Part Time Students

A part time student may wish to complete the program over the course of one year. You must take the Anatomy and Physiology course before Massage Theory and Practice. You will then attend school twice a week, either in the morning or the evening, and the hours remain the same as above.

Course Waiver Procedure

During the admissions process it may be determined whether a student may test out of the Anatomy and Physiology portion of the program. Eligible students must have 300 hours of Anatomy & Physiology in order to qualify. The student must also obtain a test score of 80% to waive this course. Tuition will be adjusted accordingly if a student tests out of this portion of the course.
