If you’re not sure you are eligible for a chapel exemption, read the general attendance expectations and check the information for specific groups. If you have questions, please speak with someone in the Student Life & Discipleship office.
To request a chapel exemption for permission to not attend chapel on a regular basis throughout the semester, you will need to submit an exemption request. Choose the Recurring Exemption option when filling out the request.
Returning students, use your BJU login and password. New students, log in using the login name and password on your admission certificate.
You can track the status of requests you have submitted on your exemptions dashboard, which is accessible by typing exemptions.bju.edu into your browser.
For a single chapel absence, submit an exemption ahead of time or contact a staff member in the Student Life & Discipleship office. If the absence is unexpected, contact Student Life & Discipleship before chapel begins or as soon as possible afterward. Please note these policies regarding occasional chapel absences.
