  • Pray for you and your family. 
  • Send a welcome letter to you during enrollment, outlining key information you need to be successful.

  • Hold you accountable for your target due dates to complete coursework. 
  • Answer your questions via email or phone within 24 hours on weekdays. 
  • Interact with you in the course, including discussion forums, when appropriate. 
  • Grade all work submitted within 48 hours of submission on weekdays (as long as no more than 5 assignments are submitted at once). 
  • Provide quality feedback to improve your learning. (Additional feedback on assignments or clarification of grading techniques and/or synchronous learning sessions can be requested. Please contact your instructor directly). 
  • Make reasonable accommodations if you have special needs. (Please discuss this directly with your instructor). 
  • Report mid-term grades after you take the semester exam. (No work can be submitted in the semester once the semester exam has been taken).
