Intake and registration is continuous.  Each new candidate attends an intake appointment where information about previous academic history, learning styles, challenges, short and long-term goals is obtained.  Incoming skill level is assessed.  Necessary learning accommodations are determined and an action plan developed.  A decision is made concerning at which point in the classroom learning continuum a learner will be initially engaged.  The appropriate teaching and instructional staff will be involved at this stage. Both are re-evaluated as the learner progresses through the program.
