Student Code of Conduct Policy

Course Climate

Student interactions within the closed group course are to be professional, confidential, and intellectual. Any participant who disrupts the course will be given a warning on the first offense. If the disruptive behavior persists and there is a second offense, the student will be removed from the course and issued a refund according to the Transfer, Withdrawal, and Tuition Reimbursement Policy. Degree-seeking students who have three course climate offenses will be removed from the program entirely, documented as an administrative withdrawal (AW) on the student record, and issued a refund according to the Transfer, Withdrawal, and Tuition Reimbursement Policy.

Ethical Computer Use

The Art of Education University provides information technology resources to a variety of users. As members of the online community, all users have the responsibility to use those services in an effective, efficient, ethical, and legal manner. Users are encouraged to respect the privacy of others and to avoid grossly offensive expressions in matters of ethnicity, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability which may create a hostile environment. AOEU reserves the right to monitor the use of technology-related resources for the purpose of determining compliance with the provision of the computer ethics and policies statement.

Substance Abuse

All students shall observe federal, state, and local laws regarding the sale and use of alcohol and drugs. Unlawful possession of alcohol and drugs will be prohibited at AOEU’s headquarters. Students and employees who violate this policy may receive disciplinary sanctions from The Art of Education University including academic dismissal and/or referral to law enforcement officials. Resources: Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment Services Locator

Sexual Misconduct and Gender Discrimination

The Art of Education University is committed to providing and maintaining a positive learning environment free from all forms of discrimination and conduct that may be considered harassing, coercive, or disruptive, including sexual harassment. AOEU will not tolerate any actions, words, jokes, or comments based on another individual’s sex, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected characteristic.

Sexual harassment can be defined as unwanted sexual advances, and/or visual, verbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. This definition includes many forms of offensive behaviors and includes gender-based harassment of a person of the same sex as the harasser.

If you experience or witness sexual or any other unlawful harassment, immediately report this information to the Dean of the Instruction, Heather Crockett. If you feel it would be inappropriate to discuss with the Dean, you should immediately contact the President of the university, Jessica Balsley, without fear of reprisal or punishment.

All allegations of sexual harassment will be quickly and discreetly investigated. Local law enforcement will be notified.

Any student may seek additional services or help from Rape Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) at 800.656.HOPE (4673).

Payment Options

Pay As-You-Go

Most students at AOEU pay for courses as they progress through the degree program. This allows students to pay for one course at a time over the course of the degree. Paired with flexible timelines, students may be able to graduate without additional student loan debt. 

Responsible Borrowing

Many students need to borrow money to finance their college degree. Taking out a student loan may be key to investing in your future, and it is important to borrow responsibly. This means only borrowing for what you need. Track your loans every year and only borrow for school-related expenses to minimize your dept burden upon graduation.

Private Student Loans

Private student loans are education loans funded by a third party lender. Private student loans require a separate application, credit review, and co-signer. Private student loans cannot be consolidated with federal student loans. We encourage students to limit their borrowing of private loans because the repayment terms are not as flexible, and the interest rates are much higher than the federal loan rate.

The Art of Education University does not have a preferred lender list or recommend any lenders. Some degree-seeking students have found success working with CLIMB Credit

Climb Loan Summary:

*The interest rate may be higher or lower than your Annual Percentage Rate (APR) because the APR considers certain fees to obtain this loan and the interest rate.

Code of Conduct

Federal Loans

Federal loans are funded by the U.S. Department of Education. In order to apply for all federal loans, the student must have a FAFSA on file. The FAFSA is the only required application for the Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans. 

The Art of Education University does not participate in Federal Financial Aid at this time.
