  1. School accepts Pathway Certificate (NO IELTS or TOEFL requirement) AND issues Conditional Acceptance Letters for ILAC students.
  2. School issues Conditional Acceptance letters before students have the required TOEFL or IELTS. This gives ILAC students the advantage of knowing they have a space reserved in their chosen program.
