Students are expected to consistently participate in online instruction for each of the 15 weeks of the academic semester. In addition, students are required to travel to the a designated conference of the Association of Inspectors General once during each academic year while the student is matriculated in the program.

Generally, the Association’s conferences take place during November and May, and the conference’s take place at locations around the United States. During the day immediately before the first day of the conference, and the morning of the first day of the conference, students will attend face to face class meetings with the faculty for the course which they are enrolled in. In these face-to-face classroom sessions, students will also be expected to complete certain assessments where the identity of the student must be assured.
