Welcome to our program application page. We look forward to getting to know you!

We have rolling admissions and recommend that students apply based on the term in which they’d like to start.

  • For spring, apply by November 1st.
  • For summer, apply by April 1st.

Please note: Admitted students must enroll within the academic year for which they have been admitted.

Transfer Credits: Due to the specialized nature of the Institute’s programs, transfer credits will not be accepted, with the exception of IIRP coursework offered as ORLA 5340 and taught by IIRP faculty at the Summer Principals Academy, Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, New York, which will be accepted until the conclusion of academic year 2023-2024.
