List any special skills or trades you have:
Divers Institute of Technology requires applicants to provide one reference. You must also provide one letter of recommendation. This letter can be from your reference, or another party. Please list your reference below.
Diving requires you to be in top physical condition. The effects of cold water, pressure, waves, currents, etc., are a constant strain on the body. A thorough physical examination is necessary prior to being exposed to hyperbaric conditions and beginning your dive training. The exam must be completed using the forms provided by Divers Institute of Technology. Ask your Admissions Representative to provide these if you do not already have them. The physical is not a requirement for application and acceptance, but must be completed at the beginning of training.
For the protection of all parties, it is agreed that no agreements or promises were made to me other than those set forth in this application and the school catalog, which I acknowledge having received. In consideration of the fact that I may be, from time to time, involved in publicity photographs and name releases, and a copy being made to me on request, I consent and agree that the school and its agents and successors in interest may use and reproduce my name and photograph for any and all purposes in any media. I understand that this is not a contract. I further understand that all other application forms, including an enrollment agreement (contract) will be processed after acceptance of this application for admission by the school. Acceptance of this application is at the sole discretion of the school.
I further state that all of the information provided is true to the best of my knowledge.
The Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.
FERPA gives parents rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students who meet these criteria are “eligible students.”
Eligible students have the right to inspect and review their education records. The Divers Institute of Technology (DIT) is not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for the student to review the record. DIT may charge a fee for copies. The Divers Institute of Technology is not required to release an official copy of the student’s transcript if there are outstanding balances on the student’s account or if other holds have been placed on the release of the official transcript.
Eligible students have the right to request that DIT correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the DIT decides not to amend the record, the student has the right to place a statement in their file detailing their view about the contested information.
An eligible student has the right to release information from their education record however there must be written statement in the student’s file releasing this information.
I understand that any and all personally identifiable information concerning my financial aid is protected under FERPA. I further understand that I may waive that protection and give access of my records to individuals of my choice.
I agree to waive my rights under FERPA and allow the below-named individual(s) to receive access to my education records.
I acknowledge that this release is valid until I have completed this program at the Divers Institute of Technology. I understand that I can revoke this release at any time by notifying the Financial Aid Office or Business Office in writing.
Because continuity is essential to a student’s academic progress and future job performance, DIT requires students to maintain 90% or better attendance throughout the 900-hour program. Every absence, including partial day absences due to tardiness or for other reasons, will be recorded as an absence for the actual period of time involved. Students with less than satisfactory attendance are at risk for probation or termination. Unexcused absences in any subject week may result in a failed grade for that week. Missed time will be made up after graduation at a cost of $240.00 per day and a passing grade must be achieved in order to receive certifications, if applicable.
Students missing more than 10% of the scheduled hours, at any point in the program, will be placed on probation for a minimum of 30 days.
The student will be ineligible to receive additional financial aid until the hours in excess of 10% of the scheduled hours are made up. A student can only be placed on probation for attendance two times. If a third violation occurs, he/she will be terminated from enrollment.
It is critical to maintain good attendance during the first four (4) weeks of the program. Any absences during those first four (4) weeks could delay funding and affect grades to a point where students may fail.
By signing below, I acknowledge and understand that I have read the attendance policy. I further acknowledge that I have no known appointments, court dates, etc. that conflict with my class schedule.
Safety is our primary concern at DIT and to that end we strictly prohibit students from using illicit drugs while participating in the program. Furthermore, we prohibit students from being under the influence of alcohol or marijuana (including medical marijuana) while at school or while participating in school-related activities. The purpose of this policy is to clearly communicate these expectations to students as well as to outline our testing policies, which you will be subject to as a student at DIT.
Students are prohibited from consuming, possessing, or being under the influence of alcohol while on campus during school hours, and while participating in school-related activities. Prohibited alcohol use includes:
Students are prohibited from consuming or being under the influence of illicit drugs while enrolled in the program, and from possessing or distributing illicit drugs while on campus, including, but not limited to, marijuana and medical marijuana. Although the state of Washington has legalized the personal use of marijuana, it is still a Schedule I Hallucinogenic substance under the Washington Uniform Controlled Substances Act (RCW § 69.50.204) and illegal under federal law. “Since marijuana is illegal under federal law institutions that receive federal funds will still be subject to mandated testing” (WA State Liquor and Control Board: http://www.liq.wa.gov/mj2015/faqs_i-502).
Students are to report to their instructor ANY current prescription or over-the-counter medications that may impair his/her ability to participate safely in any classroom activity, including but not limited to diving activity, prior to participating in such activity.
All students are subject to drug and alcohol testing while enrolled at DIT. Any student testing positive as defined by this policy will be suspended with a recommendation for termination from the program. Any refusal to test will be considered a violation of policy and will also be grounds for suspension with a recommendation for termination from the program. Any alteration of a test will also be considered a violation of policy and will be grounds for suspension with a recommendation for termination from the program.
By signing this policy, I acknowledge and understand the expectations of DIT and the consequences of a failed test. I further consent to testing as required under this policy.
