rpose Practical Ministry Experience Integration of academic learning and practical experience is a vital element of education at New Hope Christian College. The College requires student involvement in ministry during each semester of enrollment. This practical experience enables the student to apply principles learned in the classroom and gives opportunity for developing ministry skills and serving others. Additionally, all concentrations require an extended field experience during which the student can learn and grow in a hands-on experience under the guidance of a qualified supervisor. Discipleship Implicit in NHCC’s mission statement is the goal of promoting students’ development of Christian character, personal integrity and spiritual maturity. The College intentionally provides an environment and specific opportunities for students to be discipled and directed in personal spiritual growth. Classroom teaching, weekly devotional groups, student activities and standards, and interaction between faculty and students in the campus community facilitate this growth.

istory

Through the ministry of Fred Hornshuh, Sr. and others in the early 1920s, spiritual revival came to the greater Eugene area in Oregon, giving birth to several congregations that later organized under the name of Bible Standard Churches. In response to the emerging need for training for those being called to preach, Bible Standard Theological School was begun in January 1925 with Hornshuh as its first president. Classes initially met in Lighthouse Temple, but by 1948 the school occupied its own building at Twelfth and Olive in Eugene. In 1940, the school began to offer a full-time day program.

rpose In 1967, ground breaking at the present location on Bailey Hill Road prepared the way for development of the campus. Since that time, construction of an administration building, classrooms, a student center, resource center, dormitories and other student housing have resulted in the attractive and accessible campus that welcomes students today. The Rexius Event Center, incorporating a gym, a chapel and other facilities was completed in 2008.

11

Concurrent with campus expansion has been the development of the academic program of the College. The College first offered fouryear programs in 1974 and was offered degree-granting authority by the State of Oregon in 1976. In 1983, the college was granted accreditation with the Association for Biblical Higher Education.

St a te m e n t

The College subscribes to the Articles of Faith of Open Bible Churches, Inc. Briefly composed, we believe that:

• The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the only infallible guide and rule of faith and practice.

• God, the personal creator of the universe, eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

• Man, who was divinely created in the image of God, willfully

transgressed God’s law and incurred both physical and spiritual death as a result. Henceforth, all of mankind is born with a sinful nature and is subject to the same penalty at the age of accountability.

• The Lord Jesus Christ submitted Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of mankind.

12

• The Lord arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and is •

interceding for mankind as High Priest and Advocate in His present life. The second coming of Jesus Christ will be personal, visible, and triumphant. All persons will be resurrected bodily: the just to eternal happiness and security with God, and the unjust to everlasting punishment in hell.

• Since man is unable to save himself, salvation comes by grace alone received through faith in Christ as Savior on the basis of godly repentance.

• The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a definite experience distinct from salvation, given to endue the believer with power from God, to offer an inspired witness for Christ, to lead the believer in a life of holiness, and to equip for a Spirit-filled life of service. Consistent with biblical accounts, believers should anticipate Spirit-baptism to be accompanied by speaking in tongues and other biblical manifestations.

• Divine healing, provided for in the atonement, is available to

mankind in every age and is granted according to God’s will in answer to believing prayer.

• The great commission of Christ is literal and imperative today.

To carry out a program of world evangelism is both the duty and supreme privilege of the Church.

New Hope Christian College offers courses that encompass five areas of emphasis through the use of today’s innovative technology:

Theology: The foundation and core of why NHCC exists - to train students how to practically and academically study and teach the Word of God. Every student majors in Bible and theology and selects a concentration. A full third of a student’s academic load comprises general and specific courses on the Bible and theology.

Ministry Leadership: Developing leaders for ministry and the marketplace is central to every element on campus. Practical experience by contributing to a local ministry is key to developing leadership skills for our students. Creative Arts: Communicating the Gospel through redeeming various media is part of how NHCC is changing what “church” looks like. Students learn new ways to communicate biblical concepts and ideas through fresh approaches to video, musical and dramatic presentation.

20

Business & Ethics: Whether a student intends to pursue a career in vocational ministry or in the marketplace, it is key that they understand foundational ethics and business concepts. General Education: Our undergraduate degrees intergrate a full battery of general education to round out our students’ experiences. As students go on to pursue further education or employment, they will have the building blocks for a successful future.

An academic advisor assigned to each freshman or transfer student is actively involved in providing direction regarding program requirements and course selection throughout the student’s enrollment at NHCC.

