Since only three intensives are required for our licensure and doctoral programs, we have only a short time of face-to-face contact. Your ability to successfully complete these courses is imperative for recommending you for licensure to work with K-12 students or to prepare you for your dissertation. Because of this, the following guidelines are part of the School of Education intensives.

Attendance for the full five days is required for passing your course. This policy is non-negotiable because of the short amount of time we have together. So please make travel arrangements early enough to allow for flight delays. There are exciting things to do here in Lynchburg. Or you can come early to begin to work on assignments.
(Assignments to be done during the week of class.)
Please see your course guide and syllabus. Winter intensives (December) may not have post assignments. However, most summer intensives do have post-assignments.
The below syllabi are provided as samples to give you an idea of what an intensive may entail. These documents are subject to change. Please do not purchase textbooks or plan for assignments and due dates according to these samples. Once you have officially enrolled in an intensive, please refer to the syllabus and course chart within Blackboard for information regarding textbooks, course schedule, assignments, due dates, and other expectations.
