The purpose of the Financial Aid Office is to facilitate the financial alternatives available to students to
augment their possibilities of covering the costs of their education.
Instituto de Banca y Comercio manages a variety of financial aid programs, such as the Federal Pell
Grant, Federal Direct Loan, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant and the Federal Work
and Study Program.
Additionally, the Institution participates in programs sponsored by federal and state agencies, such as
Vocational Rehabilitation, Federal Social Security, Work Investment Act (WIA) and the Supplementary
Financial Aid Program and the Merit Grants Program of the Higher Education Council.
The following is a description of the types of financial aid students may apply for.
Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant is a financial aid program for post-secondary level students enrolled in Bachelor,
Associate Degree, certificate or diploma programs. Applying to this program is essential in order to
qualify for other financial aid programs. Eligibility is determined by the use of a standard needs analysis.
Application forms are provided free of charge by the US Department of Education and are available in
each campus’ Financial Aid Office. They may also be obtained via Internet through this URL:
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/es_ES.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
The Federal Supplemental Grant is granted to undergraduate students who demonstrate an exceptional
need. In order to apply for this aid, the student must complete the Institutional Financial Aid Application.
Federal Direct Loan
The Federal Direct Loan program is not a grant. Any amounts received through this program are
considered a loan which students must re-pay.
Interest rates for this type of Federal Loan are adjusted according to market fluctuations and the value of
Federal Reserve bonds. Applications are available in our institutions and via the Web at
www.direct.ed.gov/.
Loan applications are given to students who comply with the requirements specified by the Delinquency
Reduction Plan currently in effect.
The Financial Aid Office will evaluate each case based on its merits and will decide for which students it
will process the loan.
Federal Work and Study Program
This financial aid program provides work to undergraduate and graduate students.

Financial Aid Office facilitates applications for participation in this program.
[43]
The Educational Opportunities Act (Law 138 of 1999)
Supplementary Financial Aid Programs (FSEOG) and grants for post-secondary students are composed of
two (2) types of financial aid for students who are enrolled in post-secondary academic institutions and
qualify for said aids. Both are based on the financial needs of qualified students.
The grant program is available for new students in post-secondary institutions who graduated from high
school with a grade point average of 3.00 or more.
AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS
The amount assigned to each student will be determined by the institution based on the cost analysis of
the student and his/her financial needs. The amount of the aid will never be higher than the financial need.
The financial aid assigned under these programs will be used with priority to pay the tuition costs of the
institution where the student is enrolled.
CONSEQUENCES OF DEFAULTING ON THESE OBLIGATIONS
If a student who receives funds from these programs does not comply with any of the obligations
established by regulation, the Office of Post-secondary Development of the Higher Education Council
may suspend his/her participation in the programs and require repayment of the pertinent funds.
STUDENT RIGHTS
Every student enrolled in the institution has the right to know the Satisfactory Academic Progress
Policy and its implications on the financial aid received. Likewise, he or she may examine the documents
related to accreditations, permits, licenses and operational authorizations. These are available in the
Campus Director’s Office.
REFUND POLICY

policy and the regulations of the Federal Department of Education. The Refund Policy regulates the way
in which total tuition costs will be adjusted in the student’s enrollment agreement (Contract), if the
student decides to withdraw. The policy establishes that when a student participates in Title IV funds and
withdraws from an institution during the payment period during which s/he attended, the institution must
determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned up to the date s/he withdrew from the

amount will be reimbursed to the Federal Department of Education. The Financial Aid Office will
determine the corresponding amount of grant or the necessary adjustment. Title IV funds included in the
calculation are: Direct Loan (subsidized and non-subsidized), Pell Grant, SEOG and State Education
Grant.
A student’s withdrawal date is the date in which the student begins the withdrawal process, according to
what is established by the Institution; or when a student notifies, verbally or in writing, his/her intention
to stop attending class. If the student ceases to attend class without providing the oficial notification to the

program of study.

the percentage of Title IV earned on the student’s withdrawal date and the difference will
be credited to the student’s account.
2) If the student processes a withdrawl during the period in which the Institution earns 1%
to 10% of the Title IV funds, 90% of the tuition costs will be credited to the student’s
account.

the student’s account.
7) During the following 51% to 60% of Title IV, 40% of the tuition costs will be credited to
the student’s account.
