The Bureau of Proprietary School Supervision (BPSS) was informed on February 23, 2018 that ILSC USA Language School NYC will be closing. The last date of classroom training is scheduled for March 23, 2018.
BPSS received this advanced notice from the school, as required under the New York State’s Education Law. Since then we have worked with school administrators and they have worked with us on various student options, as required under the Law. The objective is to make any transition in your educational pursuits as smooth as possible, during the admittedly challenging period.
Students, who are scheduled to graduate before or on March 23rd, will continue their education at ILSC. The school will remain a certified ESL school with BPSS until it closes.
All other ILSC students are provided with the following options:
Option one: Teach-out School: Students who will not be able to complete their training by March 23, 2018, may choose to transfer into EC’s New York school to complete their training program. Your existing tuition and all other terms and conditions of your enrollment and training would be honored at no additional financial cost to you. EC School is a certified ESL school with the New York State Education Department. (Note: Students who opt for the teach-out at EC will have up until one week, not longer, to assess how it works for you. If you are not happy with your educational opportunities after a week, ILSC will refund the unused portion of your tuition.)
Option two: ILSC has offered students the option to transfer to its Canadian locations in Vancouver, Toronto or Montreal with a similar student schedule at no additional cost. ILSC has represented they will provide up $200 in airfare support per student. (Please note that by choosing this option, BPSS has no jurisdiction over any school located outside NY State. Therefore, students who choose this option do so based solely on the representations made by ILSC and are not covered under the terms of the Teach-out agreement.
Option three: If you decide to transfer to another school on your own, ILSC will offer a full refund of any unused tuition paid. However, it is recommended that you notify ILSC prior to the school’s closing date that you are requesting a refund.
Please let your school director know if you will accept the transfer or opt for the refund. We are sorry that your school is closing, if you have any further questions you may contact BPSS at 212-643-4760 or visit our website for more information.
