Academic Year

Following the summer session IAL students have geographic flexibility during the academic school year (late September through mid-June).  IAL-Administration & IAL-Coaching vary slightly in terms of their structure during this time period.

IAL-Administration

Students in the IAL-Admin program take hybrid courses during the academic year while participating in internships.  The hybrid courses allow the cohort to blend distance learning activity with three sessions back in Seattle.  three times during the academic year for three day. These executive-style extended weekend sessions (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) take place in October, December, and April. Additionally, the cohort is flown to the NCAA Convention on a yearly basis for an additional executive session in January.