8) After the date in which the Institution has the right to earn 60% of the Title IV funds, the
Institution will claim 100% of the Title IV funds and the student will not receive a credit
for the concept of a refund to his/her account.
Reimbursement to Title IV will occur during the 45 days after the date the institution determines the
termination or withdrawal of the student. Reimbursements to students will be processed during the 14 days
following the date in which the student’s account reflects a balance-credit.

policy.

consecutive period in which at least one day of regular classes, exams or their reviews are offered.
Credit of payments to student accounts will take effect in the following way:
1. One payment for each term to be credited at the end of the late enrollment period or the
maximum term authorized for the addition or elimination of courses.
2. After the authorized period for adding or eliminating courses; partial withdrawals will not affect
the number of enrollment credits. The student’s account will not be affected by changes in the
number of credits.
3. After the period for adding or eliminating courses, a determination of whether the student is a
full-time, ¾ parts or part-time student will be made.
4. A student will be considered as having attended class if s/he attends at least one day of class for
each course in which s/he is enrolled.
5. Students that do not attend any of their classes, refer to the Enrollment Cancellation Policy.
The Institution will not make changes to the enrollment status (full-time, ¾-time, or part-time) during the
course of the term if the regulatory period for adding or eliminating courses has passed.
If a student changes his/her enrollment status between terms, then the Institution will recalculate the
student’s financial aid in relation to his/her new status and will recalculate the total cost of admissions
(COA).
[47]
REGISTRAR
The Registrar’s Office of each campus keeps its students’ academic records. It is responsible for the
enrollment and registration of course programs and the dispatch of students’ credit transcripts,
certifications, academic progress reports and diplomas.
CONSECUTIVE ABSENCES AND ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWALS
When a student is absent two (2) consecutive times to one or more of his/her courses, his/her professors
will notify the Counselor’s Office. The Counselor and/or Retention Coordinator will contact the student
via telephone or letter and will proceed to schedule him/her for an appointment in his/her office. If the
student does not respond or attend the appointment, the applicable partial or total administrative
withdrawal will be processed against the student. The absent student has the right to be readmitted to class
after presenting and explaining his/her reason for absence to one of the following officers:
1. Counselor – studies the case, approves and issues the readmission to class document.
2. Professor – the last professor to sign the document will return it to the Counselor’s Office.
No student will be readmitted to class without having gone through the readmission process after having
been reported to counseling. If a student is absent for 14 consecutive days (including Saturdays, Sundays
and holidays), this will be considered as an unauthorized abandonment of the training and the Registrar’s
Office will immediately process the applicable partial or total administrative withdrawal, retroactive to
his/her last day of attendance.
ADDRESS CHANGE
Students must submit evidence of their mailing address. Students are responsible for updating this
information. All address changes must be notified to the Registrar’s Office or via electronic mail on the
Instituto de Banca y Comercio portal. The institution is not responsible for official notices that are not
received.
PROGRAM CHANGES
Students may request a program change at the end of the first term by presenting the corresponding form
in the Registrar’s Office. Program changes are approved by the campus’ Academic director.
GRADUATION CERTIFICATE AND CREDIT TRANSCRIPTS
Students who meet graduation requirements and have no debt with the Instituion may request a transcript or
certification with final grades, free of charge, from the Registrar’s Office. Additional copies have a cost of
$2 each.
No official document will be granted until the student has complied with all of the institution’s academic,
administrative and financial requirements.
[48]
DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING A PARTIAL OR TOTAL WITHDRAWAL
The deadline for requesting a partial or total withdrawal will be the last day before final exams. The date
will be indicated in the Institution’s academic calendar. Students will request the corresponding form for
the partial or total withdrawal directly from the Registrar’s Office, where the process will begin and end.
ENROLLMENT PERIODS
Enrollment will take place on the days and hours established in the academic calendar. After enrollment,
students may make modifications to their program of study during the late enrollment period.
Modifications during the period of change: In order to add or delete courses or change sections, students
must complete a form for program changes.
ENROLLMENT CANCELLATION POLICY
Cancellation policy before the start of school
Students who cancel their enrollment have the right to request a refund of any amount paid, excluding the
fee for seat reservation.
