Code of Conduct and Student Expectations

All students are expected to adhere to high standards of integrity at all times. CLC’s primary focus is to develop strong Christian leaders. Therefore, some types of behavior are not allowed, such as cheating, plagiarizing, falsifying information, and abusive, threatening, or harassing language or behavior. Any student found to be in violation of this policy could be subject to discipline, which may range from lowering a grade to expulsion, depending on the circumstances of the case.

Students are expected to treat administrators, staff, faculty, volunteers, and other students with courtesy, respect, and kindness, as is fitting for servants of the Lord. Obscene, abusive, profane, blasphemous, threatening, and/or harassing language or behavior are prohibited. Such language or behavior is grounds for disciplinary action, which may include academic probation, suspension, or expulsion.

Academic Integrity and Honesty

All students are expected to adhere to high standards of academic integrity at all times. Students are expected to view all the required materials within a course. In the case of a material being available in multiple formats, the student should view whichever format works best for that student’s technology situation. If CL administrators, staff, or faculty see that a student is not viewing the required course materials within courses and thus is not engaging with the course’s required content, that student may be subject to academic discipline and further review.


Each student must have only one student account. The student is responsible to keep the account secure by logging out when the student has finished any coursework for that session and keeping the password private. The student should not allow any other student to access this account. If a student is unable to get back into the student account for any reason, the student should email Help Desk at rather than creating a new account.


Falsifying information about yourself or others is strictly prohibited.


Below additional policies related to academic integrity, such as cheating and plagiarism policies, are explained further. Students are responsible to fully understand the importance of academic integrity and these related policies. Students found in violation of any of these policies related to academic integrity and honesty may be subject to academic probation, suspension, or expulsion.

Cheating Policy

What is cheating?
Cheating is finding out the content of quizzes before taking the quiz. This is not allowed. DO NOT discuss quiz questions and answers with other students. DO NOT use a different CLI account to see quiz questions or answers in advance. That is cheating.

May family members or study groups learn together?
Yes, students may discuss videos and articles together, but you must not take quizzes together or share any information about quizzes with one another. Each student must earn his or her own grade on a quiz, not get quiz help from someone else.

How is cheating detected?
CLI computer servers flag suspicious student activity. This information is analyzed for evidence of cheating. The Provost is then informed of any suspicious patterns.

What is the penalty for cheating on quizzes?
Cheaters will fail the class and will be expelled from Christian Leaders Institute. All certificates, awards, and diplomas will be revoked. Someone who cheats is not honest or trustworthy enough to be a leader in the church of Jesus Christ.

Can I appeal a decision to expel me?

If you believe the cheating charges are inaccurate, you may appeal to the Provost. After considering your case and any further information you provide, the Provost will decide whether you will remain a student at CLI or be expelled.

Plagiarism Policy

What is plagiarism?  Plagiarism is using someone else’s words or ideas without identifying the source, leaving the impression that the words or ideas are your own.

What are some examples of plagiarism?

  1. Submitting a paper written by someone else but identifying yourself as the author.
  2. Copying and pasting material from the internet into your paper, presenting it as your own wording and not saying where the material came from.
  3. Copying sentences or paragraphs from a book or article without quotation marks and without giving credit to the author.
  4. Summarizing or paraphrasing blocks of material from a source but not crediting the source in your paper.

What’s wrong with plagiarism?

Plagiarism is a form of stealing and lying. It violates Christian moral standards, is contrary to accepted academic guidelines, and is illegal under government law.

How does the Christian Leaders Institute respond to plagiarism?

  1. Any assignment found to involve plagiarism will automatically receive a failing grade.
  2. If the student wishes to appeal the failed grade, the student may contact the provost. If the provost determines that the plagiarism is unintentional and on a small scale, the student may be allowed to redo the assignment for a grade.
  3. However, if the provost determines that the plagiarism is intentional and involves a substantial amount of material, the student will fail the course as well as the particular assignment that involved plagiarism. At the provost’s discretion, the student’s scholarship may be revoked.
  4. If a student commits a second offense of serious plagiarism, the usual penalty will be loss of all scholarships and removal from Christian Leaders Institute. In exceptional circumstances, the provost may lessen this penalty. However, plagiarism is such a serious breach of Christian conduct and academic integrity that those found guilty of it repeatedly are not mature, trustworthy Christians who qualify to be trained for leadership in God’s church.
  5. If a student completes a class or earns a diploma from Christian Leaders Institute but is later found to have committed plagiarism, course credit may be withdrawn and the diploma may be revoked.

Policy for Retaking a Failed Class

1.    A student will be allowed to retake one failed class without any additional cost. After that, (1) a non-refundable $50.00 fee applies for the administrative process involved and (2) an update to a grade for a retaken course will be allowed only with permission from the registrar after a careful review of the student's academic record. The registrar's decision may be appealed once to the provost. Item 2 also applies. 

    2.    A student who fails any class must wait at least six months after the date enrollment in that course ends to re-enroll in the course he or she wishes to retake. The date a student may re-enroll is shown with the failed course grade on the student's record. The student may re-enroll only once in the course he or she wishes to re-take.

    3.    A student must receive a grade of C- or higher on the re-take or the student will not receive an update to their failed course grade.

    4.    A student will continue to have an F in the record for the course until the failed class has been completed and the student has contacted the registrar to have his or her grade updated. This update may take 3-7 business days to be reflected on the student's record. To request an update to the grade in a retaken course, you must contact the registrar at the following email address:
