Transferability of Credits and Credentials Earned at Our Institution


The transferability of credits you earn at The Healing Tree Massage School is at the complete discretion of an institution to which you may seek to transfer. Acceptance of the certificate you earn in the educational program is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which you may seek to transfer. If the certificates that you earn at this institution are not accepted at the institution to which you seek to transfer, you may be required to repeat some or all of your coursework at that institution. For this reason you should make certain that your attendance at this institution will meet your educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which you may seek to transfer after attending The Healing Tree Massage School to determine if your certificate will transfer.

Recognition of Credits Transferred from Other Institutions


The Healing Tree Massage School will recognize credit hours where the curriculum is substantially similar in scope and content to that of the program the student wishes to transfer into. This will be at the discretion of the Faculty and Administration and it must be a unanimous decision. Each student’s situation will be evaluated on a person to person basis.

In case of disabling illness or injury, death in the student’s immediate family or other documented mitigating circumstances, a reasonable and fair refund settlement will be made. If permanently closed or no longer offering instruction after a student has enrolled, the school will provide a pro rata refund of tuition to the student OR provide course completion through a pre-arranged teach out agreement with another institution. If the course is cancelled after students have enrolled and instruction has begun, the school shall provide a pro rata refund for all students transferring to another school based on the hours accepted by the receiving school OR provide completion of the course OR participate in a Teach-Out Agreement OR provide a full refund of all monies paid.

All fees are identified in the catalog and in this enrollment agreement.
