 Registrar

We are here to help you from the beginning through the end of your educational journey--from your admission application to your final degree check. We can assist you with interpreting university policies and degree requirements, fulfill your transcript requests or verify your current enrollment for insurance purposes.  Have a question about in-state residency requirements?  Need a course description sent to another college? Our goal is to maintain the quality, accuracy, safekeeping and confidentiality of the academic records of all current and former students.

 

 Residential Life

Our residential community consists of approximately all the boarding students. We believe that our relatively small size contributes to our greatest strength as a residential community: a sense of home. With 71 boarding students, it is very possible for each faculty member to know each of our residential students.

 

As members of a common community we share everything; we live together, work together, rest together, eat together, laugh together, learn together. The faculty at SIAS serves our students not only in the classroom as teachers, but on the playing fields as coaches, in the theatre as directors, and in the residences as hall parents and mentors.

 

Boarding students and teachers know each other well at SIAS. That relationship means that students know to whom to turn about an academic challenge or a personal dilemma. Teachers are able to respond with care and knowledge to the concerns and needs of their students.

Testing Service

HSK

China's Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, known as HSK or the Chinese Proficiency Test is a standardized test at the state level designed and developed by the HSK Center of Beijing Language and Culture University to assess the Chinese proficiency of non-native speakers (foreigners, overseas Chinese and students of Chinese national minorities). HSK consists of the basic Chinese proficiency test (HSK Basic), the elementary and intermediate Chinese proficiency test (HSK Elementary-Intermediate) and the advanced Chinese proficiency test (HSK Advanced). HSK is held regularly in China and other countries each year. Certificates of HSK will be issued to those who have secured the required scores.

 

The Chinese Ministry of Education has established China National Committee for Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK)(CNCCPT). The Committee is the supervisor of HSK and the issuer of the Chinese proficiency certificates.

The HSK (Advanced) is designed to measure the Chinese proficiency of those who are proficient in Chinese, i.e. who have taken 3000 regular hours or more modern Chinese learning (including those whose proficiency in Chinese is similar to that standard).
