IAU | ADDENDUM TO THE 2021 IAU CATALOG

 

This addendum to the 2021 IAU Catalog addresses institutional updates that occurred after January 1, 2021. The purpose of this addendum is to keep IAU’s students and other stakeholders informed of any changes that may affect them.

The following areas have been updated in the 2021 Catalog:

  1. Update to Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF)
    Effective February 8, 2021, the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment rate changed from zero ($0) per one thousand dollars ($1,000) of institutional charges to fifty cents ($.50) per one thousand dollars ($1,000) of institutional charges (5 CCR § 76120). Accordingly, IAU has also updated the following table:

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is defined by three things:

  1. Achieving and maintaining a required Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.0 for undergraduate students and 3.0 for graduate students.
  2. Completing a minimum of 67% of courses attempted per term.
  3. Completion of a program within 100% of the approved set program length.

At the end of each mandatory trimester, any student who fails to meet SAP is subject to the following:

  1. If a student fails to maintain SAP, the student will be placed on Academic Probation. The student will be advised and will be required to meet with an academic adviser in person. Failure to meet with an adviser will result in being administratively withdrawn from the program.
  2. If a student fails to maintain SAP for a second consecutive mandatory trimester, the student stays on Academic Probation. The student will be advised and will be required to meet with an academic adviser in person. Failure to fulfill the conditions of her/his Academic Probation will result in being administratively withdrawn from the program. Failure to meet with an adviser will result in being administratively withdrawn from the program.
  3. If a student fails to maintain SAP for a third consecutive mandatory trimester, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the program.
