frequently asked questions

Clinic Will Open on Campus in 2012

We're happy to confirm that the California campus building will include a teaching clinic, Bastyr Natural Health Clinic. It will offer three treatment rooms and Bastyr faculty supervisors. The plan is to start small and expand the clinic in the coming years. The 2012 opening allows students to begin clinical observation in their first year, a feature of the redesigned naturopathic medicine curriculum.

Tutoring Services Planned

We will have two forms of tutoring at the San Diego campus. For many classes, on-site local tutors will be available to help students. For some specialized course topics, we will have tutors from the Kenmore campus available via Skype/webcam.

Tuition, Financial Aid and School Code Same as Kenmore Campus

With accreditation secured and applications flowing in, we can answer more of the California questions we're receiving. Tuition will be the same as for the naturopathic medicine program at the Kenmore campus. Please see our graduate tuition page for more details. Financial aid opportunities will be the same at both campuses, including both federal sources and University scholarships. Please see our Fund Your Graduate Degree page. The Federal School Code required on federal forms is identical for both campuses: 016059.

We Are Now Accepting All Applications for the Naturopathic Medicine Program

Good news for prospective ND students: We are now accepting all applications to the Bastyr University naturopathic medicine program for fall 2012. We are offering the naturopathic medicine program at both our current location in Kenmore, Washington, and at our new location in San Diego, California.

International Students and the San Diego Campus

Will international students be able to study at the San Diego campus?

We do not have federal approval to enroll international students at the San Diego campus in fall 2012. We continue to welcome international students to apply to our Kenmore campus, and we anticipate securing approval to enroll international students in San Diego in fall 2013.
