The Admissions Committee reviews each application in full detail. Admissions decisions are based on a composite of information, including the interview, personal essay, letters of recommendations, academic standing in the programs in which you have studied, educational preparation, relevant professional activities, scores, grades and experience with naturopathic medicine. All interviewed candidates will be informed of the decision by phone and/or email, typically within two weeks of the interview.
Seat not offered
If a seat is not offered, the Admissions Committee does not disclose any of the reasons for their decisions. Each application is considered in relation to other applications for the upcoming year. Not every candidate whose credentials meet our stated minimum standards can be admitted.
All applicants who did not meet the admissions requirements, were not offered a seat, were offered a seat and declined, or offered a seat and cancelled must submit an entirely new application with all of the necessary fees. It is also the applicant’s responsibility to check our website for any changes to the admissions process or requirements.
Seat Offered – Registration
If you are offered a seat and wish to reserve it, you must return an enrollment contract signed by the date specified on your offer of acceptance letter, combined with payment of the registration fee and confirmation of tuition enrollment deposit (10% of tuition fee). Outstanding documentation required prior to matriculation will be noted on the back of your offer of acceptance letter. It is your responsibility to complete all outstanding prerequisites and meet all admissions requirements by the stated deadline(s). All students must also submit the criminal record check after registration in school and prior to matriculation into the program.
Please note that due to the high volume of applications, some candidates will receive an official letter indicating that they have been placed on the waitlist. At each round of intakes there may be some accepted candidates who are unable to enroll in the program. When that occurs, a seat becomes available for a candidate on the waitlist. Otherwise, candidates may be deferred to the next intake.
