(Attachment A), an ACICS-accredited institution of higher education (the “Home
Institution”), to enroll in online courses delivered by the ITT Technical Institute,

academic requirements of a certificate, diploma and/or degree program at the student’s
Home Institution.
The Host Institution must hold institutional accreditation from an accreditation agency
recognized by the U.S. Department of Education; any portions of the program to be
offered by the Host Institution must have been approved by the Host Institution’s
accreditation agency for online delivery. This consortium agreement allow students
pursuing certificate, diploma and/or degree programs at the Home Institution to register

established by the Home Institution’s state licensure and accreditation. These online
courses must: (a) meet the learning outcomes established for the equivalent resident
course at the Home Institution; (b) allow students to earn academic credit that is
awarded by the Home Institution; and (c) not equal or exceed 50% of the educational

July 15, 2015
 Appendix H: Principles and Guidelines for Nontraditional Education as
established by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools
 Distance Education Requirements as established by the state in which the Home
school is located.
 All rules and regulations governing distance education and student financial
assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of
1965, as amended.
Coursework will be delivered in an online format via distance education to students
enrolled at the Home Institution and supported by services offered by both the Home
Institution and Host Institution. The Host Institution will maintain control of the learning
management system consistent with the requirements and expectations outlined in this
agreement. The Home Institution retains ultimate responsibility for the delivery of its
educational programs and the satisfaction of its students.
Monitoring of Curriculum and Instruction
The Home Institution must have access to reports, generated by the Host Institution, that
assist with monitoring student attendance and academic performance. The Home
Institution is responsible for accessing the reports, monitoring student attendance and
academic performance, and ensuring appropriate interaction with the student. The
assessment of learning outcomes of students enrolled in resident programs at the Home
Institution must be specifically addressed in the Campus Effectiveness Plan (the “CEP”).
The CEP must identify how data will be collected, set forth the rationale for using these
data, provide a summary and analysis of the data collected, and explain how the data
have been used to improve educational process.
Curriculum Revision
Upon completion of an online course, all students are requested to complete a student
end-of-course evaluation to assess curriculum and instruction. The results of these
assessments are used for continuous quality improvement of online courses and
support services offered by the Host Institution.
Teach-out Plans
The Home Institution maintains full responsibility for properly administering any teachout plans that may be necessary if an educational program is going to be surrendered.
The Home Institution must ensure that all required courses are made available to
students consistent with any approved teach-out plan, which may include offering online
courses, where appropriate.

Online Courses - Any or all of the courses in a program that are marked with a
“+” in the program outline for that program in the Curricula section of the school
catalog may be taught either completely in residence at the school, completely
online over the Internet as a distance education course or partially in residence
and partially online, as determined by the school from time to time in its
discretion. In order to help students become familiar with fundamentals of
taking courses online over the Internet, the school may determine that a
portion of the first online course that a student takes in this program must
be taken online at the school in a supervised setting.
Distance education courses are delivered online over the Internet through an
asynchronous learning network. There is a prescribed schedule for completion
provided for each of these courses. Support materials for each distance
education course are sent to the student. These materials may include course
syllabus, textbook, CD-ROM and other printed documents required for the
distance education course. Students are assigned a cohort group for each
distance education course. Online interaction within their assigned group and
with the instructor is through discussion board and e-mail systems.
Any student who is registered to take a distance education course will be
assigned a unique login identifier and prompted to create a unique password.
The unique login indentifier and instructions on how to create a unique password
will be sent via e-mail to the student’s e-mail account at the school. The student
may not share his or her login identifier or password with other students or any
person at the school. A copy of the school’s privacy policy can be obtained at
http://www.itt-tech.edu/privacy.cfm/. A student will not be charged any fees for
verifying the student’s identity.
