SUMMARY OF STUDENT STANDARDS OF CONDUCT:
(A more detailed AFCOE Student Policy Handbook will be sent to you upon acceptance into the AFCOE Africa School)
All students are expected to live in harmony with Biblical principles, and to adhere to the standards and practices of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Personal Devotion Time
One of the keys to experiencing the full potential of the AFCOE Africa program is faithfulness in the area of personal devotions. This personal time spent between the soul and God enables and empowers the student for dynamic Christianity and effective ministry. Far from being a burdensome requirement, it is a blessed privilege!
Students are required to attend all scheduled classes and outreach projects unless other arrangements have been made and approved by the Administrator. Habitual tardiness and/or absence will not be tolerated and may lead to expulsion.
The Sabbath hours, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, are sacred and joyous times for spiritual renewal, public worship, and Christian fellowship. Secular activities (shopping, business, sports, and distracting amusements) are to be avoided during this time. Attendance at worship services is required unless arrangements are made to accommodate special circumstances.
A friendly and professional association is expected between attendees. Because of the intensity of the program, dating and courting is prohibited among the participants while at AFCOE Africa. All are required to maintain a high standard of moral purity, avoiding the appearance of inappropriate attentions to the opposite sex.
Applicants who have infants or children should plan to provide for their care with relatives or family friends at their home. AFCOE Africa students may not bring their infants or children to the AFCOE program. Nursing mothers are not permitted to take the Full-course training.
At AFCOE Africa, we strive to be the best at everything we do. We realize that God has called us to be a witness for Him. As part of that calling, we believe that dress and grooming should be modest, neat, and clean. Recognizing that our program demands a high standard of professionalism & excellence, the following dress policies are in effect for all students:
Please be advised that torn jeans, sleeveless or stomach revealing tops, skin-tight apparel, low-cut or unbuttoned shirts are not allowed at any time on campus or for off campus activities. Any jewelry, including wedding bands/rings, shall not be worn. Tattoos should be covered and not visible if possible.
For class & chapel, a professional or professional-casual look is expected. Dress or kaki pants with collared or button-up shirt are required for men. For ladies, skirts or dresses are expected during class, chapel, outreach, and the evangelistic meetings. No jeans, shorts, T-shirts, or mini-skirts are allowed at any time during class, chapel, outreach, church, or the evangelistic meetings.
For church, a professional look is expected. Shirt & tie or suit is suitable for men. Modest dresses or skirts/blouse for ladies are required.
Distribution of all books, literature, or media (CDs, videos, etc.) must first be approved by the AFCOE Africa staff.
Under no circumstances may any illicit drugs, tobacco, alcoholic beverages, caffeine, pornography, occult items, weapons (guns, long knives, machetes, or any other fighting weapon), gang symbols, or any other ungodly items be tolerated on the AFCOE Africa campus, in the AFCOE housing, or on the person of AFCOE students. Discovery of any of these items may lead to immediate expulsion, without a refund, from the program.
Participants are asked to assist the staff and other attendees by manifesting a cooperative, harmonious attitude. All must complete assignments by the date requested, meet community outreach goals, and abide by written rules as outlined in this document and the student policy manual. If you have concerns, questions, or special circumstances, please discuss them with our administration. Every effort is made to carefully resolve such issues.
Honesty is a vital principle and highly esteemed in AFCOE Africa. Any form of dishonesty: lying, gossiping, cheating, forgery, etc. will disqualify the participant from doing an OJT (training practicum) and may lead to dismissal from the AFCOE Africa Program.

Accreditation and Transfer Credits
AFCOE Africa is not an accredited school, but rather a training center of evangelism. Therefore, we cannot guarantee college/university credit for the completion of the AFCOE Africa program. AFRICOE will issue a certificate of completion for all who satisfactorily complete the course of evangelistic training.
