Parent/guardian expectations and information

All parents/guardians must acknowledge that this is a college course and students are expected to perform at a university level and exhibit adult behavior.  Students, not parents, are expected to communicate with faculty after the registration process is complete.  Parents also acknowledge that they are responsible for course tuition. Please review the drop/withdrawal dates.

Parents should be aware and acknowledge that this is a college course and anyone enrolled in the course will be treated as any other college student regardless of the student’s age.  This course is taught and covers the identical material of the class taught to traditional Longwood students.  If you feel that your student is not at a maturity level to take a college course or requiring that they be responsibility for all faculty interactions, this may not be the right course or right time for your student to take the course.

Student must be disciplined and have ability to follow written instructions.

Parent should acknowledge that this is an online course and as such, a significant amount of effort is require by the student.  In fact, many believe that an online class may prove for a workload even more demanding than a face-to-face class in that the student must be a self-directed learner, motivated, disciplined and must stay on top of their workload. It has been shown that the most successful online students tend to share the following characteristics:
• Self-motivation/self-starter
• Good organization and time-management skills
• Familiar with computers and the Internet
• Resourceful and actively seek answers and solutions to questions and problems

Students may work ahead on assignments (with minor exceptions) but must complete all assignments by posted deadlines what are posted on the syllabus and can be found at There are no makeups, retakes, extensions or extra credit. Any missed assignments result in a zero. For students working ahead, students will not be able to see graded assignment answers until after the deadline.  This is to ensure that assignments will not be shared with others in the class.
