Chapel attendance is required of every student each semester until seven credits have been accumulated or unless excused. Seven chapel credits are required for receiving a bachelor’s degree from Ouachita. In order to receive one chapel credit, a student must attend at least three-fourths of the regularly scheduled chapel services during a semester, or must be excused by the dean of students for absences in excess of one-fourth the total number. Provisions for applying the spirit of these regulations to transfer students and to special hardship cases shall be determined by the dean of students or, in some cases, the president.
Transfer or accelerated students who are unable to accumulate seven chapel credits are required to accumulate as many chapel credits as the number of regular semesters they are in residence for the Ouachita degree.
