Please read this carefully before starting your course

You will not be able to access your classes until the start date!!.

Enrollment

The link on the left side of the page titled "Contact Us" lists Enrollment Coordinators for the Extended Campus Internet Program. Once you fill out your payment form for each term it will go to one of those coordinators. Your method of payment for your classes determines your Enrollment Coordinator.

Advisement

ECI Services will initially advise you for your first term classes only. Once you have officially registered for a course, you will be assigned a permanent advisor. If you have any questions concerning your initial course registration please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Current students will find advisor information in the LC Portal (link in the blue bar at the bottom of the screen).

Drop/Add Period

Drop/Add ends one week after the class start date at 5:00pm EST. To add or drop a class during this time you will need fill out a Drop Form. If you drop a class during this time you are not held financially or academically responsible for it. DO NOT CALL OUR OFFICE TO DROP A CLASS.

Withdrawal from a Course

In the Extended Campus Internet Program, students wishing to withdraw after the drop period from a course must contact the professor through Blackboard. Students must also fill out the Withdrawal Form located under Quick Links (blue bar at the bottom of the screen), Forms, & Extended Campus Forms.

If a student cannot complete the course, and the Drop/Add period is over, the student’s request to withdraw must be submitted prior to the course end date. A grade of “WP” or “WF” will be assigned based on your current status within the course.

Incompletes

Classes must be completed in EIGHT WEEKS (with the exception of classes scheduled longer). Extensions will only be granted in extreme emergencies. NO EXCEPTIONS!! As per Limestone College’s Academic Catalog, “A mark of ‘I’ is assigned, at the discretion of the instructor and the Vice President for Academic Affairs, when due to extenuating circumstances such as illness, a student is unable to complete the work assigned in a course. It is understood that to receive a mark of ‘I’, all completed work in the course must be at the passing level or above. The mark of ‘I’ must be removed by the end of the following grading period. Failure to complete required work will result in a grade of ‘F’.” If a student must withdraw from a class, they must e-mail the instructor through Blackboard. A student cannot wait and withdraw from a class on the last day of the course.

Blackboard

We use Blackboard as our course management software. This software allows more interaction with the professor, online quizzes, online assignments, and many other teaching tools. Also, Blackboard has its own email system built within, so there will be no need to send emails via your personal email program unless otherwise stated in course syllabus. Please see the Student’s Guide to Blackboard for directions on how to access Blackboard. Please read your syllabus carefully for professor expectations and guidelines within your Blackboard course.

Proctor

Each student must submit a proctor application for approval by the 2nd week of your first class. This will ensure that your proctor will be approved and in the database on time for exams. The proctor application is available under Schedules and Resources menu. If you have any questions please email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Once approved, that proctor may be used for all Extended Campus Internet courses. Your proctor must have an e-mail address in order to be approved. You will be contacted if there is a problem with your proctor application.

Textbooks

The College will continue to keep books at the lowest price possible. Students, who drop a course but receive a textbook, must return it within three weeks of the start of the course. Make sure you read the syllabus before opening shrink wrapped books. All shrink wrap books are Non-Returnable if opened.

The returned book must be in the same condition as received. Book return forms to submit with your books are here. Effective immediately, no book may be returned unless the class is dropped. No exceptions! Books may no longer be refused. They will be shipped back to sender if paperwork is not enclosed. Do not order a textbook if you do not plan to keep it.

If do not receive a textbook for your class please contact your Enrollment Coordinator in the Extended Campus Office.

Course Evaluation

A course evaluation will be available online during the last 2 weeks of class. Please take the time to complete the course evaluation. It helps us determine how well your professor and the staff are performing.

If you have any questions, please contact the Extended Campus Office at 1-800-795-7151, ext.7
