4-Year Curriculum

Schedule of Courses

The program of study is reflected in academic years. For financial aid purposes, an academic year is a sequence of a minimum of three quarters. A calendar year, different than the academic year, is four quarters. The ND program is designed to be completed in four calendar years. The program meets or exceeds the minimum required credit/clock hours of instruction set by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME).
