We encourage students to start their program on a main start date. If students choose to start on an alternate start date, they can expect to
have a level test on the first week of class. Students that want to start Pathway classes from their first week should start on a main start date.


ORIENTATION AND HOLIDAY POLICY: Orientation for new students is held on each Sunday prior to the Monday start date.
When a holiday falls on Monday, ILAC will be closed for regular classes and the orientation will take place on Monday instead of Sunday.
