General Policies

The right of sharing in the privileges of Ivy Christian College involves corresponding responsibilities.
These include the recognition of the authority of the administration and faculty of Ivy and the Board of Trustees of Ivy over all procedures, policies and guidelines in governing the ICC.

Ivy seeks to maintain high standards of integrity in academic work, in ministry, and in community
relationships.
These standards of integrity are expected to be met by students, faculty, and staff and are stated
here for self-discipline and support by all members of Ivy Christian College.
Each of us may expect from the other absolute honesty in all relationships, responsibilities, and tasks; integrity and good stewardship in all financial obligations and dealings; conscientious concern for each other in matters of personal habits, attitudes, and actions; demonstration of a spirit which recognizes the Lordship of Christ and expresses the biblical concept of love for God and man; a caring attitude toward others; an appreciation of the facilities of Ivy and a custodial concern for maintaining both its natural and physical facilities.
The maintenance of appropriate personal standards while members of the community, is expected.
The use of alcohol, tobacco and non-prescription drugs on campus is not permitted.
Ivy also believes that the biblical standards for human sexuality clearly prescribe a heterosexual relationship within the context of marriage, or sexual chastity for those who are single.
Students are expected to conform to these standards and give clear evidence of their Christian life and character so as to commend the Gospel, strengthen the church and honor the Lord. Evidence of conspicuous or persistent failures in moral responsibility will lead to disciplinary action which may result in suspension or dismissal from the faculty, staff or student body.
Specifics for faculty are outlined in the Faculty Handbook, and details for students are given below.

STUDENT HANDBOOK
All ICC student could download ICC Student Handbook on ICC website. When the Student Handbook is revised, it is announced on ICC website.
Because we at Ivy are a Christian community as well as an educational institution, our family life together is governed by a code of conduct.
This is done so that we may be able to function together in harmony, that we may preserve a good testimony, and that we may each develop good habits of Christian discipline.

Moderation in the manner of dress is a safe guide for Ivy students.
Casual dress is acceptable in the classroom so long as it is neat and modest.
Students are to dress appropriately and in good taste at all times.
