Student Right to Know
Word of Life Bible Institute Retention Rate*^
|Program||2021-2022||2020-2021||2019-2020||3 Year Average|
|2-Year Bible Diploma||36%||38%||29.8%||34.6%|
*Retention rate is calculated from fall-to-fall based on first-time, full-time status. For our program, it is the percentage of first-time, full-time students who entered the freshmen year of the program in the fall who enroll the following fall in the sophomore year of the program.
^When retention rates are calculated including both first-time AND non-first-time full-time students, they exceed 50%. Please note, students can graduate after one year with a Bible certificate and choose not to continue into the second year, which reduces conventionally calculated retention rates.
Word of Life Bible Institute Graduation Rates**
|Program||2019 Cohort||2018 Cohort||2017 Cohort||Average|
|Bible Certificate (1 year) or Diploma (2 years)||75%||86%||78%||79.7%|
**The completion/graduation rates for our certificate and diploma programs are measured at 150% of the expected time for completion. The percentages are a combined percentage for students graduating with either a Bible Certificate (1 year of study) or a Bible diploma (2 years of study).
GRIEVANCE POLICY, CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS (FERPA), AND TITLE IX POLICY
CANCELLATION/TERMINATION/DISMISSAL AND REFUND POLICY
Students are not permitted to withdraw from the regularly scheduled courses of the Institute. Students may withdraw from electives before the second class without a penalty. Students withdrawing from the Bible Institute are required to see the Dean of Men/Women, Business Manager, and Registrar for processing. Failure to do so may result in the student being issued F’s for all coursework taken during the current marking period. Keys and ID cards need to be turned in at the time of withdrawal. When calculating the refund due to a student, the last date of actual attendance by the student is used in the calculation, unless earlier written notice was received. Should a student’s enrollment be terminated during the semester or cancelled for any reason, the school will issue refunds according to the following schedule:
FIRST WEEK 100% SECOND WEEK 85% THIRD WEEK 70% FOURTH WEEK 55% FIFTH WEEK 40% SIXTH WEEK 25%
After the sixth week of the semester, no refunds are awarded for tuition, fees, and room. Board will be adjusted according to remaining weeks in the billing period. All refunds will be processed within 30 days and forwarded either to the student’s permanent address or, in the case of student loans, to the lender. All federal, state and institutional financial aid will be refunded according to current policies. I agree to comply with the rules and policies as outlined in the catalog. I understand that the school reserves the right to modify the rules and regulation, and that I will be advised of any and all modifications.
