Center for Graduate & Continuing Studies Online Courses

Permission my be granted for Lamoni and Independence Campus students to enroll in Center for Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) online courses when irresolvable scheduling conflicts exist, verified by the advisor, which preclude enrollment in a regularly scheduled class.  The hours will be billed as residential campus hours, and may count toward the student's on-campus load.

The following procedure applies to CGCS online courses:

  1. A completed Application for Enrollment in Arranged or CGCS Online Courses is submitted by the student to the Division Chair or Dean of the School responsible for the proposed course. The student must provide rationale and evidence of conflict, e.g. 4-year plan, work schedule, etc. for the online course, and signatures from their academic advisor and instructor.
  2. The Division Chair or Dean of the School notes the appropriate action and forwards the application to the Registrar. Book orders are placed and charges are applied to the student's account.
  3. The student is then subject to CGCS policies for completion of the course (withdrawal policy, participation policy).
