Information for Specific Groups

PGS students 
A graduate taking only one course as a post graduate special student and not working on a degree is exempt from chapel and all other non-academic attendance requirements.

Please contact the dean of students’ administrative assistant in the Student Life & Discipleship office if you fit this designation.


Auditing a course does not negate a student’s chapel requirement.

Spouse audit plan
Spouses taking courses on the spouse audit plan are not required to attend chapel or other activities since these courses are not toward a degree.


Evening classes
Students taking only evening classes are exempt from all non-academic attendance requirements.

Please contact the dean of students’ administrative assistant in the Student Life & Discipleship office if you fit this designation.


Senior citizens
Senior citizens (age 65 or older) who are members of the BJU Alumni Association may take classes in residence for half price. Classes may be audited or taken for credit. There are no additional attendance requirements.

Please contact the dean of students’ administrative assistant in the Student Life & Discipleship office if you fit this designation.


Dual enrollment students (high school students taking university classes)
A local high school student (non-BJA) taking university classes in residence is exempt from all non-academic attendance requirements (for example, opening exercises, chapel, programs, convocations, forums). A BJA student taking university classes will be expected to attend chapel and other programs according to BJA requirements.

Please contact the dean of students’ administrative assistant in the Student Life & Discipleship office if you fit this designation.


Education Students on the Block
The block is 15 hours of credit taken in two weeks, and students who are on the block are expected to be in chapel daily and to attend all other required campus activities that do not conflict with their student teaching schedule.
