Enrollment and Graduation Statistics:
HGST holds itself to the highest levels of character, honesty, and personal responsibility and expects all administrators, faculty, and staff to uphold that standard of integrity by providing clear and accurate information to students, prospective students, and the general public. No member of HGST’s administration, faculty, or staff will misrepresent the seminary by knowingly providing false, erroneous, or misleading statements about the nature of the seminary’s educational programs, facilities, financial charges, accreditation, or the employability of its graduates to any member of the public or other agency. Substantial misrepresentations are prohibited in all forms, including those made in any advertising, promotional materials, or in the marketing of courses or programs offered by the HGST.
Misrepresentation may be reported to Houston Graduate School of Theology at phone: (713) 942-9505 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org with “Misrepresentation” in the subject line.
Students with Disabilities:
HGST is a learning community that welcomes the full participation of students with disabilities into all aspects of seminary life and our journey together toward formation for ministry and service. The seminary will make every reasonable accommodation for any persons with disabilities. This reasonable accommodation is assured by our concern for equitable treatment of all who study and work in the Seminary community, and to follow the legal guidelines for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In compliance with federal and state regulations, the seminary will provide reasonable accommodations or services to qualified students with disabilities. The key principle is “accommodation,” not the altering of academic standards or course content. The student must make his or her abilities and limitations known and must meet the instructor’s expectations regarding class participation, attendance, and performance.
HGST will deem a request for accommodation or services reasonable if the request:
Is based on documented individual needs;
Does not compromise essential requirements of a course or program;
Does not impose a financial or administrative burden upon the seminary beyond that which is deemed reasonable and customary; or
Is within the scope of the seminary’s control.
HGST defines a qualified student as one whom, with or without reasonable accommodations, is able to perform the essential functions of program or course requirements. The essential requirements of an academic course or program do not need modification to accommodate an individual with a disability.
The Seminary condemns all occurrences of discrimination and mistreatment as intolerable and will respond to them quickly and effectively through those preexisting channels most relevant to the nature and context of the discrimination or mistreatment.
