See if your situation makes you eligible.

You may be eligible for a chapel reduction based on your class and work schedule.

No. The cafeteria serves lunch until 2:00, so if you have a class that meets until 1:30, you can still make it to the caf!

Yes. You qualify for a 50% reduction of the credits that would have otherwise been required. This policy is in place to try and reduce any burden on you in meeting your chapel goal while still encouraging your spiritual development, which is a core University belief and expectation at Oklahoma Christian. Keep in mind that View 63 provides chapel credits and there will be service project opportunities available each month.

If you have a job that takes place at the same time as 11:00 chapel, you may be eligible for a reduction. In order to receive a chapel reduction, you must have your employer compose an email from their work email account and send it to, or you provide a printed letter on company letterhead, signed by your employer and delivered to the Spiritual Life office.

If you have class until 11:00 chapel, and go to work directly after chapel lasting until at least 1:30, you may be eligible for a reduction. Additionally the converse may be true. If you have work before chapel, and class after chapel until 1:30.

If you live off campus and you do not have classes that both end 30 minutes before or start 30 minutes after chapel (both must be applicable), you may be eligible for a chapel reduction.

A non-traditional student is classified as someone who has already graduated from college, or is older than 24 years of age.
