The Natural Healing Institute is a diploma/certificate of completion-granting adult vocational college and institution.


Licenses are issued by cities; Diplomas and Certificates for all of our Programs are issued by NHI. Graduation from any of our Programs does not qualify you as a licensed medical doctor. You cannot diagnose, prescribe, treat symptoms, defect, injury, or disease pursuant to California Business and Professional Code 2052. You can do health counseling or therapies as a health practitioner or therapist. Our use of the word “clinical” refers to working in a clinical environment and does not imply being a licensed doctor or practicing medicine. Please call us if you have questions.


Applicants to NHI are considered on the basis of individual merit without regard to handicap, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, race, or national or ethnic origin. This policy applies to admissions, employment, financial agreements, and all other matters with in the school.


NHI welcomes transfer students. Any student currently enrolled elsewhere may join us and receive a tuition rebate from your former school following State guidelines. This is a State regulation. We will accept transfer credits from any state-licensed school or college at $1.00 per credit hour as long as the training is comparable. This fee must be paid within 60 days of enrolling at NHI.

NHI cannot grant credit for workshops, life experiences and other excellent endeavors unless conducted through a state or federally licensed college or school. For more information on transfers please contact NHI Admissions.


The NHI staff recognize that financing a quality education is a major investment. Easy payment plans have been designed for your added convenience. Checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted. Some types of financial aid may be available as well. NHI encourages graduates to commence their new careers debt-free. We also offer individualized career counseling. We do not accept Title 4 Money (i.e., FAFSA). We do not accept funding from WIA (the Workforce Investment Act through the Employment Development Department) for people currently out of work, with low income, or those seeking a career change – which became defunct in 2014. We also accept corporate, private and other grant money.


You must be at least 18 years of age to graduate a program and have either a high school education or GED equivalent.


An application is available on our website which can be signed and sent to our Admissions Department directly.

First time NHI students in any of our full programs pay a one time, non-refundable $100 registration fee.


You may pay in full or enroll in our payment plan. If you select the payment plan, you can pay 20% of the total tuition as a down payment, and make monthly payments during the term of your enrollment. Talk to our Admissions Department for more information.


NHI does not provide English as a second language in any of its instructions.