Academic Load

jou

The average number of academic hours in the usual student load is 1516 exclusive of intramural sports. Those who plan to graduate in four years must average 15-16 hours each semester. Students registering for 12 hours or more are classified as full-time, those registering for fewer than 12 as part-time. Students who find it necessary to work full-time or nearly so at outside employment may be required to reduce their academic load according to performance. Those wishing to participate in extracurricular activities such as ministry teams and college athletics are required to maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. Student may not enroll for more than 20 semester hours of academic credit in any one semester, including ESP courses, without the express permission and approval of the Academic Dean.


Class Attendance Regular punctual attendance is required in all classes and assembly periods. Students should never miss a class except for illness or unavoidable emergency situations. To accommodate such cases, a student may have one absence for each credit hour of the course without penalty. However, if absences for any class exceed twice the number of credit hours, the student automatically fails the class. Students entering the class within 15 minutes after attendance check are recorded as tardy. Every three tardy entries are counted as one absence. Work situations and other campus schedules must be held as secondary to class attendance. Students are not permitted to arrive late for class or leave early to accommodate other schedules. Change of Class Schedule Students who wish to change their registration after class instruction has begun must do so through the Registrar. After the first five school days, a fee of $5 is charged for each change. After five school days, no additions may be made, including a change to audit.

67

Students who withdraw from a class after 10 school days, but before the beginning of the fifth week receive a grade of W (withdrawal) for the course. Students who withdraw after the fourth week receive a grade of WP (withdrawal pass) if they are doing passing work, or F if they are failing. Students who discontinue class attendance without notifying the Registrar are given a grade of UWF (unofficial withdrawal failure). Such withdrawals are assessed tuition and fees computed at ten days from the last day of attendance. The last day that students may withdraw from a class is the Friday two weeks prior to final exam week. All registration changes are accomplished through the Registrar.

Grades and Grade Points

A record of student grades for each semester becomes a part of permanent college records. Grades for the most recently completed semester are released to students at the conclusion of each semester. The following symbols are used to indicate the evaluation of course work: A 93-100 B- 80-82 D+ 67-69 A- 90-92 C+ 77-79 D 63-66 B+ 87-89 C 73-76 D- 60-62 B 83-86 C- 70-72 F 59-below P - Pass NP - No Pass W - Withdrawal before fifth week of semester WP - Withdrawal passing after fourth week of semester WF - Withdrawal failing after fourth week of semester UWF - Unofficial withdrawal failure I - Incomplete (see following) R - Course Repeated

NHCC

catalog

The grades of WF and UWF are computed in the GPA. The grades of P, NP and W are not computed in the GPA. The grade of “I” indicates that the student did not complete the work assigned for a course because of absence from school during the last two weeks of the semester due to illness or other allowable emergency. It indicates that the student has been attending class and has done satisfactory work to the time of the emergency situation. Courses in which students received incompletes must be completed by the last day of final exam week in the semester following. If the work is not completed by that time, the grade “I” remains permanently on the transcript. The incomplete is authorized by the course instructor. A fee of $5 per course is assessed for the removal of an incomplete.

Academic Probation

Students are given every help and encouragement to earn satisfactory grades. A 2.0 GPA (C average) is the minimum academic requirement for eligibility for a degree. Students whose semester GPA falls below the following minimums for each grade classification will be placed on academic probation: Freshman 1.80 Sophomore 1.90 Junior and Senior 2.00

Such students are removed from academic probation when they raise their semester GPA above these minimums. Academic Restriction

70

Students whose cumulative GPA falls below the minimum standards are placed on academic restriction and must reduce their hours to 12 or fewer for the following semester or semesters. Such students may be reinstated to regular status by raising their cumulative GPA to the minimum standard for each classification. Those subject to academic restriction for two consecutive semesters must subsequently discontinue enrollment for at least one semester or be approved for remedial restriction by the Academic Dean unless they can substantiate that marked progress has been made. Students approved for remedial restriction must reduce their class hours to six or less. If marked progress is not made during that semester (a 2.00 GPA at least), the student must discontinue enrollment for the subsequent semester. If marked progress is made during the remedial semester, the student may remain on regular academic restriction until the cumulative GPA is at 2.00 or higher. Students academically disqualified for enrollment may appeal to the Admissions Committee to request readmission after an absence of one semester. A student may be approved for remedial restriction one time only.