Cancellation policy after the close of the enrollment period (second week of school)
A student’s enrollment may be cancelled under the following circumstances:
1. If the student attends class at least one time and then cancels before the sixth day, s/he will have
the right to a 100% refund of the tuition cost, excluding the fee for seat reservation.
2. The Registrar’s Office will initiate the total cancellation of the enrollment of students who were
reported as “no-show” (no attendance to any of their classes) by professors during the late
enrollment period.
3. The Registrar’s Office will initiate the partial cancellation of enrollment and the Collections
Office will proceed to make the respective adjustment to the total cost of the enrollment tuition
of students who did not attend a particular class or classes in which they were enrolled. Grant
payments will be adjusted according to the final, resulting academic load.
VALIDATION OF CREDITS POLICY
PROGRAMS LEADING TO AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE
I – Validations and Transfers of Credits:
1. Definitions
Validations – All credits of subjects completed with a grade of 2.00 C or more found in the
curriculum of a higher education and/or authorized non-university post-secondary institution at a
national level (Puerto Rico and USA) or its foreign equivalent will be recognized. In order to
process an application for the validation of credits, applicants must have been admitted to the
corresponding program.
Transfer of credits- All credits of subjects completed with a 2.00 C or more that are found in the
curriculum of an associate degree or diploma program of the same institution. Once the transfer
of credits is approved, the transfer will appear on the student's record as "T" accompanied by the
grade obtained by the student in the course that was transferred.
[49]
2. Application – In order to apply for validation or transfer, during the enrollment period, the
student must notify the Registrar Department that s/he is a graduate of a diploma program from
IBC (in the case of a transfer) or present an official academic transcript dispatched by another
authorized institution. In the case of a validation from another institution, the student must
provide the CATALOG and, if requested, the syllabus for the courses to be validated.
3. The Academic Director will decide whether or not the requested credits will be accepted.
4. Students may request to transfer up to 80% of the credits of other IBC programs in order to
complete their program of studies of an associate degree and up to 50% in the case of validations
from other institutions. Credits previously taken at IBC or other eligible institutions do not expire
for the purposes of a validation or transfer.
5. Courses taken at IBC and transferred to an Associate Degree Program will be considered at
same grade obtained in the diploma program and will be considered for the calculation of
cumulative grade point average. Validations from other institutions will be considered with
denomination (Y) in the academic record and will have no effect in the calculation of
cumulative grade point average.
the
the
the
the
6. Resolution criteria
a) For studies completed in universities in Puerto Rico and the United States of America,
courses with consistent content may be validated, as long as the academic load is not lower in
hours.
b) For studies completed in a foreign university, the validation will be resolved by using the
previous criteria. The validation of an authorized agency will be required in order to validate
courses taken abroad.
II – Credits by Examination
1. Definition – Students who understand that they possess the knowledge or the professional
experience that is taught in a course may challenge it via an examination.
2. Application – Students will request to challenge a course when it appears in their program of
study. In such cases, during the enrollment process, students will request to challenge the course
by presenting an Application for Credits by Examination form before the Registrar’s Department.
3. The tuition for challenged courses will be differed until the student takes the exam and obtains the
corresponding results. In most cases, this will occur in the first week of the term. The cost for
each exam will be $50.00 per credit.
4. If the exam is not approved, the course must be taken.
5. No more than two courses may be challenged for each academic term.
6. The transcript of credits will indicate “YR” for challenged courses. The course(s) will not be
considered for the calculation of the cumulative grade point average (GPA).
[50]
PROGRAMS LEADING TO A DIPLOMA
Instituto de Banca y Comercio accepts the concept of validation of credits for courses passed by
enrollees in university or non-university post-secondary institutions that are duly authorized and
accredited at the national level (Puerto Rico and USA). Due to the occupational nature of our programs,
students may transfer a maximum of six (6) credits with a “C” grade or more for programs of 38.5 and 36
credits, and up to nine (9) credits for programs of 54 and 57 credits.
The request for transfer of credits will be initiated by the student in the Academic Director’s Office no
later than 8 weeks after the beginning of the first academic studies session of the institution. The student
must submit the official transcript of credits from the institution where s/he studied for proper processing.
Validation or transfer of IBC credits to other institutions
The institution receiving the student will determine whether or not they will accept the credits for courses
taken at Instituto de Banca y Comercio.
SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY (SAP)
Legal Reference: CFR Part 34 Section 668.34
http://www2.ed.gov/policy/highered/reg/hearulemaking/2009/integrity-qa.html
The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires that institutions of higher education establish
and apply standards of academic progress that all students must meet in order to qualify and remain
eligible to receive financial aid Title IV programs of the Federal Department of Education. Therefore, in
order to maintain a satisfactory academic progress that makes them eligible to receive financial aid,
students must maintain a specific (cumulative) grade point average and a good standard in the approval of
the courses required for the completion of the program throughout the academic program and within a
specified timeframe. For programs of less than two years, the academic progress will be assessed at the
end of each academic period in which a financial aid payment is made and for the rest of the programs
(associate degrees), at least once during each academic year.
Applicability
This policy applies to all students enrolled in Instituto de Banca y Comercio, whether full-time or parttime, who receive or do not receive federal financial aid or any other type of aid.
SAP Assessment Periods:
Diploma Programs – in diploma programs (36, 38.5 credits and 54 credits), the academic progress is
determined at the end of the second term, every two academic 8-week session, (every 16 weeks).
** For the Advanced Hairstyling and Design program, the academic progress is determined after
completing three (3) 8-week academic terms.
Associate degree programs – academic progress is determined at the end of each of the program’s
academic years. However, for students with a non-satisfactory progress or probationary period, their
status of improvement or no improvement will be evaluated at the end of the next academic term (not at
the end of the year).
[51]
Minimum Required Percent of Completed Credits
For each specific Evaluation Point, every student is required to complete a minimum of 66%, 75%, 83%
or 100% of the intended credits to date or at the payment period, according to each particular case. * See
tables.
Repeated courses are counted as intended every time they are taken. Transferred or validated credits are
considered as intended and completed for the purposes of the calculation of the satisfactory academic
progress.
For example: The calculation of the academic progress within an Evaluation Point requiring a 66%
approval of the intended credits, for a student who intended 18 credit- hours, must be 12 credit-hours.
A student who intended 9 credit-hours must have completed 7 credit-hours (rounded to the closest whole
number).
Minimum Cumulative Average
For each specific Evaluation Point, every student is required to maintain a cumulative minimum average
(GPA) between 1.50 and 2.0 points.
Courses with the following grades: withdrawal (W), failed (F), incomplete (I), not approved (NP),
unreported grades (NR), or course in progress (PC) will not be considered in the calculation of the
satisfactory academic progress.
In the case of repeated courses, only the highest grade will be considered.
Maximum Time to Complete a Program
Students who at the end of their academic program have not approved the graduation requirements will
have additional time to complete their requirements one point five (1.5) times the normal amount of
required credits to complete the program (extended period).
Students who have intended the maximum of credits or time allowed will have all their financial aid
suspended. Remedial courses will not be considered in this calculation. Repeated courses and validated or
transferred credits are included.

[53]
When a student does not meet any of the indicated standards within a specific term, the student will be
placed on:
Notice of Possible Loss of Financial Aid (only for 36,gpa 38.5 or 54 credit programs)
Students who receive federal financial aid are placed on notice of suspension from financial aid when
they fail to meet the qualitative (GPA) or quantitative (percentage of completed courses) requirements of
the satisfactory academic progress policy. (IBSAP Warning Status)
Financial Aid Warning – Status that identifies non-compliance with the SAP, but does not change
the student’s eligibility.
Students will be allowed to continue receiving financial aid during the warning period; however, they
must overcome their academic deficiencies at the end of this period in order to return to a satisfactory
academic progress.
If they again fail to meet the quantitative and/or qualitative requirements at the end of the warning period,
they will need to qualify for another final and probationary term (see what follows) before finalizing the
subsequent term or they will have their financial aid suspended. (See Financial Aid Suspensions).
Probationary Period
For 36, 38.5 or 54 credit programs, students who, at the end of the warning period, do not meet the
minimum requirements of the satisfactory academic progress policy; or who, in associate programs do not
meet, the established minimum requirements for the first time, will be placed on probation for an
additional academic term if they request a reconsideration of the suspension of financial aid and, as a
result, are reinstated as eligible to receive financial aid. (IBSAP Probation)
Financial Aid Probation – Status that identifies non-compliance with the SAP and has gone through
the appeals process.
