Students are encouraged to share prayer requests and life concerns with the professor in this class. Not only will the professor pray for and care for students, but can guide students to appropriate University resources if desired.
However, in the event of a student’s disclosure, either verbally or in writing, of threat of serious or foreseeable harm to self or others, abuse or neglect of a minor, elderly or disabled person, victim or witness of a crime or sexual misconduct, or current involvement in criminal activity, the faculty, staff, administrator, or supervisor will take immediate action. This action may include, but is not limited to, immediate notification of appropriate state law enforcement or social services personnel, emergency contacts, notification of the appropriate program chair or online dean, or notification to other appropriate University officials. All reported information is treated with discretion and respect, and kept as private as possible.
As a Liberty student, you have certain rights and responsibilities that you should be aware of as you use the University’s technological resources.
Liberty University Code of Honor for Online Undergraduate & Graduate Students
Review our presentation discussing practical tips on avoiding plagiarising.
All assignments for this course are to be completed by the student enrolled in the course. As a student, you are responsible for knowing and adhering to the code of honor. Any violation of this code may result in a grade of “F” for the course and possible further discipline as indicated in the above document.
Liberty University Online courses use media and external links consistent with the latest research regarding the class subject area. Liberty University does not necessarily endorse specific personal, religious, philosophical, or political positions espoused by the creators of these materials or the other elements on the webpage where the content is housed.
If a student needs to remove a class from his/her schedule once it has begun, it can be done either as a “drop” or as a “withdrawal.” The method of processing the request is based on the student’s attendance.
A class can be dropped at any point prior to the start date of the course or once the course has begun up until the student attends the course. Attendance is defined as “any submission to Blackboard within the enrollment dates of the course.” This definition includes, but is not limited to, completion of the Course Requirements Checklist and the Course Introduction.
Once a submission is made to BlackBoard within the enrollment dates of the course, courses must be removed via withdrawal. To discuss the possible consequences of a withdrawal, contact Academic Advising at (855) 466-9218.
Students are expected to submit tests and course work throughout the term and/or sub-term. Students who begin attendance, but then cease progressing toward the completion of the course will be assigned a grade of "FN." If the student receives all FN's in a sub-term, the student will be subject to the Unofficial Withdrawal Procedure which includes the reduction and/or return of all financial aid. The student will also be subject to the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
You are expected to know how to navigate your course. For help in using Blackboard, visit the Services/Support area. Tutorials, printable help documents, and FAQs are offered there.
Your instructor will communicate with you via your Liberty University email address. Use only that address when contacting your instructor or classmates, and check your webmail inbox frequently in order to stay abreast of news and progress within your course. DO NOT turn in your assignments by email.
When creating a message to your instructor, identify your course and section in the subject line. Use the following model:
COUR ### - semester + section ###
(for example: COMS 101 - spring B02)
Include your name and student ID at the end of your email message.
While email may be utilized for casual communication, graded class discussions and group collaboration are conducted inside the discussion board tool of your Blackboard course. Since this also is the primary place for making impressions both socially and academically, create messages that convey you at your best. Proper netiquette can help you be successful. Netiquette, or network etiquette, refers to the generally accepted rules for considerate behavior in online communications. Some tips to keep in mind:
