Regular attendance at classes is necessary. Failure to attend regularly will result in a loss of credit in that subject for that semester.


If registration fees are paid, and no classes are attended, and written withdrawal is submitted, the student may submit written request for a refund of tuition paid minus $25 for enrollment processing. Tuition refunds are not available where the students have actively attended class. Please contact DBTI Business services for more information.


Recognizing that circumstances do arise at times to prevent attendance, each faculty member is permitted to excuse a student for four (4) days total per semester. Absences totaling more than four shall fail to receive credit for the course. If a student shows up 15 minutes or later to class, the teacher has a right to mark a student absent. Four tardiness is equal to one (1) absence.


During the semesters, there will be school chapels and lectures. The chapel and lectures are a part of the curriculum. Students are required to attend at least one chapel per semester. Hardship circumstances may be discussed with the Dean of Academic and Student Affairs for an unexcused absence. Please refer to the current academic calendar for dates and times.


Students are encouraged to register early and be in class on the first day. However, faculty members reserve the right to count late enrollment in the determination of absences. This is necessary since the student has missed a portion of the class lectures.


All work is evaluated by the instructor according to the following grading schedule:
A- 90-100
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 0-59


Examination Work
Written and oral examinations may be given by the professor at any time. However, one week shall be designed at the close of each semester for examinations in all subjects. All examinations must be taken at the time specified by the professor.

Make-Up Exams
Failure to take the examinations at the designated time shall result in a zero for the examination. However, the professor may provide a makeup exam at their discretion. The examination shall be taken within (2) weeks of the time designated for the original examination. In case a student shall fail to make a grade of 70 on any exam, the professor may allow taking the examination a second time within two (2) weeks. The first exam will be taken into account for the final semester grade. No further make-ups are permitted. If the student fails the examination on the second attempt, the student is subject to repeat the course.

DBTI operates with the understanding that all students exhibit integrity in all areas of spiritual life including academic training. The goal is to graduate students who are well-prepared as witnesses for Jesus Christ. All students are credited with being honest in-class assignments and course examinations. No answers, books, or Bibles shall be used on examinations except as permitted by the announcement of the professor.
