When a student decides to come to AIC, it should be because of a conviction that this college will be the best way to prepare for one’s future life and ministry. Enrollment at AIC is a voluntary decision on the part of the student, but it is a privilege, not a right. The continued enrollment of each student is conditional upon adherence to the community’s standards of conduct. The Student Handbook communicates the accepted standards of behavior for the College. AIC’s standards of conduct are drawn from numerous sources:
1. There are things Christians do, or don’t do because God’s Word speaks plainly to the issue(s). Where the Bible is clear in its instructions, the College’s expectations will be equally plain. AIC prohibits practices that are
clearly forbidden by the Word of God. The Scriptures teach that some practices can do harm to both the individual and to other members of the Christian community. Some standards of conduct are based on this principle, even though the specific behaviors addressed may not be explicitly mentioned
2. There are other decisions that individuals make based on their experience, or the experience of others. By enrolling at AIC, a student acknowledges that (s)he intends to learn from the wisdom of others, and therefore recognizes that others, in roles of authority, may make choices that (s)he would not. The student is expected to use discretion, discernment, and restraint in the selection of live entertainment, as well as electronic and print media (1 Corinthians 10:23-24). Our lives should be characterized by clean conduct and conversation, modest apparel, and a deep consecration and devotion to spiritual life. All behavior of students must reflect moral purity.
3. There are also things to which Christians agree for the purpose of peace. All have rights that are willingly deferred for the greater good of the community. In order for people to live together, they must agree on certain issues of daily living. The observance of these guidelines does not totally reflect one’s spiritual maturity; however, a willingness to adhere to the agreements portrays a spiritual concern for other Christians. Certainly, Christians strive to fulfill the law of love as is set forth in Galatians 5 and Romans 14 & 15.
Students are to accept individual responsibility for appropriate dress. A student must demonstrate a mature attitude in dress and appearance while attending classes and extra-curricular activities, both on and off campus. (Please see current revision of The Student Handbook for specific guidelines.)
Wholesome social relationships are both desirable and fitting for men and women preparing for Christian service. Many lasting friendships are made while attending college. The administration, however, discourages thoughtless engagements and premature marriages. The Student Handbook gives guidelines and requirements for dating and engagement.
Students desiring to bring vehicles on campus must receive permission from the Dean of Students. The student must provide the College with a copy of the following: current adequate liability insurance, valid vehicle registration, and current driver’s license.
Vehicles shall be operated in compliance with federal, state, and local laws and within the College guidelines. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action by the College. In the event of an accident, the driver and owner will be responsible for the damage and/or injury. Under no circumstances will the College be liable for said damage and/or injury either on or off campus.
Each student is responsible for his or her personal property, including clothing, radios, stereo equipment, CD’s, tapes, etc. AIC does not carry insurance to cover the loss of or damage to the private property of students, faculty, or staff.
AIC is in compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act, as amended by Pub.L.102-26, the Higher Education Technical Amendments of 1991. Information on campus crime statistics is maintained by the Vice President for Student Development Office and is available by contacting that office. Any questions or concerns regarding this should be directed to the Vice President of Student Development.
