12 PRE-ADMISSION Distance Learning Education Methodology NIU courses are taught using web platform for course instructions via internet to send and receive course information and interactions between students and instructors. Distance Learning removes the traditional boundaries of time and location to offer students and faculty the flexibility not often found in other academic situations. Students can set their own pace and choose the most convenient time and place to study. These courses offered to students are delivered in a web based accessible via internet through platforms. The Web-based course management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes and interact and engage in learning process. The students require log onto a specified URL to participate in the class and to use tools and links for class activities and assignments. These classes do not require the student to attend class meetings in person or on campus but require participation in a timely manner to review course materials and to submit their assignments. Teaching and tutorial services are provided by a core faculty of renowned academics from various universities, with the interaction between students and instructors taking place online. All the phases of the course administration, from registration, student tests, assignments, feedback and grading are handled on the platform available to both students and instructors. Prior entering NIU, It is required that students must have taken a science course from an institution that includes a natural science lab as a part of the course credit towards their General Education course. Skill Level NIU Distance Education or Technology Driven Delivery Modality (online platform) offer students additional and broader educational opportunities and flexibilities, especially to those students who have limited resources, time or flexible schedule to attend on-ground or face-to-face programs. At the same time students must have basic computer skills to be eligible to start distance education learning. At Newport International University each student will be evaluated by going through the following steps prior to admission process in order to determine whether the student has the minimum required skills and competencies to succeed in an on-line education. 1. Students should take a survey to be evaluated for being self-motivated independent learner for an on-line program. There will be three (3) points for answering strongly agree, two (2) points for moderately agree and one (1) point for strongly disagree. If student earns score 43 or more, he/she may be self-motivated and ready for distance education. If they score 23 to 42 points, online course may work for student, but they need to make some adjustment in their schedule Revised December 16, 2014 Page 12

13 and study habits in order to succeed. If they score 22 or less, on-line education may not be the best alternative for the student. 2. Furthermore, NIU staff will interview the potential student to find out their goals and objectives and why they choose certain program and how competent they are to complete their program. Through this process NIU faculty will reconfirm and find out how committed the students are and whether they are ready, willing and able to be admitted to NIU, start and finish their program. 3. NIU staff will reconfirm and make sure that each potential student has access to computer and customary software applications for their on-line assignments, homework and communications. 4. NIU staff will check and test students computer skills and competency to make sure they understand distance education and what it takes to succeed and complete their program. Students go through 2 hours of training per week for 3 weeks to practice and review: Word documents Where is the newsgroup How to read or write in a newsgroup How to communicate with classmates through newsgroup How to post homework How to use the library What is in the student website Which newsgroup is read or write How to use the platform How to get in touch with Tech Support How to manage their time and succeed in their program and more Each week students will be evaluated and finally after the 3rd week NIU Student Services will check their technical competency, their personal commitments and their ability, to make sure they are ready, willing and able to start admission. If our evaluation indicates that student is not ready to be admitted to school, we will continue with the second session of training. After all, we will not admit any students until we are fully confident of their technical ability and their competency for success. In addition, potential students will be informed that they must spend on-line at least 8 to 10 hours for undergraduate, 11 to 12 hours for Master Degree to be able to succeed and learn, and earn their degrees. These suggested amounts of time are to read, study and to do homework assignments. Student who may need additional skills may register for computer skill workshops prior to taking an Internetbased class. Requirements for Students A mature learning style and the ability to be organized and self-motivated. Effective written communication skills and the ability to understand written information and communication. Have daily to weekly activities and assignments with strictly enforced deadlines. A mandatory class participation as required by the instructor and NIU attendance policy.

14 Course roster will include students account for communication between students and instructor and general important information concerning class startup, including instructions on how to access the course website. Possession of a Newport International University student identification number for access to online resources and a student ID card for proctored test. Technology Equipment Requirements and Specifications for Synchronous and Asynchronous delivery modalities Distance Formats Asynchronous Delivery - Single direction communication techniques are used extensively, so students do not have to routinely access course material at specific times. Students may view materials at their convenience, as long as weekly assignments and other projects are completed as required and submitted within the deadline. Synchronous Delivery - Occasionally the faculty will use two-way communication techniques, such as chat- or web-conferencing to enhance the delivery of topics in any course. Technology Equipment Technology Equipment for online, synchronous and asynchronous delivery modalities will be set up for an on-line platform through the use of Moodle. All students require: Java versions 1.5 or 1.6 upgrading all the times 100 MB free disk space for program installation and platform Soundcard with speakers and microphone or headset (or telephone for Telephony users) Internet connection broadband, cable or DSL recommended Windows Client Windows XP/Vista/7 3 GHz processor or better 1 GB RAM or higher Macintosh Client Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 or latest G4, G5 or Intel Processor 5icore Revised December 16, 2014 Page 14

