Our Admissions team evaluates applications and support materials for admissions and decides upon the acceptance and placement of students. All application support documentation should consist of either the original documents, appropriately certified electronic copies, or notarized copies. Since the language of instruction and administration is English, documents that are not in English must be accompanied by certified English translations.
Admission decisions are based on prior academic performance, non-academic experience with emphasis in the aviation industry, licensure holdings, involvement in civic engagement activities, and proficiency in the English Language.
The following are the minimum requirements for unconditional admission:
- High school Diploma from an accredited high school or its equivalent.
- English Language Proficiency.
Student applicants must submit the following in order to qualify for admission consideration:
- A completed undergraduate admissions application (available online through the link in the home page)
Once the completed application has been submitted the following will be requested by our admissions team and must be submitted electronically for the process to be completed:
- Official Diploma, transcripts, and certificates of all secondary and post-secondary schools attended.
- Evidence of English language proficiency for non-native English speakers
- A digital head shot photograph
- A copy of the applicant’s passport/official identity card.
English Proficiency can be demonstrated by one of the following or other appropriate means:
- A high school Diploma and/or transcript from an institution whose language of instruction is English, including International Baccalaureate Certificate or Diploma.
- General Certificate of Secondary Education Certificate (GCSE).
- International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with a minimum score of 5.5.
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum iBT total score of 80.
- Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) with minimum score of 750.
- University of Michigan Certificate of Competency in English (ECCE).
- University of Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE).
SAT and ACT scores, though not required for admission, will be important in assisting the Institute with its admission decisions. Applicants must make their own arrangements for the examinations and have the results forwarded to the Institute. An interview is required for every applicant who appears to meet the standards for admission. Interviews will be arranged through the use of technology as a camera on conference call so that the identity of the applicant is verified.
The Institute will reserve the right to make inquiries concerning the accuracy of the information provided in the candidate’s application. Decisions on admission are made in good faith on the basis of information provided by the applicant and their referees. If the Institute discovers at any time that false statements have been made or material information withheld or omitted, it reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission or to terminate registration.
Under certain circumstances, student applicants who demonstrate strong potential for successful completion of the program, but do not meet all entrance requirements, may be considered for conditional admission. Students admitted in this manner must successfully remove any outstanding conditions within the time period stipulated by the Chief Academic Officer in their admissions letter in order to achieve unconditional status and officially continue in the program.
In addition to degree seeking students, we accept non-degree students. Non-degree students are limited to a total of 40 credits and receive a transcript for their academic achievement.
Our Institutional Catalog provides detailed information on our admissions requirements and academic policies.
Academic support, career support, and psychological counselling services are offered to students who need them through teleconferencing by qualified counselors who are on contract. Appointments can be booked for those services through the Student Portal, which is where students can find more information about each service.
The Institute will make every effort to support students with special needs in order to successfully complete their studies and integrate into academic life. Our aim is to ensure equal access to learning to all empowering individuals with special needs in their personal and academic progress. In the case where the special needs have been already identified, prior to admission, the student has the responsibility of providing diagnostic evidence to the Chief Academic Officer. With the student’s informed consent, we will create an appropriate course of action at the recommendation of a licensed counselor. All services that will be provided by Institute will be confidential and subject to the student’s informed consent.
