Education is the Premise of Progress

IUB admission policy is based on the philosophy of “Open Admissions.” In its purest form, it allows any student with a high school diploma or GCE Advanced Level in any two subjects to attend, thereby, allowing any student who has successfully completed high school the opportunity to pursue an IUB undergraduate degree.

The reality isn’t quite so simple. Some students may not be guaranteed admission to IUB if there are more applicants than available space for new students. In such cases, admission will be based on their GCE grades and on a first-come-first-serve basis.

In the US, the open admissions movement began in the second half of the 20th century and had many ties to the civil rights movement. A significant number of universities operate on this philosophy.

To counter the critics who argue that this might lower educational standards, IUB provides tutoring services to its students. In addition, we have General Education requirements, which provide a solid general background in the arts, sciences, and technology fields before the student can begin taking core courses. In order to take certain programs, students are required to score at a certain level in specific courses.

For instance, students interested in taking engineering courses must have a grade of C or above in every science course. Likewise, students taking business courses are expected to have grade C or above in the social science courses like Economics, Psychology, Introduction to Business & Entrepreneurship etc. Students must also earn a C or above in all their Major courses.

Admission Procedures and Conditions

The Admissions Office is available to assist prospective students with the process of submitting an application for admission. Individuals interested in information about IUB, its programs, and the application process are invited to contact the Admissions Office. IUB reserves the right to limit enrollment in any of its programs, and requirements may vary from program to program.

Admissions Decisions

IUB does not discuss decisions regarding an applicant’s file. Admissions decisions are final and are not subject to appeal.

Rolling Admission

We operate on the Block Plan at IUB, which allows prospective students to apply at any time during the year. However, IUB recommends that applicants apply about one month before their expected program start date to allow sufficient time to complete all necessary requirements for admission. Because our classes are intensive, IUB will not allow any student to enroll in a course after the start date. All new students must undergo orientation before starting classes at IUB.

Conditional Admission

Conditional admission may be granted to an applicant pending receipt of official transcripts or other equivalent official documentation. Some graduate students may also be placed on conditional admission if they do not meet the direct admission requirements, for instance, those with an undergraduate degree in an unrelated field of studies.

To be eligible for conditional admission to matriculate into the program, unofficial transcripts must show receipt of the degree required for admission to the program. Students who have been conditionally admitted are not eligible to receive Student Loans and other financial aid until documentation has been provided and the conditional status removed.

International students requiring a visa are not eligible for conditional admission status. Students who fail to submit all official transcripts by the last day of their first semester will be withdrawn from the program.

Exceptions to Admission Requirements

Applicants with grade point averages lower than the stated admission requirements may be considered for admission in accordance with the policy stated within the admission requirements section of the Academic Catalog for each program. Admission by exception must be approved by the program chair. Exceptions must be justified, documented, signed, placed, and retained in the student’s academic file.

Students admitted on an exception basis will be assigned “Academic/Financial Aid Warning” in accordance with IUB’s Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress. Students must meet the Standards Satisfactory Academic Progress by the next evaluation period. Academic/Financial Aid Warning status does not impact a student’s eligibility for financial aid.

Reapplication for Admission

Applicants who have been denied admission to a given program may reapply to that program after the passage of one year from the date of denial by submitting all documents required of a new applicant. Individuals who intend to reapply for admission are strongly encouraged to contact the Admissions Office prior to reapplying.

Readmission Process after Withdrawal/Dismissal

Students who have been withdrawn from IUB for a period of greater than one year must reapply for admission. These applicants must submit the materials required by the program to which they are reapplying.

Students who have been dismissed from IUB or denied an appeal may apply for readmission one year after the semester in which dismissal occurred or the appeal denied, but must provide demonstrable evidence of likely academic success to be considered. Students who have been dismissed from IUB and not readmitted to a program of study are prohibited from taking coursework at any IUB campus or online.

Students who are readmitted after an absence of one year or more must complete all requirements of the program in the year of readmission. This may require additional course work, replacement of courses that have been substantially modified, and/or other academic requirements.

Readmission after Extended Absence

Students who have been withdrawn from the school for three years or more will be required to have all prior coursework re-evaluated for determination of relevancy to current practice. Faculty members appointed by the program chair will conduct the evaluation of coursework.

Reinstatement

Students who are administratively withdrawn from IUB for failing to remain continuously registered may petition for reinstatement if the period of absence is less than one year. If the petition for reinstatement is granted, students will continue in their existing program of study unless changes required by accrediting or regulatory bodies have been enacted during the period of absence. In such cases, the student will be required to complete the program with any such modifications.

Reinstatement After Administrative Withdrawal for Non-Continuous Enrolment

Students who are administratively withdrawn from IUB for failing to remain continuously registered may petition for reinstatement if the period of absence is less than one year. If the petition for reinstatement is granted, students will continue in their existing program of study unless changes required by accrediting or regulatory bodies have been enacted during the period of absence. In such cases, the student will be required to complete the program with any such modifications.

Early Acceptance

Early Acceptance may be granted to an applicant who is otherwise qualified for admission, but who has not yet earned the degree required for admission. To qualify for early acceptance, the applicant must provide a transcript or other documentation that he/she is in the final year of the required degree program.  Prior to starting classes, the applicant must demonstrate that all admission requirements have been satisfied and provide a transcript documenting receipt of the degree.

Deferral Policy

An applicant admitted to IUB who finds that pressing and unforeseen circumstances prevent him or her from matriculating during the semester for which he or she was admitted, may request one deferral of admission for up to one year from the semester for which he or she was admitted. Deferrals are not automatic. A student who wishes to request a deferral should send a letter to the Admissions Office indicating his or her special circumstances. If deferral is granted, an additional non-refundable deposit may be required. Applicants should consult with the Admissions Office.

English Language Proficiency Policy

Regardless of country of birth or citizenship, immigrant or non Immigrant status, all applicants to IUB whose “first” language is not English must demonstrate proficiency in the English language. Demonstration that English is an applicant’s “first” language can be satisfied if the applicant submits a diploma from secondary school (or above) in a system in which English is the official language of instruction.

If English is not the applicant’s “first” language, the applicant will need to meet the minimum English Language Proficiency standard through submission of an official minimum score from a reputable English testing service to demonstrate proficiency; undertake an IUB English language test; or successfully graduate from the IUB English Language Institute – an intensive English language program.

Enrolment Agreement

Upon admission all students sign an enrolment agreement which stipulates all their academic requirements and duration of academic program. The code of conduct in included in this agreement which is binding to both IUB and the newly admitted student. This agreement equally contains specifications of tuition and terms of the agreement. No student is permitted to begin lectures without signing the enrolment agreement.
