence.
7.   Students who persist in absenteeism and thus fail more than one course
     as a result shall not be allowed to remain in College.
8.   Any exceptions to the above policy must be made by written request to
     the Academic Dean. This will apply especially with regard to family
     deaths or extended illnesses.
9.   No food will be allowed in the classroom and beverages will be allowed
     only at the discretion of the teacher. All garbage must be cleaned up
     following class.
10. All students are required to place all waste in appropriate containers.
11. Appropriate dress is required to attend class.

2.   Withdrawal from a course after the initial two-week period will result in
     a grade of WP or WF.
          a. If a student withdraws prior to mid-term and is doing passing
              work, a grade of WP shall be given.
          b. Withdrawal after mid-term shall result in a grade of WF for that
              course, except for extenuating circumstances, in which a WP
              may be given.
          c. Unofficial withdrawal from a course at any time shall result in a
              grade of WF.


Assignments:
All assignments are due at the time of the final exam or as previously
required by the instructor in the course syllabus. Requests for extensions will
be granted only




                                      17
due to dire circumstances and even then are subject to the discretion of the
class instructor.


Expulsion:
Students expelled from the College will receive a grade of “F” for all their
courses in that semester. The date of the expulsion will be noted in the
student’s academic transcript.


Academic Probation:
There is an expectation that a student will achieve a certain minimum of
academic standard per semester. The following scale outlines these
expectations:
         1.00 after 1st semester    1.33 after 2nd semester
         1.67 after 3rd semester    2.00 after 4th semester

1. Students whose average falls below the above in any semester will be
placed on academic probation for the
    following semester and may be required to lengthen the time for
completing the remainder of their program.

2.   Students on academic probation are not permitted to take more than 10
     hours of course work in any semester unless approved by the Academic
     Dean.

3.   Students on academic probation must terminate their programs at the end
     of that semester if the probationary status is not removed or extended by
     achieving an average for the semester equal to or higher than that
     required. Exceptions must be approved by the Academic Dean.

4.   At the end of each semester, students on academic probation are
     considered by the Academic Dean, in consultation with the faculty if
     necessary, for the purpose of determining their future academic status.


Format of Research Papers:
All papers for Maritime Christian College shall be written and submitted
according to the MCC guidelines, Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of
Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations. Copies are on reserve in the Library
at MCC and copies may be purchased from the U.P.E.I. Bookstore.
Academic Dishonesty:

                                     18
Maritime Christian College endeavors to prepare men and women for
Christian service. As part of that endeavor, students are expected to uphold a
high level of honesty in their personal and academic lives. Acts of
plagiarism, cheating, or other forms of academic dishonesty may result in
failure of the assignment, the course or possibly dismissal from the school.

     a) Plagiarism. The student who deliberately attempts to pass off the
         writing of someone else as his or her own is guilty of plagiarism.
         This offense can be of different degrees. It may involve either
         submission of a paper written by someone else or direct copying,
         without quotation marks and appropriate acknowledgment of the
         printed source.
                  1.   Insufficient Documentation. Honesty and courtesy
                       require that a writer acknowledge the source from
                       which he or she draws material. This documentation
                       provides both an acknowledgment of source and also
                       support for their ideas. Insufficient or inaccurate
                       documentation is a serious weakness in a paper. It will
                       certainly result in a lower grade, or a rewriting of the
                       paper, or if serious enough, a failure of the paper. The
                       mark of zero will be given and the paper returned. It
                       should be remembered that inadequate paraphrasing or
                       closely following another’s thoughts is the same as
                       plagiarism.
                  2. Excessive Collaboration. Students are expected to do
                     their own work. Naturally students will discuss their
                     work with other students but excessive collaboration is
                     objectionable. Submitting another person’s work as
                     one’s own is absolutely prohibited. Such a practice
                     will result in an F for the assignment and may well
                     result in a failure for the course.
     b) Cheating on exams is academic dishonesty. Those students who aid
        another student in the cheating process also have performed
        academic dishonesty.
     c) Other forms of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to,
        dishonesty concerning one’s personal information or conduct; theft
        of another person’s property; or the pirating of software.




                                      19
Transfer of Credits:
A candidate for a degree from Maritime Christian College must earn at least
sixty-four semester hours of credit from the MCC curriculum. The final
thirty-two hours must be taken as a resident student at Maritime Christian
College (Approved university and/or correspondence courses may form up to
50 % of this final year's work).

