The Next Steps

Admissions Interview
Once all materials have been received and reviewed, an admissions interview will be scheduled. In-person and telephone interviews are available. The admissions committee looks for the qualities desirable for a practitioner of acupuncture and Oriental medicine: a compassionate soul, a healing spirit, an enthusiasm for learning, a mature demeanor and strong communication skills.

Notification of Acceptance
Applicants will be notified in writing of the admissions committee’s decision within 5 days of their interview.

Intent to Enroll
Upon notification of acceptance you will be asked to respond with an Intent to Enroll, a $100 tuition deposit that will be applied to your first quarter tuition. This deposit reserves your space in your quarter of application.

Registration Counseling
After your intent to enroll has been received we will arrange a time for you to meet with an academic advisor to plan you first quarter class schedule. This meeting can happen in person or by telephone. Because of the flexible class schedule at Emperor’s College, your advisor will be able to help you plan a class schedule that bests suits your needs.

You will be notified of the Orientation date at time of acceptance. Orientation typically takes place a couple of days prior to the start of the quarter and is a mandatory meeting to prepare you with the tools you will need to succeed at Emperor’s College. It is also a great time to meet your fellow classmates and have any remaining admission, financial aid or academic questions answered.
