Prerequisites

We require the minimum of a high school diploma or GED to enroll in any program at Trinity. Students are not required to have a college bachelor's or master's degree.

Registration and Fees

Credit cards, personal checks and money orders are accepted for tuition payments and must be in U.S. dollars. The enrollment form must be filled out entirely in order for Trinity School of Natural Health to process the enrollment. The enrollment and access to course materials will be delayed should the application not be filled out completely, or if payment is not submitted with the application. Please contact Trinity School of Natural Health if you have any questions concerning the application.

An installment plan is available. We allow each student to choose the due date for the installment plan. We are able to offer due dates on the tenth (10th) or twentieth (20th) of each month. If a due date is not selected on your enrollment form, we will automatically use the tenth (10th) of the month as the due date. We do allow a grace period of thirty (30) days. If a payment does not arrive within the grace period, a late payment fee of $10 will be applied to your account. If a payment is not made within 31 days, the student will be put on inactive status until the payment(s) are current. Inactive status can include, but is not limited to, access to tests are denied, tests will not be graded, official documents cannot be sent to other organizations, etc. Trinity School of Natural Health reserves the right to limit restrictions in other forms other than what is mentioned here.

Enrollment in multiple programs

A student may decide to enroll in additional programs at any time. When a student decides to enroll in an additional program, a new enrollment form will need to be submitted to Trinity School of Natural Health. We will apply a credit to the new program by waiving courses from the original program of enrollment. The payment plan will be adjusted accordingly once the enrollment form is received.

Course Materials

Courses will be released upon completion of the enrollment form and financial arrangements. Students choosing the installment plan will receive the course work for the first two courses. For those students that are paying their tuition in full, all course work will be released at one time. Any textbooks or DVDs are the responsibility of the student and are generally available in bookstores. Most courses do not require lecture DVDs and some courses do not require textbooks. For more information on the materials, please visit Nutritional Resources.

Accessing exams

Course exams can be accessed through Trinity School of Natural Health's Student Login. Any students that chooses to access their exams online will not incur an additional $10 administration fee for each course. For those students that still want their course exams shipped and are choosing the installment plan option, an extra $30 is due with the minimum down payment at the time of application for the traditional Doctor of Naturopathy Program or an additional $20 for the Master Herbalist, Master Iridology or Advanced Certified Nutritional Consultant Programs. If a student is paying the entire tuition fee up front, the entire administration fee is also due at the time of application. The Instructor-format ND program and Certified Natural Health Professional Program does not offer an option to ship course exams. Any student that chooses to have exams shipped to them can change to online testing. A request in writing is needed to confirm this change. All administration fees are nonrefundable. The student will be responsible for the postage necessary to return each completed course exam.

Transcripts and Diplomas

Students will receive one free diploma for each program completed. Extra diplomas can be ordered upon request. There is a $25 fee charged per additional diploma. Each student will receive one free transcript per program. Transcripts are sent upon request. Extra transcripts can be ordered. There is a $10 fee per additional transcript.

Time Limit for the Programs

There is no set time in which the student must complete any individual course within a program; however, the student must complete the entire program within the time limit given. The student will have three (3) years to complete the Doctor of Naturopathy Program, two (2) years to complete the Master Herbalist or Advanced Certified Nutritional Consultant Programs; or one (1) year to complete the Master Iridologist or Certified Natural Health Professional Programs. Should an additional program be added, the student will be given two (2) months per course to complete that program (not to exceed the original time limit for that program).

Should a student wish to enroll in individual courses and not a program, that student will have a three (3) month time limit per course. Should the course not be completed within that time frame, all policies will apply and the student will not be eligible for a refund on the individual courses as monies paid would be considered fully earned.

Refund Policy

The refund policy is as follows: up to 2 weeks from the enrollment date receives a 100% refund, weeks 3-4 from the enrollment date receives a 50% refund, and greater than 4 weeks from the enrollment date is not eligible for a refund. All administration fees are nonrefundable.

Transfer of Credits

Transfer of credits from another college is not allowed at this time in order to help students develop a thoroughly consistent philosophy traditionally associated with the Trinity School of Natural Health Diploma.

Board Certification Opportunity

Trinity School of Natural Health encourages graduates of the ND program to consider pursuing certification by the American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board (ANMCB). Registered in Washington, D.C., the ANMCB is proud to be the most sought-after national certifying organization for natural health care providers throughout the United States. ANMCB's Board believes, as the majority of practitioners do, that Naturopathy is strictly a non-invasive natural health care therapy, which does not involve prescriptions, surgery, medical procedures or the claims to cure diseases.
