Career Services FAQ

CIAT staff have an open-door policy and try to be readily available to assist students with any school or personal issues. CIAT provides academic assistance and tutoring services for students experiencing academic difficulties. Instructors are available by appointment to assist with any area of difficulty, and students may be required to participate in extra help or tutoring sessions to maintain satisfactory enrollment. For academic assistance to be beneficial, students must be as committed to their own success as the school is and take the initiative to discuss their difficulties with their instructors and/or Student Services. Special tutoring or Test Preps are available to students experiencing academic difficulty on an as needed basis.