These students will be allowed to continue receiving financial aid during the probationary period.
Students who are suspended for surpassing the maximum time to complete their program will not be
eligible for a probationary period.
Suspension of the Financial Aid
Students who do not meet the minimum requirements established by the satisfactory academic progress
policy during the probationary period will have their financial aid suspended. Students with suspended
financial aid will not receive any type of federal aid to pay their tuition costs (grants, student loans, work
and study, etc.) (IBSAP Suspension)
Eligibility to receive aid may be reestablished if the student, as a private student, repeats the deficient or
failed courses and meets all the standards of satisfactory academic progress. Students who have been
suspended from receiving financial aid and are later reinstated will not be eligible to receive financial aid
retroactively.
Procedure for Requesting Reconsideration
Students who cease to be eligible to receive financial aid for failing to meet the minimum standards of
[54]
satisfactory academic progress, may request the reconsideration of this decision by submitting the form
Request for Reconsideration of Financial Aid Suspension due to non-satisfactory academic progress
to the Academic Counselor’s office of their campus.
After an evaluation of their, students will be notified, in writing, of the decision made. If the
reconsideration is denied at the Academic Counselor’s level, students may re-apply for reconsideration
before the Institutional Appeals Committee, made up of an academic counselor, the program coordinator
and the Academic Director. In this case, their application for reconsideration should again be submitted to
the Academic Director’s Office along with the denial letter from the Academic Counselor who evaluated
their case.
Following are the steps to request reconsideration:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Complete and submit the Application for the Reconsideration of the Suspension of
Financial Aid for non-satisfacory academic progress in the Counselor’s Office.
Clearly describe the circumstances that affected your academic performance on the form.
Provide written documentation about said circumstances.
Attach documents that validate your statements.
Identify actions to ensure you will not repeat a low performance in the future.
Sign and date the application.
Some examples of acceptable reasons that should be documented are:
1.
2.
3.
Personal illness or accident during the term in which the student obtained a low
performance. It should be evidenced through a note from a doctor or health professional.
Death in the family. It should be documented through a death certificate or obituary.
Other circumstances outside of the student’s control that caused the student to obtain a
low academic performance.
Deadline to Apply for Reconsideration
Applications must be submitted to the Academic Counselor’s Office (first instance) or the Academic
Director’s Office (second instance) during the late enrollment period or the period for making changes to
the academic program following the written notification of non-compliance.
It is the student’s responsibility to decide whether or not s/he will apply, based on the merits of each case
and to do so during the enrollment period established by IBC’s Academic Calendar.
PROCEDURE FOR CAMPUS TRANSFERS
The procedure for transferring from one campus to another should be initiated by the interested student
before the Campus Registrar’s Office where the student is enrolled on the dates identified in the academic
calendar; and conclude in the Registrar’s Office of the campus where s/he is transferring.
In order for the application to transfer to be considered, the student must present evidence of having
achieved a Satisfactory Academic Progress and must have complied with all the institution’s contractual
commitments.
[55]
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
a) Apply for graduation within the term stipulated in the institution’s academic calendar.
b) Complete all courses required by the program of study.
c) Obtain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 points or more.
d) In the case of associate degree programs, obtain a GPA of 2.00 points, approve core or
concentration/major courses with a grade of no less than C.
e) In the case of associate degrees, if a student obtains a grade lower than C (D or F), s/he must repeat the
course and complete the corresponding application, evaluation and enrollment processes.
f) Comply with the academic standards established by the institution’s Satisfactory Academic Progress
Policy.
COURSE CODING SYSTEM
Course titles are preceeded by a 4-letter code and four digits. The four letters abbreviate the name of the
program or course and the number is arbitrary. The sequence in which they are taken may vary, so long as
pre-requisites are not violated.
[56]
ACADEMIC COUNSELING AND RETENTION
Aware of the fact that our students experience decisive moments in their lives that require adjustments to
their personal and family lives, Instituto de Banca y Comercio offers orientation and counseling services.
We offer a variety of activities aimed toward helping them achieve a better understanding of themselves
and the maximum development of their potential. Among them are individual and group orientations,
seminars, workshops, group dynamics and all applicable vocational tests. This office also intervenes in
cases of applicable academic probations, repetition of courses, readmissions, section changes, transfers
and all situations that may affect students academically. The Retention Office directly works with
attendance problems, authorizations of readmission to courses, excuses and any situation related to the
daily classroom attendance.
