What is the Student Appeal Process? 2017-07-15T12:41:40+00:00

Many of the students who are dropped from a program at Angeles Institute are dropped for the following reasons;

  • Academic Deficiency 
  • Poor Attendance
  • Academic Dishonesty

Some students experience an unforeseen personal hardship for example; the death or illness of a family member that directly affects their ability to focus on academics and succeed. In such a rare circumstance an appeals meeting may be scheduled to discuss whether a student will be allowed to re enter the program.

The official Student Appeals Process is outlined below.

Student Appeal Process

Students who are dismissed, voluntarily withdraw for failure to maintain satisfactory progress, fail to complete the terms of probation, or withdraw for any other reason (except exceeding the maximum program completion time), may request reinstatement or appeal of the dismissal based upon exceptional mitigating circumstances.

Such requests must be made in writing within 10 business days of the dismissal/withdrawal.

Appeal considerations will be based on the following;

  • Student’s overall attendance record
  • Academic progress
  • Professional development
  • Instructors’ recommendations
  • The circumstances (documentation of circumstances is required) surrounding the occurrence/incident that resulted in the withdrawal or dismissal.

The Student should also include their plan of action to correct previous deficiencies.

Re-admission is not guaranteed. An Appeals Board made up of Institute officials &/or the Program Director will review the written request and supporting materials. A decision will be made and the student will be notified in person or in writing within 15 business days. If approved, the student must comply with the terms issued by the Appeals Board for reentry. All decisions made by the Appeals Board &/or Program Director are final.

Reentering Students

Students wishing to reenter will be required to file an appeal for readmission. The appeal needs to be reviewed by the Program Director and/or the Appeals Board.

The following terms apply to any student who is accepted for reentry;

  • Students who have been dropped, withdrawn, or have failed a term will be allowed to repeat once
  • Students may only repeat a total of one term so as not to exceed maximum program time
  • Students must reenter under the admissions, academic, and administrative policies of the current catalog
  • Students must abide by the terms of the Appeals Board for reentry
  • Students financial account must be current at the time of reentry
Do students interact with actual patients? 2017-07-15T12:33:27+00:00

Yes, direct patient care is the majority of clinical rotations for all Angeles Institute students.

Financial Aid

Can I get a larger Pell Grant if my parent died in Iraq or Afghanistan? 2017-07-15T13:24:25+00:00

It depends. If your parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. armed forces and died as a result of military service performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after the events of 9/11, you may be eligible for additional Federal Pell Grant funds if, at the time of your parent’s or guardian’s death, you were

  • less than 24 years of age or
  • enrolled in college or career school at least part-time.

If you meet these requirements and are eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant, your eligibility will be calculated as if your Expected Family Contribution (EFC)were zero. Payments are adjusted if you are enrolled less than full-time.

What is Your Federal School Code? 2017-07-15T13:22:17+00:00

Our school code is 041644

How Do I Apply for Financial Aid 2017-07-15T13:10:49+00:00
Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed to apply for financial aid. Items you should keep on hand when completing the application process are:

  • Federal Tax information for the previous year
  • Bank Statements
  • W-2 Forms
  • Benefit Statements from Social Security, Social Services, or other agencies if applicable
    1. Begin the process by applying for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) at: Federal Student Aid PIN Web Site.
    2. Complete and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
    3. List Angeles Institute as a college of choice – school code: 041644
    4. Receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) acknowledgement about 3-5 days of filing the FAFSA online. If an email was not included in the application the SAR will be mailed in about 7-10 days.
    5. The Financial Aid office will receive an electronic copy in about 5-7 days.

Verification Process

Verification is the federal process of reviewing and verifying information on the completed FAFSA. If selected, the student will be required to submit specific documentation and information to be verified. The documents and information obtained will be compared to the FAFSA and our financial aid office will make any required adjustments. Failure to respond to the verification request will delay your financial aid determination.

Who is my parent? (Filling out FAFSA) 2017-07-15T13:06:29+00:00

Parents divorced? Have a stepparent? Live with your grandmother? Knowing which parent(s) to list on your FAFSA can be tricky these days. Here are some guidelines. Unless noted, “parent” means your legal (biological or adoptive) parent.

  • If your parents are living and legally married to each other, answer the questions about both of them.
  • If your parents are living together and are not married, answer the questions about both of them.
  • If your parents are divorced or separated and don’t live together, answer the questions about the parent with whom you lived more during the past 12 months. If you lived the same amount of time with each parent, give answers about the parent who provided more financial support during the past 12 months or during the most recent 12 months that you actually received support from a parent. If you have a stepparent who is married to the legal parent whose information you’re reporting, you must provide information about that stepparent as well.

The following people are not considered your parents on your FAFSA unless they have adopted you: grandparents, foster parents, legal guardians, older brothers or sisters, and uncles or aunts.

Curious about what information you and your parents will need to provide on the FAFSA? Learn more about the FAFSA and how to fill it out at StudentAid.gov/fafsa.
