Any student not maintaining a 2.0 grade point average will be placed on academic probation for the following semester. If the student continues after that period to maintain less than a 2.0 grade point average, he may be temporarily suspended or permanently dismissed from the college.
Temporary suspension or permanent dismissal for academic reasons will be determined by the Dean of Academics and will be based on the continued failure of the student to maintain the minimal academic standards. The Dean of Academics may, at his discretion, elect to dismiss a student at any time for poor academic performance.
Repeating a course is permitted, but credit is granted only once. In the case of a course having been failed and then repeated and passed, the higher grade will replace the F and be used in re-computing the grade point average. Students may not repeat a course for credit that they have previously passed.
At the end of each semester, the Dean of Academics publishes an Honor Roll of students taking 9 or more credits who have earned a grade point average of 3.50.
At the end of each semester, the Dean of Academics publishes a Dean's List of students taking 9 or more credits who have earned a grade point average of 3.75 or higher.
Associate Degree is awarded to students who successfully complete all of the required courses for the Associate Degree and a minimum of 60 credit hours. At a minimum, the students last 15 credit hours achieved must have been completed at Tacoma Bible College.
Bachelor Degrees are awarded to students who successfully complete all of the required courses and a minimum or 120 credit hours. At a minimum, the last 30 credit hours achieved must have been completed at Tacoma Bible College.
Students who desire to graduate from Tacoma Bible College, and have successfully completed the required courses for a particular Associate or Bachelor Degree program, and have a maximum of 15 credit hours remaining to complete may apply for application by completing the Graduation Application Form available in the Administrative Office. The student will be contacted by the office of the Dean of Academics to schedule an appointment to review the student's transcripts, and current course load. The Dean of Academics may then recommend the student to begin the graduation process. The Dean of Academics may make a final recommendation for graduation after the student has successfully passed the oral graduation examination, and successfully completed the remaining courses and credits required of the degree program.