2013-2015

Students are permitted to see their official records upon request to the Registrar. Exception is made in the case of personal evaluations previously waived.


Auditing Persons not wishing academic credit for a course may arrange to audit through the office of the registrar. Regular class attendance, the completing of assignments, and the taking of examinations are not required of audit students nor does the instructor have any obligation for evaluation. No records are kept and no grades are issued. Audit tuition is 50 percent of the standard credit hour tuition listed in this catalog under financial information. Transfer of Credit Policies Students transferring to NHCC from accredited institutions will be given credit toward graduation provided that the course meets a program requirement at NHCC. Official transcripts from all other schools and colleges attended must be submitted directly to NHCC. Transcripts will not be accepted unless they are received officially sealed (unopened) from the school or college. An evaluation will be given to the student showing those courses that have been accepted for credit according to the following criteria:

• C  redit is evaluated on a course-for-course basis to ensure that the course descriptions are basically comparable. • O  nly course work with a C or better grade will be accepted. The grade points do not transfer. A student’s GPA is computed only on work completed at NHCC. • The number of transferable credits is restricted by two policies: 1) No more than a total of two years of credit (30 semester hours) can be transferred from a two-year college. 2) The last year (30 semester hours) of work must be completed at NHCC.

71

Transferring credit from recognized nonaccredited institutions is sometimes possible. Based on established criteria, a provisional evaluation is made and given to the student. The student must successfully complete one year at NHCC with a minimum GPA of 2.0 before final credit is given. If a satisfactory grade average is maintained at NHCC, credit will be given for up to 80 percent of the work completed at the nonaccredited institution for which the student received a grade of C or better provided the course meets the requirements for a course within the student’s chosen program of study. NHCC

Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate credit from recognized high schools is accepted as well as credits from the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) for those courses that fit into the student’s chosen program of study. CLEP subject examinations cover a number of relatively standard subjects taught in secular colleges and universities. Examinations include such areas as Introductory Economics, American History, and English Literature. They are available to anyone who wishes to take them, whether enrolled in college or not. Students are permitted to use these examinations when they are approved by the college as appropriate for specific subject requirements for up to 20 semester hours of their study program. The College charges a recording fee of $5 per semester hour for such credit. The College will grant credit after the candidate becomes an enrolled student. Credit is granted only in areas required in the student’s program at NHCC. General CLEP information is available in the Office of the Director of Admissions at NHCC or more detailed information is available at the University of Oregon Counseling Center, an official test center for the CLEP program. Independent Study

NHCC

catalog

2013-2015

72

Upper-division students desiring to study specific topics generally not covered in current course offerings or those needing a course that will not fit their regular class schedule may request an Independent Study for that course, providing the regular instructor or one designated by the Academic Dean is willing to offer it independently. Students wishing to do this must obtain the request form from the Registrar and work within the guidelines established for independent study, including minimum GPA requirements.

raduation Information

Transfer of Credit to Other Institutions

Transfer of credit is always at the discretion of the receiving institution and generally depends on comparability of curricula, and in some cases, comparability of accreditation. Credits earned at NHCC have been well received at other colleges and universities, particularly when those schools offer similar programs and courses. Honors At the conclusion of each semester, the College compiles a list of all full-time students whose grade point average for the semester is 3.5 or above. The list is posted at the College.

Graduation honors are granted to students who have been in residence at least 60 semester hours on the following basis:

3.50-3.69 GPA - Cum Laude (with Honors) 3.70-3.89 GPA - Magna Cum Laude (with High Honors) 3.90-4.00 GPA - Summa Cum Laude (with Highest Honors)

73

Transcripts and Records Official transcripts of the student’s record are not issued directly to the individual but are sent to the institution for which request has been made. Students should submit transcript requests via: www.newhope.edu/admissions/transcript.php Students and alumni pay a $5 transcript fee for each transcript to cover handling and shipping. No transcript is released for any student or former student before financial accounts with the college are cleared. All students have a right to inspect institutional records about themselves. Procedural information for doing so can be obtained through the Registrar. Program Completion Statistics

NHCC

catalog

In recent years, an average of between 40 and 50 percent of students enrolling in a degree program at NHCC have received their degree within six years. Also, between 50 and 70 percent of graduates either began a related ministry profession following graduation or entered graduate school.

2013-2015 R7


Graduation Requirements All candidates for the baccalaureate degrees must meet the following requirements: 1. C  omplete at least 124 semester hours (some programs higher) that satisfy the requirements of the declared program of studies with a GPA of at least 2.00. 2.

