inCharacter School of Ministry believes that in order to maintain a healthy environment for student interaction and team dynamic, there should be an established set of rules and standards by which all students should adhere. These guidelines affect dormitory life, church attendance, ministry involvement, interpersonal relationships, and striving for personal excellence in integrity and character. Please be aware that Associates degree students will NOT be permitted to work outside employment during their enrollment at iC. It is important that students experience the immersive nature of inCharacter’s ministry training program. Students are to have their tuition settled prior to first day of the program (either in full or payments).
Students are responsible for providing the following:
- valid health insurance [or student will be asked to sign a waiver form prior to registration]
- upon acceptance, student must sign and return the Commitment Form they will receive along with a $500 non-refundable Commitment Fee within 14 days of their receipt of acceptance letter.
- all students will be required to have a laptop for academic purposes.
- all questions to be directed to inCharacter Administrative Office.

TRANSFER OF CREDIT
inCharacter will consider requests to transfer credits on an individual basis. As our programs is highly unique, the acceptance of incoming credits may be very limited. Students should contact the Admissions Department to discuss transfer credits. The transfer of credits from inCharacter to other institutions cannot be guaranteed or determined. Such matters are taken on a case-by-case basis and depend upon the individual institution. If the student is entering iC with the intent of transferring to another institution upon graduation, please be sure to contact that institution PRIOR to enrolling at inCharacter School of Ministry.
Home school applicants must have an official transcript from a home school agency or college, or a GED certificate. For home schoolers not affiliated with a nationally organized home school agency, inCharacter reserves the right to determine the acceptable requirements for each home school applicant.