CAREER SERVICES / EMPLOYMENT
The Office of Career Services / Employment helps active and graduated students in the development of
skills to help them seek employment by means of orientations, workshops, simulated interviews, job fairs,
etc. Students are referred to employment interviews in their areas of study. It is important for the
Institution that students find jobs. However, Instituto de Banca y Comercio does not guarantee that
students will find a job during or after they have completed their program of study. It also does not
guarantee specific salaries for the job offers that are available in the market. Students who graduate from
programs that require Board examinations receive orientation in this service area.
[57]
ACADEMIC RULES
DEFINITION OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR
PROGRAMS LEADING TO AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE
The academic year is defined as one of 36 credits in semesters. In a regular, full-time program of study, it
will normally take a student 3 terms of 16 weeks to complete one academic year and 5 to 6 terms of 16
weeks to complete a program. The number of terms will depend on the total duration of the program in 72
and 83 credits. It will also depend on the amount of credits the student enrolls in for each term and the
credits that are validated or challenged. The maximum time allowed to complete a program is 1.5 times
the normal duration of the program.
PROGRAMS LEADING TO A DIPLOMA
The academic year is defined as one of 36 credits in a 4-month period. In a regular, full-time program of
study, it will normally take a student 4 terms of 8 weeks to complete one 36 credit program and 6 terms of
8 weeks to complete a 54 credit program. The maximum time allowed to complete a program is 1.5 times
the normal duration of the program.
UNITS OF CREDIT
PROGRAMS LEADING TO AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE
Our academic associate degree programs are structured into trimester credits. One unit of credit in a
trimester is equivalent to a maximum of one hour of study in the classroom and two hours of tasks or
work done by students outside of the classroom, two hours of experience in the laboratory, or three hours
of practice (internal or external) during the sixteen weeks of any of our academic terms.
PROGRAMS LEADING TO A DIPLOMA
Diploma programs are structured into 4-month-period credits. One credit-hour is equivalent to 20 hours
of instruction in a classroom or laboratory, plus a minimum of 5 hours of tasks or work done by the
student outside of the classroom and 30 hours of practice (internal or external) during an 8-week term.
ACADEMIC TERM
PROGRAMS LEADING TO AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE
An academic term is each one of the three 16-week terms into which we divide our academic year known
as a term. Our calendar consists of Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
PROGRAMS LEADING TO A DIPLOMA
An academic term is understood as one of the six 8-week lective periods into which we divide the yearly
calendar.
ACADEMIC LOAD
A program of study is complete when students approve the courses indicated by their program of study. In
other words, 8 to 10 credits per 8-week term in Diploma programs and 12 to 16 credits per term in
Associate Degree programs.
[59]
Students who wish to increase their academic load per term must complete and submit the program
changes form which must be approved by the Academic Director.
NUMBER OF EVALUATIONS
The evaluation procedure for each course subject requires the administration of a minimum of five (5)
formal evaluations, including a grade for each assignment and/or task and a grade for daily attendance, as
well as any other requirements previously established by the professor.
EVALUATION SYSTEM
The evaluation of a student’s academic performance is determined based upon a point scale of 0 to 4
points (GPA) or percent. This alphabetical system has the following values:
GPA
Percentage

the final grade. In the case of an NR, the course will not be considered as intended. The student will be
required to repeat the course without an additional charge.
T(N) – “N” will be the transferred grade.
[60]
PASS (APPROVED)/NOT PASSED (NOT APPROVED)
The pass or not-passed policy only applies to courses of internal or external practice for the following
academic programs leading to a diploma: Regional and International Cuisine, International Pastry and
Baking, Bartending, Cosmetology, Barbering and Hairstyling, Nail Technology and Esthetics. These
courses are taken under circumstances in which it is difficult to use the established evaluation system.
When a student receives a P in an external or internal practice course, s/he has complied with the
requirements of the practice and progresses in the Intended Credits. This grade acknowledges that the
course credits have been approved, but it does not affect the calculation of the accumulative grade point
average. When a student does not complete the assigned hours of a practice course or is suspended from
said course by the practice supervisor, s/he receives an “NP” and an Incomplete, which can be removed
by completing the missing hours in the following academic session. If the student does not complete the
hours, then the “NP” and Incomplete becomes an “NP” and the student will not be eligible to obtain
his/her diploma until the NP is removed.
