New Student Orientation
All new students are required to participate in orientation activities and attend a new student orientation meeting prior to starting their training program. During orientation, Tiako University campus acquaints students with faculty and staff, familiarizes students with the campus environment, policies, and procedures, and sponsors a variety of activities to introduce the students to the University experience.
Tiako University is committed to the practice of early intervention in the guidance of students. We are proactive in the promotion of self-belief, respect for others, and a commitment to the ethic of focused work. To achieve this all faculty follow our policy for the management of classroom misdemeanors.
A classroom misdemeanor is behavior with potential to hinder classroom activities or interfere with students achieving their full potential. Examples of classrooms misdemeanors include: repeated tardiness, lack of effort, failure to meet deadlines, excessive absences, etc.
When a faculty determines a student has committed a classroom misdemeanor, that faculty refers the offending student to the Office of Academic Affairs where an officer personally advises the student in an effort to prevent more serious problems from occurring. The Office of Academic Affairs is responsible for implementing the attendance probation and the academic probation policies.
The administration, staff and faculty are available to assist students in academic and career guidance. Academic Advisors answer questions concerning the student’s individual program, provide academic advising, and may also provide referral services to external agencies as necessary. Tiako also provides advising services to help students plan their program of study. All students are assigned to an Academic Advisor.
Internet Access is a regulated service. It is provided to the student free of charge. Students may lose this privilege if they do not abide by the Internet access rules and regulations.
Student E-Mail Accounts
All Tiako students receive a campus e-mail account. This account is used by administration, faculty and staff to communicate academic and other campus news. This e-mail is often a student’s entry into other Tiako services, such as online registration and Student Government voting and graduation.
The University does not offer dormitory facilities or housing assistance. Information about housing rentals in the community is available online.
