                                       LYNCHBURG COLLEGE!




To our new students: Welcome to the Lynchburg College Community. You
will find that your professors, advisors, tutors, and other staff members will go
above and beyond to offer you the best learning opportunities available. But
this is a partnership. You, too, must go above and beyond in your efforts to
engage in the opportunities all around you. Don’t just attend classes – actively
participate in them; don’t just join an organization – be a leader within it; don’t
just read about concepts and theories – experience them through internships,
practicums, and service learning. Our promise to you is that we will provide
you with outstanding learning opportunities. Our expectation is that you will
step up and be an integral part of this College.
       To family, friends, and support groups: You have sent your students off to a
new experience. Your role will change as you support them in their next phase
of growth and development. They will need to take the lead in their own edu-
cational journey. Your job is to ask good questions of them, challenge their per-
ceptions, and offer encouragement to your student. We hope that you will be a
true supporter in our goal to develop your student into a person who is pre-
pared “for intelligent and wholehearted participation in a global society.”
       This publication provides information about a variety of services and
support programs available to students at Lynchburg College, as well as
answers to questions most commonly asked by new students and guests at
orientation. Parents and family members are strongly encouraged to keep this
publication at home as a reference throughout their student’s tenure at LC.

    ACADEMIC ADVISING
    The Academic Advising Center staff assign each entering student an
    advisor to help students select appropriate academic programs.
    Freshman advisors work in partnership with peer mentors, known
    on campus as Connection Leaders. Although academic advisors
    monitor advisees’ educational progress, each student is responsible
    for complying with all academic requirements as listed in the catalog
    and for tracking his/her progress to graduation. All students can find
    pertinent academic records online through “Students Online”
    (www.lynchburg.edu/studentsonline) or may request them through
    the Office of the Registrar. Students are encouraged to visit regular-
    ly with advisors and with Academic Advising staff members to dis-
    cuss academic concerns, as well as short- and long-term goals.

Lynchburg College supports students in obtaining reasonable
accommodations at the College. Admission to Lynchburg College
is determined by academic qualifications, and students with disabil-
ities meet the same entrance requirements as other applicants.
Disclosure by the student and official documentation are required
to determine eligibility for assistance due to a disability. Students
with disabilities who anticipate the need for academic accommo-
dations should contact the Support Services coordinator in the
Academic Advising Center.



OFFICE OF THE REGISTAR
Course registrations and course drop/adds are processed at the
Office of the Registrar, fourth floor, Hall Campus Center. Advisor
approval for all course drops and adds, and instructor approval for
closed classes, for late registrations, and for course withdrawals is
required. Students should refer to the academic calendar online
or in the College catalog for course add/drop dates. Lynchburg
College has a unique and superior advance registration system in
which students register in advance for a whole year versus only
one semester. A computer program considers course prefer-
ences, entered online by students, with a usual success rate that
registers students for more than 90 percent of the requested
courses. Following the online registration some students will need
to consult with advisors and process a few drop/adds to complete
their registrations.
      Reports of progress toward graduation are provided to stu-
dents and advisors to assist in their class schedule planning. For
graduation progress reports to be accurate, students need to be
certain that the Registrar’s Office has their correct major, major
emphasis (if appropriate), minor, and governing catalog dates
recorded in the student records system.



CAREER DEVELOPMENT
As part of the Academic and Career Services office, Career Devel-
opment provides assistance to students who need career and grad-
uate or professional school direction and job search skills. Students
may receive assistance with self-assessment, exploration of possible
majors and careers, goal setting, decision making, and job-seeking
skills such as resumé writing and interviewing. Because initiative and
motivation are key factors for career success, students are encour-
aged to take an active approach toward career preparation begin-
ning their freshman year.

3. Enrollment Deposit
To serve returning students adequately, the College must know by
spring each year how many students will return in the fall. There-
fore, each resident student must pay a $600 enrollment deposit,
and each non-resident student must pay a $200 enrollment deposit
by February 28. The deposit is applied to tuition, room, and board
charges for the fall and must be repaid each year that a student
plans to enroll. Currently-enrolled students who cannot return in
the fall must notify the Business Office in writing prior to June 1 to
receive a deposit refund.

NOTE TO REPONSIBLE PARTY: Be sure to deduct the room
deposit (for new students) or the enrollment deposit (for returning
students) from the first payment.

Withdrawals and Tuition Refunds
Students are enrolled in Lynchburg College for the full academic ses-

fore, if a student withdraws or is separated from the College for any
reason prior to the beginning of a semester, a full refund will be
made for that semester. If a student withdraws or is separated from
the College for any reason other than a physical disability once the

ping by the Center. The Center’s staff of doctors, nurse practition-
ers, and nurses is available to assist students in the evaluation and
treatment of most medical conditions. A College physician is on
campus at scheduled times each week and is on call at other times.
Because the physician’s time on campus is limited, students are seen
on a priority basis.
       Nurse practitioners and nurses provide primary health care
when the physician is not on campus. Additional services include
allergy injections, gynecological and contraceptive services, lab testing
(including anonymous HIV/AIDS testing), immunizations, nutrition
and diet counseling, and consultations about emotional or psycholog-
ical issues. Most services are free and all information is handled with
strict confidentiality.
       After regular hours, students may call LC Emergency Medical
Services, a student-run rescue squad, by dialing “5555” (main campus
switchboard) or 434/544-8555 from off campus.
       All students are expected to carry health insurance, and a health
insurance policy for students is offered through the Business Office
(434/544-8213). Students who do not have coverage should make
arrangements to obtain health insurance and have a current insur-
ance card (including a prescription card) available for any emergency
or off-campus medical care visit.
