Applying To Naturopathic and Holistic Medicine School

Naturopathic and holistic medicine usually aren't offered at your regular university or college. These are specialty programs offered at specialty schools, and the requirements for applying to naturopathic and holistic medicine programs depend on the type of education you are pursuing.

Undergraduate university programs in this specialized field are competitive and require that applicants have a certain GPA in their high school courses. Different programs may have different course pre-requisites. Application to naturopathic and holistic medicine programs may require a combination of the following: completed application with non-refundable application fee (between $50-$75), official high school transcript or equivalent, interview, letters of reference and criminal background check. Since many of these programs involve manipulation of the body, it also helps to be physically fit. University and college semesters generally start in August or September for fall term and January for the winter term, and the application process itself usually begins in your senior year of high school. Generally this process involves submitting an online or print application form directly to the university or college by a specific deadline.

Community and career college applications are similar in terms of the documents they may request; however, these schools tend to have much more open admission policies. Applicants must have a high school diploma or pass an entrance exam for basic proficiency in English and math. Rolling admission is used by some schools, which means you can apply any time between the fall and spring and get your result a few weeks later. You therefore don't have to apply to all of your schools at the same time, but be aware: it means earlier applicants get first acceptance. So apply as soon as possible to your rolling admissions schools.

No matter where you are applying, two things that are not required but highly recommended are a campus visit and interview with admissions counselor. Knowledge is power, so be sure to seek out the people and resources that can help you get as much information as possible before you apply to your naturopathic and holistic medicine schools.
