Reasonable Accommodations Policy: Individuals with Disabilities
Midwest Institute does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of mental or physical disability. Full commitment is given to providing reasonable accommodations. This may include appropriate auxiliary aids and services, to qualified individuals with a disability, unless providing such accommodations would result in an undue burden or fundamentally alter the nature of the program, benefit or service provided by Midwest Institute. To request an auxiliary aid or service please contact the Director of Education at your chosen location. Individuals requesting an auxiliary aid or service, must complete an Accommodations Request Form 6 weeks before the start of the program or as soon as practicable. Accommodations must be reasonable and supported by appropriate documentation. For complete procedures contact the Director of Education at your chosen campus.
Transfer of Credits
Credits do not transfer towards certificate programs. Midwest Institute will consider credit from other institutions accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Students that are currently enrolled in a certificate program at Midwest Institute may transfer approved credits to a degree program. Students who transfer in from another school must have transcripts sent directly to Midwest Institute from their previous college. After those transcripts are evaluated the student may be accepted into a degree program and approved credits may be transferred. Transfer in students must complete a minimum of 33 semester credits with Midwest Institute in order to receive an associate degree. AOS HVAC/R Specialist requires a minimum of 37 semester credits.
Midwest Institute has over forty eight years of educational experience and enjoys great success in placing its graduates in their chosen careers. Graduates will be assisted in securing interviews with prospective employers, assisted with preparing resumes and provided references for out-of-town employment. They are counseled in dress, appearance and decorum before being scheduled for an interview. Assistance is not only available for students at graduation, but any time after graduation. Midwest Institute cannot guarantee placement.
