Based upon these and
other Scriptures, Telos students are expected to reflect Godly character
in their speech, dress, and actions. Modest and professional dress
is expected at every Telos event, and disruptive language or behavior
will not be permitted. At all times, Telos students are to be characterized
by Godly qualities including, but not limited to, honesty, courtesy,
diligence, and humility.
negative character including, but not limited to, misrepresentations
on applications for admission, lying, profanity, immoral behavior,
plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration or discussion with other
students about graded writing assignments or papers, and cheating
on exams are clear violations of the code of conduct.
If a student’s
conduct, speech, or dress is not consistent with the character standards
set forth here, the issue will be addressed in accordance with Matthew
18:15–16. If repentance and restoration are not accomplished,
the student will be subject to dismissal from the Institute.