Both the students and the instructor will still have the ability to change the quality of the video streams coming through, so if they are experiencing lag, they can just adjust the video streams to a lower visual quality. If students are split into groups and the instructor has a different video for each group, then only the instructors bandwidth would take a hit. (since groups can only see the video meant for them assuming this is even an option) Subject: BigBlue for synchronous delivery modality Latest version enhancements include: Video Ability for multiple video streams to be displayed simultaneously Up to 15 people can share video simultaneously User selectable video focus Chat Supervised (available in BigBlue chat) Provides visual notification of the fact that Moderators see all chat (including private) Synchronized Notes Enhanced accessibility of Notes with configurable font sizes Headset: Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Revised December 16, 2014 Page 15

How Does Distance Learning Work? Distance learning removes the traditional boundaries of time and location to offer you the flexibility not often found in other academic situations. You can set your own pace and choose the most convenient time and place to study. Classes designated as distance involve a variety of delivery methods, and require that students have access to equipment such as a desktop computer or laptop, a DVD player, or landline phone access. The student is not required to participate in a physical classroom, but may be required to return instructional materials by mail in some courses. Distance education does not require the physical presence of students and faculty at the same location but provides for interaction between students and faculty by such means as telecommunication, correspondence, electronic and computer augmented education services, postal service, and facsimile transmission. The school s response to, or evaluation of, each student lesson is returned to the student within 10 days after the lesson is received by the school; and the institution s response to, or evaluation of, each student project or dissertation is returned to the student within 10 working days. NIU-Curriculum Development Requirements Each course in the curriculum is developed by the subject matter expert based on the Program Learning Outcome and Course Objective Learning. The Program Learning Outcome is reviewed annually for improvement aligning with the industry practices and educational advancement. The subject matter experts are faculty selected based on their educational background, professional practices and teaching experience in online formats. The faculty must possess at least a Master s degree from an accredited institution from the US or assessed equivalency from the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) to maintain a high level of rigor and quality. The faculty developing curriculum, follow the NIU procedure for online courses. The courses have to meet the minimum requirements outlined in each program as Program Learning Outcome.

The University may schedule breaks during which no courses are scheduled. When this occurs, such as during the annual winter break, the non-enrollment period may extend the 14 day limit to include the break. Revised December 16, 2014 Page 22

23 Note: New students who do not meet attendance requirements for the first week of their first course will be withdrawn from the course and must work with their Admissions Advisor to reschedule their enrollment in the program. As for participation, individual participation is required of each student for the successful completion of this course to demonstrate familiarity with the assignments and the ability to transfer theory into practice. Participation in class is required. An absence will result in not earning the points for participation for that class. If a student is absent, he/she does not gain the benefit of class involvement and is not contributing to the learning of other students in the class. Some of the characteristics of effective class participation are: 1. Are the points that made relevant to the discussion in terms of increasing understanding, or are they merely regurgitation of case facts? 2. Do the comments take into consideration the ideas offered by others earlier in the class, or are the points isolated and disjointed? The best contribution following the lead off tends to be those which reflect not only excellent preparation, but good listening, and interpretative and integrative skills as well. 3. Do the comments show evidence of a through reading and analysis of the case? 4. Does the participant distinguish among different kinds of data; that is, facts, opinions, assumptions, and inferences? 5. Is there a willingness to test new ideas or are all comments cautious/safe? 6. Is the participant willing to interact with other class members by asking questions or challenging conclusions? Make-up and Accountability It is The Newport International University policy that faculty members offer a reasonable opportunity to students to complete missed classroom assignments, including written or oral examinations, quizzes, term papers, or other assignments. Furthermore, the makeup assignments and grading scale should be equivalent to the missed assignment and its grading scale. Cancelation, Withdrawal, and Refund Rights The Student has the right to cancel this enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh (7 th ) day after enrollment, whichever is later. Cancellation occurs when the student gives written notice of cancellation to the Director, at the address of the School, shown on this agreement. The Student can also mail, hand deliver, fax or telegram the cancellation. The written notice of cancellation, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail, properly addressed with prepaid postage. Cancellation notices are to be addressed to: NIU, 6700 Fallbrook Ave, Suite #260, West Hills, CA Revised December 16, 2014 Page 23

