Policy Language

A student enrolled in any Liberty University Online course, who is unable to complete coursework by the last day of class due to illness or injury, may appeal to his/her professor for a temporary course grade of I (Incomplete). Appeals must be supported by medical documentation signed by a physician. There is no charge for a medical incomplete. Medical incompletes may be allowed, if the condition warrants, up to a maximum of four (4) months from the course start date of the course (or 2 additional months after the end of the course). If the coursework is not submitted by the new deadline, the student will receive a grade of zero for the incomplete assignments and a final grade will be submitted.

Policy Rationale

To provide a mechanism to account for an interruption in course completion without requiring the student to lose his or her academic progress.
