It is assumed that each student who enrolls at Vine University will be in accord with the school’s aims and will cooperate in furthering these purposes by adhering to the regulations governing student behavior. Vine University expects all of its students and employees to abide by the highest standards of moral and ethical behavior in harmony with its Christian philosophy and purposes.
Vine University reserves the right to refuse admittance to or to suspend any person who violates principles. Furnishing false information to the school with prior knowledge, forgery, alterations, or misuse of any Vine University documents are violations of these principles.
A student violating any regulation of Vine University intentionally and continuously will be disciplined. Any student whose GPA is below 2.0 on the 4.0 scale will be placed on probation. Any student whose moral conduct violates Christian principles will be disciplined. This includes, but is not limited to: cheating, plagiarism, drunkenness, sexual assault, physical violence, adultery, homosexual conduct, and stealing. Discipline will be administered through the Student Discipline Committee.
There are four categories of discipline: warning, probation, suspension, and dismissal. Appropriate demonstration of Christian character is a requirement for graduation.
