Student and Visitor Compliance with Handbook Regulations

The Student Handbook will guide you through IAIA’s established policies and regulations for expected student behavior, activities and student living. The policies and regulations set forth in the Student Handbook govern student behavior while on IAIA property and during any IAIA activity whether on or off IAIA property. The provisions in the Handbook are not to be regarded as a contract between the students and IAIA. The College may revise the Student Handbook at anytime and may also issue new regulations. Normally, these changes and new regulations will become part of this Handbook after official notice.

The policies and regulations which apply to all IAIA students also apply to visitors.


Visitors to IAIA must be invited by IAIA or by a current student. While at the College, visitors must abide by the procedures and standards set forth in the Student Handbook. It is the responsibility of the student who has invited a visitor to ensure that the visitor adheres to these policies. The College is authorized to remove uninvited individuals and visitors from IAIA for failing to abide by any of IAIA’s policies and regulations.


All visitors must report to security between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. or the CLE Residence Center housing office from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Any individuals visiting the Residence Center, either invited or uninvited, is responsible for his/her actions and is required to abide by all IAIA policies.