INCOMPLETE POLICY
By incomplete, it is understood that a student did not complete the requirements of a course in the
stipulated timeframe for justified reasons. An incomplete will be accompanied by the grade obtained at
the end of the session, having granted a “0” or “F” to the work not peformed in class. In regular courses
that do not include an external or internal practice, the removal of the incomplete must be done within the
established period of six (6) business days from the next academic session.
If it is not done within the established timeframe, the Registrar’s Office will proceed to record the grade
that accompanied the incomplete in the student’s academic record. The transaction to remove the
incomplete must be initiated by the course professor and, in his/her absence, the Program Coordinator.
The grade that accompanies the incomplete will not be considered in the calculation that determines the
student’s grade point average until the incomplete has been removed.
COURSE ELIMINATION AND OTHER CHANGES
The Institution reserves the right to eliminate courses, consolidate sessions, change schedules and
professors and make changes to the academic calendar according to the institution’s circumstances or
needs.
COURSE REPETITION
ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
Core and concentration/major courses in which the student obtains a D or F must be repeated in order to
meet graduation requirements. This implies additional costs for students for each credit. Repeated courses
are considered as Intended Credits for the purposes of the satisfactory academic progress policy and are
counted in the calculation of a full-time, ¾ or part-time load for purposes of the disbursement of Title IV
funds in a given term. A student will be allowed to repeat a course under the same conditions even if the
course was approved and his/her objective is to improve his/her grade point average. For purposes of Title
IV, only one repetition per course will be allowed. Only the highest grade from those obtained in repeated
courses will be considered.
DIPLOMA PROGRAMS
The distinction of full-time or part-time student does not apply given that, for the purposes of costs, the
total costs are for the entire program and not for the load each student carries during a given term.
However, in order to enable the student to be able to approve all contemplated courses in his/her
academic program and graduate, s/he will have the option to repeat courses with “D” or “F” without
[61]
additional costs if his/her objective is to reach the grade point average of 2.00 that is required for
graduation.
CO-CURRICULAR AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
We consider it highly important for students who attend an academic institution to have the opportunity to
participate in activities related to their field of study or general interests; as well as the opportunity to
make new friends.
Some of the events that are part of the collegial lifestyle of our students include field trips, conferences,
debates, exhibits, wellness clinics, community services, blood donations, job fairs, dances, bands,
concerts, and sports and cycling events.
UNIFORMS
Students are responsible for using the uniforms designated for the program during class, including labs
and practices (internal and external).
PROFESSOR TARDINESS OR ABSENCE
Students are obligated to wait for professors in the classroom for 15 minutes for each class hour (1) and if
the class has a two (2) hour duration, then students must wait for 30 minutes.
ATTENDANCE POLICY
Instituto de Banca y Comercio recognizes that classroom attendance is fundamental to the development
of the educational and formative process. For this reason, classroom attendance is mandatory. If a student
is absent on two consecutive occasions, his/her case will be referred to the Counseling Office.
If a student is excessively absent, this may be cause for suspension from financial aid programs, as
stipulated in the Federal Regulation. In cases where students lose their eligibility for financial aid due to
attendance, they will assume all responsibility for payments not made against their debt.
The counselor or professor is authorized to justify absences when a student presents a written excuse; this
may be for an illness, death in the family, military service, citation to a court of justice or other legitimate
reason.
In the extreme case where an absence cannot be avoided, an experience or task of a similar characteristic
from the one missed will be assigned by the professor of the area of study. This way, if a student is unable
to attend one or more classroom meetings, s/he is responsible for completing a written assignment or a
practice on the stipulated dates. Absences replaced by make-up work are considered as accumulated hours
and will negatively impact the classroom attendance grade. Each professor will submit the class
replacement plan to the Counselor’s Office on a weekly basis for the corresponding data entry of
replacement instruction hours in each one of their courses.
In the case where a student does not make up the assigned experience or task and accumulates more than
30% of the total course hours as absences, the final course grade may be a deficient (D) or fail (F), in
which case the student will have to repeat the class at a later time. Each professor will inform students, at
the beginning of the course, how s/he will calculate the attendance and course grade in each of his/her
courses.

