7 p. m. to 10:30 p. m. is meant for study and students must not
waste their time nor that of others in idleness or frivolity.
Students will be permitted to go to town on Saturday from
4 to 6 p. m., and on Monday.
Girls who are unable physically to live in the homes for girls
will not be accepted.
The use of alcoholic drinks, cards, profanity, vulgarity, and
other such vices will not be tolerated on the campus at any time.
If you have been indulging in these things and are not willing
to leave them off do not come to Abilene Christian College.
Otherwise you will be promptly dismissed.
Attending balls, card parties, pool rooms, or other such
places of amusement as are calculated to interfere with studious
habits and good morals, is prohibited.
Regular and punctual attendance of all pupils at chapel and
classes is absolutely necessary and therefore required. Any disposition
on the part of any student to "cut" class or chapel
will be regarded by the college as a serious breach of its regulations.
Every absence from class or chapel will be reported to
the registrar the same day that it occurs. The student may offer
an excuse in writing for his absence, and if the Dean approves
it the absence will be an excused absence, otherwise it is an unexcused
absence. When any student has as many as three unexcused
absences the registrar shall immediately notify the instructor
to drop the student's name from the class roll. To be
reinstated the student must pay a fee of $1.00 to the Bursar and
then pass a creditable examination upon the work missed.
Excuses will not be considered unless they are submitted to
the Dean for consideration within a period of three days after the
absence period. Unexcused chapel absences will, at the discretion
of the Dean, lower the student's standing.
Absences excused or unexcused may at the discretion of the
instructor cause a student's grade to be lowered. The instructor
is asked to keep an accurate record of class attendance both as
to tardies and absences whether excused or unexcused, and these
will be reported to the registrar at the close of the quarter to be
placed on the student's permanent record card. If the record
shows that the student has been absent from the class as much as
one-tenth of the number of times he is due his term hours credit
may, at the discretion of the Dean, be reduced by twenty per cent,
