2017-2018 CIU Student Handbook
All students are issued an account within CIU’s online community (my.ciu.edu
Due to the important nature of much of the information sent by CIU offices to
students via the student’s @mailbox.ciu.edu
e-mail account, students are expected
to check their account regularly. Students are responsible for information posted
or sent to their CIU e-mail accounts. Technical assistance (opening
an account, logging in, forwarding e-mails to a preferred e-mail address, etc.) is
available online or at 807-5199.
Please check firstname.lastname@example.org
account often. You can forward it to a
preferred email account.
All single undergraduate students under 23 are required to live on campus.
Undergraduate students living with family within commuting distance (50 miles)
must live on campus their first two semesters at CIU. Students may move off
campus if they will turn 23 during a semester. Those under 23 who are found to
have moved off campus without permission will be charged one half of the Room
and Board charge and will not be able to register for classes the next semester
without discussing housing arrangements with the Residence Life Office. For
additional information regarding housing requirements and appeals in exceptional
circumstances, contact the Residence Life Office (807-5485 or ext. 5485).
Rollerblading, Skateboarding, Scooters
Those rollerblading, skateboarding, or riding scooters on campus should be
careful and courteous at all times. These are prohibited on the boulevard and the
road behind the student center. No stunt skating, stair jumping, or skating inside
buildings is allowed at any time.
Selling & Charitable Collections
No one is to act as an agent or salesperson on campus for products or services.
This includes advertising on bulletin boards (except on the Student Life bulletin
board) and taking orders from those who request a product, as well as stuffing
We appreciate the concern that often motivates a desire to solicit help for needy
students and worthy causes. It is necessary, however, to avoid any type of solicitation
that puts pressure on a fellow student, including individual fundraising for mission
trips. School policy does not permit person-to-person appeals or announcements for
this purpose. School sponsored mission trips (through SMC or CICS) are an exception
to this policy. Questions should be directed to the Student Life Office.
CIU requires all students to carry adequate health insurance. Students who do
not have coverage through their family or employer should purchase health care
coverage for the duration of their studies at CIU. Information about purchasing
health insurance can be found online atmy.ciu.edu
. All students must submit
proof of insurance to CIU’s Health Services Office. In general, comparable health
insurance should include:
coverage for sickness or injury resulting in the need for inpatient or
outpatient hospital care, surgery, diagnostic x-ray or laboratory testing,
emergency care, outpatient psychiatric care, doctor’s office visits and