COPYRIGHT POLICY
PURPOSE
The purpose of the Copyright Compliance Policy is to provide a general understanding of copyright
principles as it relates to the use of copyrighted works and also to provide guidelines and procedures for
obtaining copyright permission to use copyrighted works.
Unauthorized use and distribution of copyrighted works can deprive creators and publishers of a fair
return on their work and inhibit the creation of new works. Respect for the intellectual and creative work
and property of others has always been essential to the mission of institution. As members of the
academic community, we value the free exchange of ideas. Just as we do not tolerate plagiarism, we do
not condone the unauthorized use and distribution of intellectual and creative work.
Unauthorized use and distribution of copyrighted works can harm the entire academic community. If
unauthorized use and distribution proliferate on a campus, the institution may incur a legal liability. Also,
the institution may find it more difficult to negotiate agreements that would make copyrighted products
more widely and less expensively available to members of the academic community.
This policy covers classroom issues such as photocopying, online and computers and software users, and
course packs. It also covers library uses for print and electronic reserves, library and document delivery.
Other copyright and intellectual property policies may complement this policy by either supplementing
and/or complementing the material described here.
This policy provides practical advice and procedures on copyright-related matters; however, it is
not a substitute for legal advice, and proper legal advice should be obtained when necessary.
COPYRIGHT DEFINITION
Copyright law falls within the ambit of intellectual property. Copyright is a limited right to certain
original material that has been written or otherwise recorded. However, the bundle of rights that a
copyright owner has (i.e., reproduce, distribute, make derivative works, publicly display, publicly
perform, and the like) may be limited by certain exemptions and exceptions such as, for example, the
right of first sale, the TEACH Act, fair use, the library exception, the right to make archival copies,
among others.
COPYRIGHT PROTECTED
Copyright" protects the original content of an authored work for a limited time as defined by the
Copyright Act. The "authored work" must be "fixed" in a physical medium in which the content is either
readily perceived or may be perceived with the aid of a machine or other device. Because the copyright
subsists regardless of the nature of the physical medium, it is an intangible right and hence a type of
intellectual property right.
Generally, the reproduction, preparation of a derivative work, distribution, public display, and/or public
performance of an authored work is the exclusive province of the copyright owner. However, the
copyright owner may license one or more of these rights to another third party.
Copyright law does not protect ideas, procedures, principles, methods of operation, or facts,
although compilations containing this information may be protected. In other words, the entire
content of an authored work is not generally protected word-for-word, but to the extent that it
[63]
contains original expression, it is this original content which is protected. One notable exception
to this, however, is that works of the United States (i.e., the federal government or other
instrumentality of the United States) are generally not protected by copyright.
TEACH Act
The "TEACH" Act is also referred to the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization Act of
2002. It provides a copyright exemption whereby an instructor or a student may display or perform
legally acquired (or legally made) copyrighted material in face-to-face teaching or distance learning so
long as it is directly relevant to the course without needing permission from the copyright owner so long
as the copyrighted material has been made by, at the direction of, or under the actual supervision of an
instructor. A notice should be provided which states that the material may be subject to copyright
protection.
For face-to-face teaching, virtually any kind of copyrighted work may be displayed or performed so long
as it is relevant to the course topic.
FACULTY
If a faculty member or instructor wants to show or play during a class certain relevant copyrighted work
such as a movie, music clips, or show images of artworks, no copyright permission is necessary nor is any
licensing fee required in the context of a face-to-face teaching activity in a traditional classroom setting.
However, this exception does not cover copyrighted works that are designed or otherwise marketed for
distance learning and/or for textbooks, workbooks, academic course packs, and other materials that
students generally purchase for class.
Further, this exception also does not cover any material which the instructor wants students to study, read,
listen, or watch on their own time outside of class.
Accordingly, unless such an exception such as the "face-to-face teaching" exception (i.e., TEACH Act) or
fair use applies or unless the work is not covered by copyright (e.g., expired copyright, work dedicated to
the public domain, etc.), one must obtain copyright permission to use the work (including reproduce,
distribute, make a derivative work, publicly perform, and/or publicly display).

organized collection of a variety of resources and materials and is managed by qualified personnel who