24 REFUND POLICY: The Student has the right to withdraw from School at any time. If the Student withdraws from the course of instruction after the cancellation period, the School will remit a pro-rata refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges if the student has completed up to 60% of training or less of the instruction within 30 days. The amount of the refund is determined by deducting the registration fee from the total tuition charge, then dividing the remainder by the number of hours in the course to calculate the hourly charge. The refund is the amount in excess of what the student owes for total hours of instruction completed, excluding the non-refundable $170 Registration fee. HYPOTHETICAL REFUND EXAMPLE: Students have a right to a full refund of all charges, less the $170 registration fee, if the student cancels the enrollment agreement on the first day of class or on the seventh day after signing this agreement. The amount retained by the school will not exceed the $170 (one hundred and seventy dollars) registration fee. If a student withdraws from the program after instruction has begun the student will receive a pro rata refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges if the student has completed 60% or less of the instruction. The date of withdrawal is the date of cancellation and is determined as the date the student notifies the school of the decision to cancel, or the last date of attendance, if the student fails to notify the school. The student will be charged for all hours attended. For example, if the Student completes 50 hours of a 100-hour course, and paid $2,000 for tuition-in-full, the student would receive a refund of $1,000. $2000 / 100 = $20 x 50 = $1000 & $1,000 Tuition Total Hourly Hours Total Due Total Due Paid By Hours Charge Completed to School to Student Student If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from federal student financial aid program funds. The School will refund money collected from a third party on the student s behalf, such as Veteran s Benefits and/or WIA funds, if the school cancels or discontinues the course in which the student is enrolled, or if the student drops out. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a third party, the refund will be sent to the lender or agency that guaranteed the funds. Any remaining amount will first be used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the benefits received. Any remaining amount of money will be paid to the student. If the student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. If the student is eligible for a loan guaranteed by the federal or state government and the student defaults on the loan, both the following may occur: (1) The federal or state government or a loan guarantee agency may take action against the student, including applying any income tax refund to which the person is entitled to reduce the balance owed on the loan; and (2) The student may not be eligible for any other federal student financial aid at another institution or other government assistance until the loan is repaid. Leave of Absence Policy If a Leave of Absence is required, a student must submit in writing to the Student Service Department, the basis of the request, expected return date and the initial date of request with the student's signature. This does not automatically reflect the University's approval until the Dean of Academic will Revised December 16, 2014 Page 24

25 sign and approve. A Leave of Absence may be limited to a specified amount of days (NOT TO EXCEED 360 DAYS). Only one Leave of Absence will be granted for a student during any 12-month enrollment period. If the student s leave of absence is NOT approved, the student will be considered to have withdrawn from the University. If the Leave of Absence is approved, the student may return prior to or at the end of the Leave of Absence and resume training without paying additional tuition. Students requesting Leave of Absences must understand that upon return, a revised course completion date will be established, which will delay their graduation date. Re-entry Policy Students who re-enter the university after more than four consecutive semester of absence may require entering the university under current program requirements. An exception to this requirement will be made if the student has four or fewer courses left in his/her program, the re-entry is within two years, and the university still offers the program. Students who leave the university due to military deployment may request special re-admittance consideration. If the student was in academic suspension status when he/she left the university, he/she will be required to appeal his or her status to the campus academic standards committee and his or her reenrollment is conditioned upon a successful appeal with the committee. To apply for re-entry, complete the re-entry application and submit the non-refundable registration fee by the application deadline. Reentry Fee: A $75.00 Re-entry Fee is due upon registration on re-entering the school. Academic Probation Policy As indicated under the section pertaining to Academic Policy, if an undergraduate student fails to achieve a cumulative grade point average of 70% or C and graduate student fail to achieve a cumulative grade point average of B, the student will be placed on academic probation until such time as their cumulative grade point average reaches C for undergraduate and "B" for graduate. During that probationary period, the student must maintain the necessary cumulative grade point average of the program. If a student maintains the necessary grade point average as mentioned above, probation will be removed. However, if the student fails to maintain the minimum C grade point average for undergraduate program and B grade point average for graduate program and/or is unable to achieve a cumulative grade point average within one evaluation period, the student will be dismissed from their program (unless extenuating circumstances are established). Student Appeal Policy A student, who wishes to appeal any disciplinary action and/or decision made by an Instructor, must submit a letter to the Dean of Academics to be reviewed by an Appeals Board. Students must provide supportive documentation along with their letter in order to support his/her position and any mitigating circumstances that may have existed. This Appeals Board shall consist of three (3) attending members.. The student will be notified of the Appeal Board decision within 30 days following the receipt of the student s appeal. The decision of the Dean of Academic shall be final. Revised December 16, 2014 Page 25