   Student
Activities and
Responsibilities




       21
Assistance for Students:
The Director of Admissions is available to speak with students and offer
assistance regarding any aspect of College life. All Faculty are willing to
offer confidential counseling for students with personal problems.
Confidence will be kept as long as the student is making sufficient progress
or until the situation is serious enough to warrant outside consultation.



Chapel:
Wednesdays at 12:00 pm we meet for an hour of sharing in song and
exhortation. All students are required to be present and participate as part of
the Christian Service Program. Attendance will be taken. This is followed
by a lunch shared together. Students are asked to assist in chapel through
involvement in singing, prayer, scripture reading, etc. Students also assist in
preparation for the meal and cleaning up afterwards; teams are assigned and
posted along with responsibilities.



Convocation and Commencement:
At the beginning and close of each school year, special services are held.
Students are expected to be present for these times and may be called upon to
sing, pray, usher, etc., for the services.



Financial Obligations:
1.   Students are reminded that tuition and other fees are intentionally kept
     very low so that all who desire a Christian education may obtain it
     without undue financial stress. Actually the fees provide only a small
     portion of the total cost of operating the College. The major portion
     comes from the gifts of individuals and churches who faithfully support
     this Christian endeavor.
2.   Students are expected to pay all bills upon enrollment. Otherwise, any
     delay in payment must be approved by the President. The College offers
     financial assistance as stated in our Catalogue.
3.   An interest charge of 1% per month will be charged to each outstanding
     student account.
4.   A degree or diploma will not be granted, nor will an official transcript be
     issued, until the student takes care of all financial obligations with the
     College.



                                      22
Insurance:
All full-time students have the option to enroll in the College health and
accident insurance plan which provides protection 24 hours a day, anywhere
in the world and in all normal activities. Optional life insurance is also
available. It is the responsibility of the resident/student to insure and
protect his/her personal property within the College building.           The
College does not insure any personal belongings in the case of damage or lost
items.

All students traveling with the College for choir, music groups, drama or
ministry teams are also required to sign waiver forms releasing the College of
liability should anything happen while traveling with College groups or
representing MCC.



K.T. Norris Annual Lectureship – January:
All students are required to attend the week of lectures. The lectures may
also be taken for one semester hour of credit. If a student decides to register
for credit, they should do so at the beginning of the second semester.



Physical Appearance:
Students are required to maintain appropriate dress while at the College,
which reflects respect toward their own person and toward God. Students are
required to dress appropriately for class or when visiting public areas in the
building (for example: pajamas and night clothing should be worn only on
resident floors). With the popularity of body piercing today, we ask that you
limit piercing to the ears. We expect students to monitor their own dress,
however it will be drawn to your attention if something inappropriate is
worn.

Students are required to dress up for chapel and worship services, which
reflect Christian character. This means that ripped jeans, sweats or caps, etc.
are not acceptable. If you are participating, men are expected to wear a shirt
and tie; the women, a dress or skirt.

Those students who are representing the College should maintain a high level
of dress as this reflects upon themselves and the school.




                                      23
Physical Education:
The main recreation time has centered around volleyball, basketball and
hockey. A physical education period is scheduled weekly at the UPEI gym.
All full-time students are expected to participate and to pay the necessary
Sports Center membership fee each semester. Part-time students are given
the option. Students must pay to obtain a UPEI Campus Card.



Service Week/Tour
During the second semester, the week after final exams is our annual service
week/tour. All students are required to participate in order to complete their
Christian Service credit or Internship Program.



Student Association:
At the commencement of each school year the students are urged to form a
student association.       This consists of electing a president/board
representative, vice-president/activities coordinator, and secretary/treasurer
from the students. This organization will assist the students in several areas
of activity throughout the school year. This association is not a popularity
contest but one of Christian Service. The activities of the association are
overseen by the Director of Admissions, who attends all meetings in order to
lend advice and give guidance.



Worship and Service:
When the church assembles for study and worship on Sunday mornings ALL
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN ATTENDANCE!                              It is
inconsistent to think or claim that one is training in Christian development
and does not attend meetings when God's family gathers. A student will be
placed on probation for continual missing of services.
