Effective November 2016
Vouchers may be used in any combination for any Institute course under the terms and conditions described within this policy. Vouchers will be accepted from any employee of the Agency or Institution to which the voucher was awarded. The employee of the Agency or Institution may enroll in courses on a space available basis.
Only official, original, and non-expired vouchers will be accepted. Faxed or copied forms will not be accepted.
Exception: If the voucher was originally emailed to the clinical site and subsequently emailed to a student for use, the student may then email the voucher to the IHP for redemption.
A voucher can only be redeemed once. Tuition vouchers have no cash value and expire two years after the issue date.
Verification of employment by the agency or institution that was issued the voucher must be noted on the voucher itself.
Credit Bearing Courses
Non-Degree students: While in Non-Degree Status, there is no limit to the number of vouchers that may be applied towards tuition costs. Note: Non-degree students who choose to apply for matriculated status should refer to the Non-Degree section of the Institute’s website under “Registration Instructions-Registration Criteria” to review the number of non-degree credits that can be applied to an Institute degree or certificate program.
Matriculated students: When a student matriculates into a new degree/certificate program, a maximum of twelve (12) credits worth of vouchers may be applied toward their tuition. This maximum will also apply to students who change from certificate to degree programs within an Institute program. Use of vouchers may result in an adjustment to student financial aid awards.
If a student drops the course or withdraws from the Institute, the voucher is forfeited and cannot be reused.
Vouchers must be redeemed by the 12th class day of the semester of enrollment. For shortened modules, vouchers must be redeemed by the 5th class day of the module.
Fees are separate from tuition and not covered by vouchers; students are responsible for paying all fees.
Continuing Education Courses
In some instances vouchers may be redeemed for continuing education offerings.
A one-credit voucher may be redeemed for up to 15 contact hours. Additional vouchers will be required for offerings with more than 15 contact hours. Please refer to course enrollment information to determine eligibility.
If a student drops the course, the voucher is forfeited and cannot be reused.
Vouchers must be redeemed by the start date of the course.