NHCC requires for graduation a C or above in all upper division professional education courses required in a student’s major. For Interdisciplinary students this requirement applies to all professional education courses. Field Experience Students in all majors are required to complete field experience as a part of their respective academic programs. Field experience, which provides practical experience under the guidance of a professional in vocational ministry, may be undertaken only after a student has attained senior classification and has completed specified courses in his/her respective academic program. Field experience is commonly completed during the summer between the junior and senior years. Directors for each program provide guidance for students in finding such opportunities and direct and evaluate each student’s field experience. Certificate of Completion

NHCC

2013-2015

Students who complete the required total semester hours of their study program but who fail to maintain at least a 2.00 grade average receive a Certificate of Completion. Career Planning and Placement Although NHCC does not maintain a specific office dedicated to career planning, faculty academic advisors assist students in planning programs so that career opportunities are clarified and options opened for them. The College provides additional help for assisting students in placement. The Student Life Director informs members of the graduating class regarding ministry opportunities and other vocational possibilities and coordinates the setting of appointments with potential employers. Employment listings are available in that office particularly during spring semester.

I G NI T E

Central to NHCC’s mission is the opportunity for students to learn God’s word and to gain knowledge to be effective Christians in our culture, and to gain skills and attitudes necessary for effective leadership and ministry. Faculty and staff also strongly believe that helping students grow in Christian character and personal daily life with Christ is equally important. Student Life is the umbrella under which the nonacademic portion of the campus is structured. The mission of Student Life is to intentionally guide, mentor and encourage students toward maturity in spiritual disciplines, godly character and Spirit-filled servant ministry in a life submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

84

Student Life Objectives: Provide an environment conducive to personal growth and maturation in discipleship Guide students in the development of spiritual disciplines in their personal lives Guide students into integrating academic learning, practical ministry experience, and Christian character development, embracing the Lordship of Christ in all areas of life Provide guidance for student into opportunities for involvement and growth in ministry

STUDENT MINISTRY Being involved in hands-on ministry is a vital part of a student’s education and training for leadership at New Hope Christian College. One of the distinctives of Christian colleges is an emphasis on practical Christian ministry as an essential part of students’ training. NHCC adheres to this distinctive and includes a requirement for participation in ministry as part of all academic programs. Based on the conviction that the most effective learning process couples knowledge with application, the requirement to be involved in ministry enables students to learn and gain ministry experience as they serve others.

u


Chapel A key part of New Hope Christian College’s commitment to students’ spiritual lives is the weekly chapel session during which the College community gathers to worship and hear speakers bring teaching and encouragement. Ignite Teams and Life Groups An important part of NHCC’s mission is to help students develop Christian character and spiritual maturity. All full-time students participate weekly in small groups that provide opportunity for students to be discipled and to learn to disciple others. Church Attendance The College requires each student to find a home church of their denominational preference in the Eugene-Springfield area and to participate in the life of that church through regular weekly attendance and service in that church. Spiritual Leadership Conference Two times per year, two consecutive half-days are devoted to a special conference replacing regularly scheduled classes. Sessions of worship and teaching by guest Christian leaders provide a focused spiritual emphasis.

esidential Life

Dormitories It is the goal of New Hope Christian College to provide a maturing experience that extends beyond its obvious academic role; therefore, its distinctive differs from that of a secular college campus. The desired total experience includes developing spiritual, social, emotional, and vocational areas of the student’s life. In keeping with these goals, the College requires that all single students not living in their family homes live in a College dormitory until age 21. Exceptions are discussed in the Student Handbook. The College provides two on-campus residence halls, Meyer Hall for men and Hornshuh Hall for women.

86

Students apply for student housing by submitting a dorm application. This form is sent to prospective students with the acceptance packet. A deposit of $150 is required with this application. If the application is withdrawn, the full deposit is refundable. Dormitory residents should bring with them only essential personal items and those which will help to create a homelike atmosphere. Some necessary items include bedding for a single bed (sheets, mattress cover, blankets, pillow and pillow case), towels, and other personal effects for grooming and clothes care. Desks and other such furnishings are provided by the College. Laundry facilities are located on the main floor of Hornshuh Hall and in the west end of the Life Resource Center. Students must care for their personal laundry, including linens and towels. Dormitory opening dates for each quarter are identified on the Academic Calendar in this catalog (page 6).

