Expectations

  5. Each full-time student is expected to spend at least 8 hours per week studying and completing assigned homework in order to review and come prepared to class for next lesson.
  6. Each full-time student is expected to take all level required tests attaining an average score of 70% or more.
  7. All students are expected to abide by standards of morality in dress and behavior which build up a positive reputation for themselves and the believing Christian community.
  8. Students are expected to attend every class.
  9. It is recommended that students attend a language and cultural acquisition program before arriving in Jordan.
  10. It is recommended that students bring with them a device capable of recording audio (i.e., smart-phone).
