Admissions & Financial Aid

SCNM attracts talented and passionate individuals like you who want to practice naturopathic medicine.

While our students’ origins are diverse - from small towns and big cities to foreign lands – our students all share a passion for healing and a vision of making a difference.

While GPAs, recommendation letters, and CVs play an important role in the admissions process, so do you. At SCNM, we look for students who think critically, are team oriented, crave patient interaction, and are inspired by the medicine. We ask if your desire to heal exceeds the rigors of medical school. We ask if you want to be a part of a global community. We ask if you are willing to set an example for your patients. Most importantly, have you determined your purpose?

Are You a Future ND?

Our admissions team is looking for students who are ready to be the next generation of NDs. Students who want to learn and educate. Students who want to be a part of the big picture of health care. Students who will advance the profession and the medicine. If you think that is what you want to do with your life, then apply today and start your journey to becoming a naturopathic physician.
