Admissions Timeline

Our admissions timeline for the 2018-2019 cohort is as follows:

  • January 5th, 2018 - Priority application deadline*
  • Late January 2018 - Initial Admissions Committee review
  • February & March 2018 - Skype Interviews for selected candidates
  • April 2018 - All candidates receive notification of admissions decision

*Priority Deadline Note: We will continue to accept applications on a space available basis throughout the spring until our administration and coaching cohorts have been filled.

If you are interested in submitting an application after the priority deadline, please contact Jess Serio regarding space availability.


To begin the application process, go to the UW Graduate School Online Application. You will submit all items from the application checklist electronically as part of the graduate school application. Graduate school application instructions are as follows:

  1. When submitting the online graduate school application form, you will be asked to create an account.
  2. Once you have created an account, you will be asked to select the graduate program to which you are applying. Please note that there are separate applications for the IAL-Administration & IAL-Coaching programs. Please select the appropriate program and only apply to one track.  
  3. After completing the essential components of the graduate school application, be sure to pay your application fee ($85) and to print a copy of your graduate school application for your records.


We admit 25-30 students each year to the IAL-Administration option and 12-20 coaches to the Coaching track. We typically receive around 100 applications.
