Behavior that is disruptive, unethical, illegal, threatening, or destructive will not be tolerated. All students must understand and abide by our written Standards of Conduct policy. Students will acknowledge and sign the Standards as part of their enrollment agreement and then re-sign and re-acknowledge the conduct policy guidance on the first day of class. Students who fail to follow these Standards of Conduct will be dismissed from our training program and their application for a security clearance will be withdrawn.
The examples below (while not all-inclusive), violate our Standards of Conduct:
Students are expected to attend class in business casual attire (we will provide guidelines) as part of the professional development portion of our course. You need to get accustomed to analyzing, writing, briefing, and responding to questions in the same attire you would be expected to wear every day as an intelligence professional.
Our School Director has the authority to dismiss any student, based on documentation and recommendation of the Training Director, who violates our published policies. We will maintain a permanent record of the expulsion in the student’s file.
We do not discriminate against any student or applicant because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factor. This policy shall include, but not be limited to, the following: admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, or other programs.

The IACT program is approved for all Chapters of Veterans Administration Educational Benefits. Qualified veterans and their family members may be eligible to use educational benefits to offset the cost of IACT training. VA Educational Benefits may vary. Students using VA benefits are required to submit a copy of all prior study that is related to the IACT program before beginning classes. The School Director will evaluate the official transcripts and documentation of this previous education—that is current within the last three years—and determine if any credit will be given to the student for previous work completed; however, we typically do not award transfer hours. Of note, students cannot receive VA pay during the optional 4-week experiential learning exercise. Always consult with your VA counselor. More information regarding VA Educational Benefits is available at www.gibill.va.gov.
Students must remain in good standing with our training program (as described in our Standards of Conduct and Grounds for Dismissal section on our website and in our course catalog), successfully complete the course’s instruction with a passing grade (as explained in our Grading System and Policies section on our website and in our course catalog), and be present for at least 90% of the entire program (as explained in our Attendance Policy section on our website and in our course catalog) in order to receive his/her Certificate in Intelligence Analysis. If a student does not meet the program requirements, he/she will receive a warning, then be placed on probation, and finally withdrawn from the program and issued individual certificates for each of the blocks he/she successfully completed (as described in our Warning & Probation Periods, plus Dismissal section on our website and in our course catalog). Students wishing to attend the optional 4-week experiential learning exercise must meet our graduation requirements and be recommended by the WSARC training staff.
