Students can apply for our Doctor of Acupuncture program year-round, but new students only begin during the fall term. To qualify for the program, students must complete several prerequisites prior to the first day of classes:

  • Bachelor’s degree in any subject.
  • 3 credits of Anatomy & Physiology I.
  • 3 credits of Anatomy & Physiology II.

Please note you do not have to have these prerequisites complete to apply. Our institute offers Anatomy and Physiology courses every summer through 100% online classes.  View our full requirements on our Admissions Requirements page.

Furthermore, applicants should review our technical standards to ensure they will be a good fit for the program.

In addition to the prerequisites, students must also complete three credits each in Chemistry, Biology, and Psychology. The courses can be completed concurrently with the Doctor of Acupuncture Program. Students can take our online Biochemistry of Plants class to satisfy their biology or chemistry requirements.
