Success in college and beyond involves developing knowledge, skills and habits. Below are three easy ways you can gain practice and begin to build success at LLCC:

  1. Attend every class. Participation in a classroom or an online learning context is key to success. If you are unable to attend class or participate online, make sure you inform your instructor and make alternate arrangements if possible. All classes should have policies for attendance and participation noted in the course syllabus.
  2. Read everything that’s assigned. Many courses have textbooks or readings of some type. It is difficult to participate or have the background knowledge to complete other aspects of the course if you have not read the assigned materials. Notify your instructor or success coach if you are having trouble acquiring the reading materials for the course.
  3. Turn in all assignments. Assignments give you the opportunity to practice what you are learning in a course. They are also the basis for much of the grade in a course. Missing or late assignments often result in a zero, which can significantly lower your grade.

LLCC Accessibility Services facilitates equal access to educational programs and services for disabled students. Please call 217-786-2599 or 217-786-2869 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Your grade point average is computed by a system that assigns four points for an A, three points for a B, two points for a C, one point for a D and zero points for an F. The number of points assigned to the grade you earn in a course is multiplied by the number of credits the course carries. Your overall average can then be computed by dividing total points earned by total credits attempted. The division is carried out three places to the right of the decimal, and the quotient is rounded off two decimal places. Developmental courses are not reflected in GPA calculations. For a more detailed explanation and example, consult the LLCC catalog.

Graduation is not automatic; students must apply by the posted deadline by using LoggerCentral. See Commencement.

Instructors may at their discretion assign a grade of incomplete (I) to a student who has met a substantial portion of all course requirements, but for valid and good reasons is unable to complete remaining course work by the official end of the academic term. The grade of I carries no honor points and is not used in computing a student’s cumulative grade point average. The instructor will determine a time frame in which the course work must be completed.

The time frame shall be no longer than one academic semester (excluding summer term) beyond the semester in which the incomplete is assigned.
