The Intake Process:
Once we have received your CAL Registration Request, we will follow up with an email to schedule an over the phone interview.
This begins the Intake Process, which will be followed by a virtual interview, to further discuss your educational background as well as career goals.

The Career Access Lab is a 15-Week Program, that follows a Winter and Spring academic calendar. Career Groups are scheduled to begin in January and March of each year. 

Important information to note:

  • After you have completed the CAL interest form, you will be contacted to begin the intake process for the next cohort.
  • Once accepted into the program, you can expect to be enrolled in a cohort scheduled to begin in 2024.
  • If the January 2024 class schedule does not align with your personal schedule, or perhaps you’ve missed the deadline, you may be enrolled in the Spring 2024 program.
