Although they do not qualify for SFCs, students are encouraged to maintain an ongoing practice of personal disciplines that nurture Christian formation (e.g., solitude, prayer, the study of Scripture, mission/evangelism, etc.). Students are encouraged to take advantage of sacred spaces set aside for personal and corporate times of prayer, reflection, and encouragement in residence halls, the beautiful outdoors, and the TFC Prayer Room. Furthermore, Christian formation requires participation in a local faith community.

Students who fail to earn the requisite number of SFCs by the end of the semester are subject to a $20 fine for each credit under the required amount (e.g., 25/30 credits – 5 X $20 = $100). Chapel fines are assessed at the conclusion of each semester and must be paid in full to resume classes the following semester.
Students who experience persistent problems related to scanning id cards should stop by the Office of Spiritual Formation to assess if the id card is in good working order or defective and in need of replacement. Students are encouraged to visit the OSF or to contact email@example.com with any request, question, or concern. Students can obtain information and assistance with tracking SFCs in my.dashanimalrescue.com or by consulting with an Ambassador of Grace (AoG) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 to 9:45 am in the OSF.
