A Gathered Community

Andrews University offers a rich learning environment both inside and outside the classroom. Classes required for a student’s chosen academic curriculum are complemented by a number of required co-curricular experiences each semester. Curricular and co-curricular requirements work together to deliver the unique whole-person education that lies at the heart of Andrews University’s mission.

There are two types of co-curricular programs offered:

Chapels and Forums
Chapel programs are designed to gather the university family together once a week for corporate worship, spiritual inspiration and biblical instruction. Forums, often presented by noted leaders, focus on major issues of concern to Christians as they live and work in the world. These will occur approximately once a month.

Co-Curricular Choices
A wide variety of programs will gather smaller groups of students together each week and focus on their intellectual, spiritual and leadership development. These choices will be presented at different times throughout the week in the residence halls and across campus.

Both types of programs are integral to the Andrews University educational experience, connecting faith, living and learning, and fostering the building of community.

Required Attendance
All undergraduate students are required to attend 30 programs a semester, including Chapels, Forums, and Co-Curricular Choices. Work conflicts do NOT exempt students from attendance.

Chapel/Forum Minimum
Of the 30 required programs, students must attend a minimum of 12 Chapel/Forum programs each semester. These are held every Thursday at 11:30 a.m., usually in the Pioneer Memorial Church.

Co-Curricular Choices Minimum
The remainder of the 30 required programs can be selected from the Co-curricular Choices offered throughout each week. These programs will be offered in the residence halls and across campus. Undergraduates living in residence halls must attend a minimum of nine (9) Co-Curricular Choices each semester offered in their residence hall as part of their 30 required programs.

Students who choose to attend Andrews University not only make a commitment to be part of a gathered community, but agree to be held accountable for honoring that commitment. A $25 charge will be assessed for the first absence resulting in a failure to meet the requirements described above. A $10 charge will be assessed for EACH absence thereafter.

For example, if a student attends 14 chapels/forums, 9 residence hall worships, and 7 co-curricular choices, for a total of 3, a fine of $25 will be assessed due to not meeting the minimum number of chapel/forum appointments. 

If a residence hall student attends 17 chapels/forums, 7 residence hall worships, and 8 co-curricular choices, for a total of 31, a fine of $35 will be assessed due to not meeting the minimum number of residence hall appointments.
