As stated in the Mississippi College Undergraduate Catalog, “A student will not receive credit for Chapel attendance in any semester in which he or she accumulates more than the allowed absences. There are no excused absences from Chapel.”
Students enrolled in Blue & Gold 101/Freshman Chapel are allowed no more than FIVE total absences. Of the allowed absences, no more than THREE absences may be accumulated in either the Blue & Gold 101 small group meetings (Tuesdays) or the large group Chapel meetings (Thursdays).
Note: To receive credit for attending the initial Chapel meeting on Thursday, August 23rd, each student must sit with and sign the attendance form of his or her small group.
Remember to receive credit for chapel you must have your MC ID card scanned at Chapel (scanning may be done before and/or after chapel).
If it is necessary for you to enter Chapel after 10:55 you may not receive credit for chapel. If it is necessary for you to enter Chapel later than this because of a conflict with a class, you MUST have a note signed by the professor to this effect. The professor’s note should list your name, ID number, date and time, and must be given to the monitor at the door before entering Chapel. The monitor will initial the note and mark it “approved” so you can enter; you will then have your ID scanned as usual.
Blue & Gold 101/Freshmen Chapel only takes place during the fall semester each Academic year.
