Course Load Per Semester

Because of the rigor associated with the AIIGS academic courses and programs it is recommended that graduate students at AIIGS enroll for 6 semester credits (two courses) per semester. Under special circumstances the Dean may permit a full time student to enroll for up to 9 semester hours (three courses).

Out of Class Assignments

All out of class assignments including research projects will be submitted by email when due.

Examinations

For most courses, two examinations are required each semester: midterm and a semester final examination. The semester examination covers all lesson/submissions for the semester unless otherwise stated.

Course Repeat Policy

The grade point average for admissions, academic standing, and graduation is calculated on hours attempted. However, if a student repeats a course, both he original and repeat grades and credits are computed in the grade point average. The grade point average will be calculated using the grade points earned on the second effort.

Transfer Credit

Credits earned at an accredited college or university with grades of C or better may be accepted at AIIGS. AIIGS reserves the right to reject credit earned at other institutions or require a validation examination, especially in professional programs, to meet current content requirements in specific courses. A maximum of 6 semester hours from recognized university or college will be accepted for transfer into graduate degree program.

Honesty

Using the work of another student or allowing work to be used by another student jeopardizes not only the teacher-student relationship but also the student’s academic standing. However, lessons may be discussed with other students, tutors may guide a student’s work, and text books, encyclopedias, and other resource materials may be used for additional assistance, but the actual response must be the student’s own work.

Examinations must be completed in the presence of an approved supervisor without the assistance of books, notes, devices, or outside help unless otherwise specified in the examination directions. The student should have no access to the examination either before or after it is taken.

All examinations must be supervised by a school or approved community official, such as an accountant, professor, a lawyer, a college registrar, or a pastor, who is not related to the student. The student must state clearly on the examination request form the professional status, job title, or any other qualifications of the supervisor that will aid the testing department in the approval process. If a student is enrolled in another school while taking The AIIGS courses, the examination should be taken under the direction of that school’s registrar or testing department. An examination cannot be sent to a supervisor who has the same address as the student unless the address is known to be that of a school, mission facility, etc.

Any violation of this policy will be taken up by The AIIGS Academic Affairs Committee for appropriate punitive action.

GRADING SYSTEM

A student’s academic rating in each subject is determined by the combined results of examinations and course work submissions. The AIIGS operates on a four point scale

A– An outstanding achievement and an unusual
degree of intellectual initiative
(90%-100%)

B– Above average achievement
(80%-89%)

C– Average
(70%-79%)

D– Below average-the lowest passing grade
(60%-69%)

F– Failure
(Below 59%)

To be in good academic standing a student must maintain a “C” average in all coursework. A student whose Grade Point Average (GPA) is below a “C” average at the end of each semester wilt be placed on academic probation.

The grade point average (G.P.A.) is determined by dividing total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits carried. For each A the student earns four grade points per credit; B, three grade points per credit; C, two grade points per credit; D one grade point per credit; and F, no grade points.

Attendance

A student with more than 3 absences in a tele-video conference course will be dropped from that course with a grade of F (Fail). If the student is late to the course more than 20 minutes this will be counted as partial absence.

Teleconferencing Locations

The tentative locations for the teleconferencing and tele-video classes will be stated in the semester schedule. A minimum of twenty enrolled students per location is needed to offer a class.