Conduct Historically, New Hope Christian College has been recognized as an institution which upholds biblical standards for Christian living. The conduct of one’s personal life is seen as a constant witness to the world. Reasonable and consistent regulations protect the testimony of the College as a whole, provide an atmosphere of harmony, foster growth in the knowledge of Christ, and help to maintain a biblical standard of holiness. Christian love and an attitude of cooperation will enable individual students to keep the spirit of written regulations for the edification of the entire student body. The College administration, faculty, and staff expect students to refrain from conduct and practices offensive to normal Christian conscience and detrimental to the development of consistent Christian character. This includes sexual immorality or promiscuity, the use of tobacco, nonmedical use of drugs (including marijuana), abusive behavior or endangerment of others, dishonesty in all forms, use of foul or profane language, and the reading or viewing of sexual and suggestive materials. Other more specific policies governing student conduct and disciplinary procedures are contained in the Student Handbook.

87

Students are further expected to use discretion in the use of television, radio, the Internet, and attendance at public entertainment events. It is assumed that in applying for admission to NHCC the student has acquainted himself or herself with college standards, ideals, and policies. The College considers a student’s registration an agreement on the part of the student to abide by the rules and regulations in effect. Those who fail to do so may be restricted from future enrollment, placed on disciplinary probation, or dismissed from school, depending upon the individual situation. If enrollment has been discontinued or restricted on this basis, appeal for re-enrollment may be made to the Administrative Team at the conclusion of the restricted period.

NHCC

catalog 2013-2015 R7


Dress Code New Hope Christian College does maintain a dress code based both upon a Biblical standard of holiness and upon the professional character of the College. Students are expected to refrain from wearing clothes that make the body conspicuous in any way—clothes that are especially tight or revealing or extreme fashions that are immodest. More specific regulations for dress are contained in the Student Handbook given to each student at registration.

Engagement and Marriage

88

Since marriage involves many adjustments that can add stress and may hinder academic progress, students are discouraged from getting married during the academic year. Those who plan to marry during the year must consult with the Student Life Director, who reserves the right to ask those students to reduce their academic course loads during the semester after their marriage.

Motor Vehicles Policy

Counseling Services

Many opportunities arise in routine college life for informal counseling by all College personnel, but a regular counseling staff is provided through the Student Life office. The Student Life Counselors direct and coordinate the program which, in addition to themselves, includes the dormitory Ignite Directors and a group of especially prepared student Ignite Team Leaders. Students may feel free to discuss and share whatever problems they may have with the appropriate Student Life Counselor, Ignite Director or Ignite Team Leader. Students may also feel free to seek counsel from their academic advisor or from any of their instructors.

Health Services

Dormitory residents have basic health services that can be made available to them while on campus. Although there are no medical professionals on campus, urgent care and hospital assistance are located nearby. First aid supplies are available at several locations on campus. Student Life personnel are available to direct students to other medical resources as needed. All students are required to be covered by a medical insurance policy. If a student does not have medical coverage it will be purchased for them and the cost added to their account.

Social Activities

New Hope Christian College maintains a variety of athletic activities to meet the needs of as many individuals as possible. Intramural Sports and Physical Education Students are required to have at least four units of Intramural Sports (I.S.) for graduation. The requirement does not apply to armed services veterans, married students or anyone over 24. Those whose work schedules conflict with the program may petition for excusal for any particular semester. Transfer students are required to have one unit of credit for each semester in residence if they attend NHCC for less than four semesters, and students in the Bible Certificate Program are required to complete one unit. Participation in NHCC team sports also meets this requirement.

IF T O P P O R T UNI T I E S Student expenses at New Hope Christian College are comparable to those of similar institutions. Yet, tuition fees alone will never cover the true costs of education. Our tuition rates remain affordable due to the faithful giving of people who are committed to investing in future Christian leaders. New Hope Christian College donors faithfully make up the difference through consistent gifts to the College. There are several ways in which one can give for this purpose: • A financial gift through a check or credit card may be given directly to the College • Donating to one of our scholarship funds for needy students, internships, or for honor students • Appreciated securities, unencumbered property, or life insurance • Trusts or annuity agreements. • Adding the College to your will • Gifts in-kind or donated services from you or your company It is only through a partnership with men and women like you that NHCC can continue to offer stellar programs at affordable rates. For additional information regarding any of these plans, direct your inquiry to:
