Teacher applications and course proposals are accepted at any time. No need to wait for the deadline! Once we receive your materials, we will be in touch to set up an interview.
Please note, final decisions about what classes we will run are made AFTER the proposal deadline. We like to see all the proposals from new and returning instructors before committing to the semester catalog.
