General Information

Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security

In compliance with Title I of the Act, which is called the "Student Right-to-Know Act," the Institute releases the completion or graduation rate of certificate, full-time students entering the Institute to any prospective or current student prior to the student's enrolling or entering into any financial obligation.

In compliance with the Title II of the Act, which is called the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990," the Institute: (1) compiles specified information on campus crime statistics and campus security policies; (2) makes timely reports to the campus community on crimes considered to be a threat to other students and employees; (3) publishes and distributes an annual report of campus security policies and crime statistics to all current students and employees; (4) provides copies of the annual report to any applicant for enrollment or employment upon request; and, (5) upon request, submits a copy of the annual report to the Secretary of Education.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

Students at the Institute enjoy certain rights while at the same time, have certain responsibilities. The submission of an application for admission to the Institute represents a voluntary decision on the student’s part to participate in the programs offered by the institution pursuant to the policies, rules, and regulations of the Institute. The Institute approval of that application, in turn, represents the extension of a privilege to join the Institute and remain a part of it so long as the student meets the required academic and social standards of the Institute.

The Institute is a learning community with specific expectations concerning the conduct of its students. The Institute strongly believes that students are adults who are expected to take personal responsibility for their own conduct.

Acceptance into any of the Institute’s programs means that the student has the following rights and responsibilities:

  • To pursue the student’s educational goals through the resources and the opportunities made available to him or her by the Institute.
  • To challenge any institute ruling or other sanction by appealing to due process, except as hereinafter provided.
  • To inquire, express views, and assemble with others as long as the student does not interfere with the rights of others or the Institute’s effective operation.
  • To receive a professional and non-biased review of the student’s academic ability and performance.
  • To recognize the safety and protection of property and the continuity of the educational process.
  • To help the Institute maintain good relations with its neighbors and the surrounding community by, among other things, obeying all traffic regulations, not littering or causing any disturbance, and respecting private property.

Student ID

A student ID is $25 for all students. It is useful for getting student discounts, and is required for school purposes. Students can visit the Student Services Advisor to get their pictures taken for their IDs after registration.

All class time lost due to inclement weather will be made up.
