Intensives

Registration & Attendance

Registration

  • Students must register for their intensive by the A term for that semester or 30 days before the first day on campus, whichever comes first.
     

Pre-work and Post-work 

  • Students will have 30 days of pre-work to complete online for each intensive. To obtain pre-work assignments, log on to Blackboard and view the Course Content section. It is the student's responsibility to purchase  textbooks, print out the pre-course assignments, and have them completed before the first day of class.
  • After attending the on-campus portion of the intensive, students will have 30 days of post-work to complete online.
     

Attendance

  • Intensives will now require that the student attend prior to the residential dates of the course either via a course requirements checklist (CRC) or via a submitted assignment. All assignments for the course must fall between the start and end dates as listed.
  • Failure to complete the CRC will result in the student being dropped for non-attendance.
  • If any academic activity is completed by the student in Blackboard within the “PREPST” dates that are located in ASIST, the student will be officially marked as attending the course.  If the student no longer wishes to keep the course after he/she has attended, it will be processed as a withdrawal (even if it is before the residential portion of the course). Please contact Academic Advising (855-466-9218) as soon as possible if you can no longer attend.
  • 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.
     

Cancelations

  • Occasionally, low enrollment may cause some intensives to be canceled.
  • The online Intensive Course Schedule will be updated weekly concerning course closings and or cancelations.
     

International Students

  • The Application for Form I-20 must be filled out and submitted to the Resident Graduate Admissions Office at least 4 weeks prior to the proposed travel to Liberty University’s campus. This form allows students to attend a visa interview.
