Academic Registrar’s message
Hello and welcome to the Office of the Academic Registrar at LivingStone International University. I am glad that you are here and please feel at home. It is my great honor and privilege to serve you within the capacity that I have in this office. You are a valuable asset needed to build and transform the nations of Africa. It is my hope that we can meet and share together to see that your greatest talents and skills are refined for the greater good of your contribution in work, life and community. My goal is to ‘set each student up for success’. Success looks different for each person, yet we all can benefit from the holistic elements of life that LivingStone has to offer. LivingStone is a personal university and we value the uniqueness in each of you. This office will do all it can to see your fullest potential be lived out.
The office is open Monday to Friday between the following hours:
LivingStone International University seeks to maintain the highest possible standards in academics. Current offerings include a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, a Bachelor of Science in Media Technology, a Bachelor of Business and Administration, a Bachelor of Christian Ministry, and a Bachelor of Arts in Education. In addition, a School of Liberal Arts oversees a core curriculum that serves as a foundation for all other degrees. Academic and admissions policies are as follows.
Every course at LIU is assigned a number code that indicates both the level and the content of the course. This numbering system is explained in detail in a separate document.
Class Attendance and Homework
The University maintains a mandatory attendance policy for all classes. The final grade will be reduced for each unexcused absence beyond three (3). Excessive absences will result in failure of the class.
The contact hours spent in class are not the sum total of the workload for a given course. We assume that for every 1 hour of class-time, a student should spend 2 hours in study and preparation for that class. A 3-credit-hour class would assume that a student spends 6 hours outside the classroom each week.
Assessment and Grading
Assessment will be ongoing throughout the programme. Students must demonstrate critical thinking abilities through participation in class discussion. Periodic quizzes and exams will test knowledge retention. In addition, projects and papers will be assigned to determine research abilities and practical application of knowledge. The timing and weighting of these assessments will be as prescribed in the university examination regulations.
|4.4 – 5.0||First Class||Excellent|
|3.6 – 4.39||Second Class Upper||Very Good|
|2.8 – 3.59||Second Class Lower||Good|
|2.0 – 2.79||Satisfactory Pass||Pass|
Students will receive course credit for any passing grade. However, in some cases, a higher grade may be required for acceptance into upper level classes.
“As you come to him, the living Stone rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him you also, . you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” 1Peter 4:2-5
