Federal student aid funds and/or private student loan funds for undergraduate students are available only to fully matriculated students who are enrolled in a degree program. Nonmatriculated students are not eligible for federal student aid funds.

You must register for and complete at least six units each quarter in order to maintain eligibility for your financial aid funds. If you do not meet the minimum enrollment requirement, you will be required to immediately repay the entire amount of federal student aid funds received, even if you have already spent these funds.


Academic Progress

As a recipient of federal student aid funds, you must be making satisfactory academic progress as defined by the Office of Admissions.


Undergraduate Minimum Progress Information

You are expected to register for a minimum of 12 units each quarter; 8 units must be flight, simulator and academic based courses, 4 units of lab or science courses. In addition, you are required to:

  • complete at least 9 units each quarter (incomplete courses are not included),
  • complete at least 36 units in your most recent three quarters of enrollment,
  • maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0

Satisfying these requirements each quarter satisfies the Institute's minimum progress requirements for undergraduates and will mean that you are in good academic standing. If you do not meet these requirements in any given quarter, you will be placed on probation. Students are expected to plan an academic program so that they will complete the 144 units required for graduation in three years (12 quarters), including the requirements for a major and the General Education, Writing, and Language Requirements.


Notification Requirements

As a recipient of federal student aid funds and/or private student loan funds, you are required to immediately notify the financial aid Office if you:

  • enroll in fewer units than was used to establish your eligibility,
  • receive funding in addition to any: internal or external scholarships, tuition allowance, health insurance subsidy, stipends of any kind including support for research costs, conference attendance, etc.; funding may not exceed your cost of attendance.
  • move to school housing during the award period.

Any of these changes may affect your eligibility for financial aid funds. Depending on your situation, you may be required to immediately repay some or all of your financial aid disbursements, even if the funds have already been spent. You may be ineligible to enroll for future quarters at IAAS, or to receive future federal student aid funds at IAAS or elsewhere, until you have resolved your repayment obligations.



If circumstances require you to withdraw from enrollment during an academic quarter, you must file an official withdrawal request with the admissions Office. The Financial Aid Office will determine the portion (if any) of your federal student aid funds for the quarter that you are eligible to keep. This determination is made using a standard calculation specified is the U.S. Department of Education's regulations. If we determine that you must repay all or a portion of your aid funds, such funds will be immediately due and payable, and you will not be able to obtain future federal student aid funds until your ineligible funds have been repaid. The Academy's refund policy is described in the tuition refund policy and schedule section below.


Tuition Refund Policy and Schedule

Students who take an approved leave of absence are eligible for a tuition refund during the first 60 percent of the quarter. Refunds are calculated on a per diem basis (including weekends and Academy holidays) starting the first day of instruction of each quarter. Tuition is charged on a daily basis (including weekends and holidays) through the first 60 percent of the quarter. After the first 60 percent of the quarter, students are liable for the full amount of tuition that they were charged. Health insurance charges are not refundable after the first day of instruction. For example: a student, who was charged the tuition rate of $10,710 for Autumn Quarter, becomes ill and informs the Admissions Office on the 10th day of the quarter that he or she wants to take a leave of absence. If the petition is approved, the student is charged for 10 days of tuition (10 days x $127.50 per day) or $1,275.00.
