WMCGW students are free to pursue their educational goals. The University shall provide curricula by which students may be given appropriate opportunities for learning in the classroom and on the campus. Each student has the right to personal privacy except as otherwise provided by law and University policy and this will be observed by students and University authorities alike. No disciplinary sanctions may be imposed upon any student subject to disciplinary action rising from alleged violation of the Code of Conduct without due process.
All WMCGW students may pursue their educational opportunities free from harassment, including physical abuse, threats or intimidation. WMCGW provides equal educational opportunities to its students without regard to race, color, gender, national or ethnic origin, age or disability. WMCGW prohibits discrimination on any of these bases and will take steps necessary to remedy any instances of such discrimination.
WMCGW students may express their beliefs, feelings and opinions so long as the manner of expression does not violate another community member’s rights. Specific examples of such violations include, but are not limited to, disrupting University functions and impeding access to any part of the campus and violations of the Code of Student Conduct. WMCGW reserves the right to impose reasonable regulations as to the time and place for some activities and, in certain circumstances, to require written permission before they may be undertaken.
The enrollment of a student to WMCGW signifies a voluntary decision on the part of the student to participate in the programs offered by the institution pursuant to the policies, rules, and regulations of the University and rules and regulations of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. University admittance of a student, in turn, represents the extension of a privilege to join the University community and to remain a part of it so long as the student meets the required academic, financial, and behavioral standards of the University system (see Student Code of Conduct).
WMC offers student orientation each semester for new and continuing students to provide information on school life, policies, regulations, faculty, administration, and the surrounding community for the upcoming semester.
The needs of international students studying at WMCGWare unique and thus require additional attention. WMCGW recognizes that these students need more help than local students in adjusting to college life. Although the university does not operate dormitories, ample housing is available nearby.
Every student enrolled at WMCGW is a member of the Student Fellowship.
The student activity fee funds the student activities. The Student Fellowship seeks to stimulate prayer and the sense of community among students by organizing bi-annual mountain prayer meetings and praise meetings on campus.
Student Clubs at WMCGW
WMC encourages the formation of student clubs that will be beneficial to the students academically and emotionally. Friendship and fellowship among Christians can be soothing to the soul, promote a spirit of cooperation, and boost the desire to continue the work of our Lord Jesus Christ. We, therefore, encourage the clubs that abide by our Christian values, ethics, and spiritual life. Examples of such clubs are: Mentoring Club, Book Club, Short-term missions Club, Bible study Club, and clubs relevant to field work.
Worship and Spiritual Life
Students at World Mission College enjoy a variety of opportunities to enhance their spiritual development. It is expected that all students will regularly attend and be involved in a local church.
World Missions College holds Revival Meetings at the beginning of each semester. There are chapel services for students every Monday. Chapel services feature worship, as well as messages by the members of the faculty and other Christian leaders. All students are expected to attend chapel. In addition, to assist the spiritual nurturing of the student body, the Student Government Council arranges the Mountain Prayer Meeting during the semester. The worship services and other opportunities that of spiritual nature are intended to complement the instruction and spiritual growth students receive in the classroom.
