1. Admission Processing Time:

When you submit your application, it enters a review stage where our Admissions Department takes action. Expect a brief wait – this can take 2-3 working days. Once we give your application the green light, we’ll send you (if applicable) the login credentials to our Online Student Portal.

2. Refund Policy:

a. Eligible Applicants:

A quick heads-up: we don’t offer refunds for payments made over 24 hours ago. Decided to cancel? Let us know right away, ideally within that 24-hour window post-payment.

b. Ineligible Applicants:

Verify your eligibility before diving in. Our team diligently checks your submitted documents, and this could take up to 3 working days. If it turns out you’re not eligible, we will refund your fee, minus any deductions by banks or the payment processors.

3. Accreditation:

Here at the Academy for International Modern Studies (AIMS), we hold the torch high for professional development and proudly issue certificates. Alas, we don’t confer degrees directly. Instead, we join forces with illustrious global partners for Master’s and Doctorate Degrees. Dive into our accreditation narrative to explore more about AIMS and our prestigious international cohorts.

4. Deciphering Fees for Certification and Degrees:

a. For Certificates and Master Diplomas:

The tab you pick up covers the soft copy of your certificate. Fancy a hard copy? That’ll be extra for the print and the postal service.

b. For Master’s and Doctorate Programs:

These degrees are conferred by our global partners. Upon your triumphant finish, an additional fee is required for the Degree Package. Should you wish to add Apostille or Embassy Legalization to dot the I’s and cross the T’s on your degree, we’ll discuss the extra charges then.

Quick note: Here at AIMS, we’re authorized to award Professional Certificates and Master Diplomas. But regarding MBA and Ph.D. degrees, the credit goes to our allies including the European International University (EIU) and the University of America (UA). AIMS plays the role of a mentor for these degree programs, facilitating communication with our partners issuing your degree. We do not, however, cast promises or make claims on behalf of our partners.

5. Extension and Re-Examination Fee:

If a student can’t complete the program within the registration validity period, the Extension Fee is payable as per policy. If a student couldn’t pass the examination, a re-examination fee is also payable for each attempt.
