Admissions & Aid - San Diego Campus
Bastyr University's academic and research programs have received international recognition for pioneering work in science-based natural medicine. The California campus will offer a learning environment that fosters serious inquiry, professional dedication and lifelong relationships. The campus opened in fall 2012 for the inaugural class in the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program.
How to Apply
We are now accepting applications to the Bastyr University naturopathic medicine program for fall 2013. Applicants may indicate a preference for the Kenmore campus, the San Diego campus or both.
To contact admissions regarding entrance requirements, please email sandiego[at]bastyr[dot]edu.
The application timeline for the naturopathic medicine program will be the same for both campuses. Read more about our admission timeline.
To schedule a tour, call (858) 246-9700. You can learn about the building and surrounding area here.
The prerequisite requirements and enrollment process will be the same at both campuses. If there is anything unique that prospective California students need to do, they will be advised through the Office of Admissions and through University newsletters. At this time, they can proceed as normal, and we will keep them posted at regular intervals.
Tuition, fees, books and supplies will cost the same at the San Diego and Kenmore campuses. See our graduate tuition page for more information.
Scholarships and loans will be available in the same way for both campuses (on a limited basis as funds are available). See our financial aid page for more information.
Transfer students may apply to study at the Kenmore, Washington, campus only. See more information on transfer students.
The San Diego campus will offer only first-year classes in the inaugural year, so more advanced Kenmore students will not be able to take classes there.
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.
See our San Diego campus blog for recent news and updates about the campus, which opened in fall 2012.
The San Diego campus will be located at 4106 Sorrento Valley Boulevard in the center of the city's life sciences cluster and approximately 14 miles north of downtown.
It lies within walking distance of the San Diego Coaster commuter train (which connects to more light-rail lines), and is within a short drive of the University of California-San Diego, Scripps Mercy Hospital and the VA San Diego Medical Center.
