The University of Mobile exists to produce graduates grounded in the Christian worldview, centered on Christ, submitted to the Word of God, and engaging the World. In keeping with the stated mission of the institution, the purpose of chapel is to offer students well-planned programs providing for Christian growth and maturation.

Offered every fall and spring semester, Chapel services are held on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. in Ram Hall and Weaver Auditorium. Undergraduate students who are enrolled in 12 or more hours are to attend a minimum of 10 chapel services each semester.

Students attending fewer than 10 chapel services during a semester will receive communication concerning chapel attendance accountability and will be expected to attend 10 chapels during the following semester in addition to the number of chapel services missed the prior semester. Following this warning, attending fewer than 10 chapel services during a following semester will result in a student being placed on University probation. Students on probation are expected to attend 10 chapels during a semester in addition to the number of chapel services missed the prior semester and are not allowed to hold leadership positions (Campus Life Leadership, Residential Life, Athletics, Intramurals, SGA, Ensembles, etc.) Those on probation for more than two semesters will face the possibility of suspension from the University for one semester.

Chapel attendance exemptions and reductions are available for students who are student teaching, commuters taking Tuesday/Thursday classes only, studying abroad, meeting full-time internship requirements, or taking clinicals on Wednesdays. A chapel attendance exemption/ reduction form is due by September 2 (fall) and January 27 (spring) each semester. Graduate Students and Adult and Professional Studies students are exempt from chapel.

For more information about chapel requirements, please contact Chase Alford at (251) 442-2202 or calford@umobile.edu

The chapel exemption link is on MyUM, in the first portlet of the “Home-Student” page.
