The admissions process is designed to assist the student in evaluating and assessing their educational goals by coming to an agreement with the institution to enroll and receive credit for the desired program. All applicants applying to an academic program must go through the institution’s admissions process.
Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. There are six (6) enrollment terms per calendar year. Applicants are urged to apply in a timely manner for the desired enrollment term. For F-1/I-20 applicants, Admissions Portfolio (AP) should be submitted 30 days prior to the term of enrollment to ensure timely processing. F-1 applicants with a “change of status” should submit 60-90 days prior.
Step 7: Official Enrollment
Once the admissions enrollment documents are received, applicant will be issued an official NSO package, which includes an official enrollment letter, and student identification number (SID#). The official IAU ID card is issued at New Student Orientation.
Step 8: Register for Classes
Students are required to register for classes. Staff from the Office of Student Support will assist with this process. Registration requires choosing the appropriate classes for the term.
Step 10: NSO
IAU holds mandatory New Student Orientations (NSO) to inform students of academic policies, IAUonline, and answer any questions along the way that may help them adjust into being a new student at IAU. NSO is a requirement for all new students. Students who are unable to attend NSO shall be administratively withdrawn from the program.
