Complete Wording of New or Revised Policy:
Regular attendance in courses is expected throughout the length of the term. The U.S. Department of Education requires that every university monitor the attendance of their students. Liberty University uses the following definitions* in determining student attendance which includes, but is not limited to:
PROCEDURES FOR IMPLEMENTATION AND REVIEW
Policy Review Cycle:
Every 4 years
Students who begin a course, but at some point in the semester cease attending, and do not provide official notification to withdraw, will be assigned a grade of "FN” (Failure for Non-Attendance), dated to the student’s last date of attendance (based on the definitions provided above). A grade of "FN" will be assigned when a student stops attending and/or participating in a class for a period of 21 consecutive days or longer. "FN" indicates that the student ceased attendance and failed to complete the course objectives.
