Lab Workshops: The hybrid aromatherapy program consists of online learning plus two in-person workshops on campus in our laboratory classrooms for hands on learning with our professors. These workshops are scheduled and must take place midway through ARO101 and in the first month of ARO301. See the institution schedule for dates and availability. Non-hybrid students may elect to participate in one workshop while taking ARO101 or ARO301 with permission from the admissions department.
Books and Supplies: In addition to the program tuition, successful completion requires the use of textbooks and supplies. Textbooks for the program can be rented or purchased from academic bookstores with an approximate cost of $150-$350, depending on the program. The cost of course-related supplies, including herbs, essential oils, carrier oils, skin care ingredients, and blending supply costs will vary based on personal preference with a range between $250 and $450 per program.
Due Dates: Tuition is due on the first day of each academic term; invoices are sent out via email approximately 10 days before the start of each term. Students are billed for each academic quarter based upon the courseload for that specific term (i.e. full time students who elect to take a part time quarter pay only for the classes and workshops taken within that quarter).
Late Fee: Tuition is billed 10 days before the start of an academic quarter. A late fee of $30 will be applied to tuition left unpaid 10 days after the start of the quarter.
Past Due Balances: Students with unpaid financial obligations will be placed on a registration and graduation hold and will be unable to register for classes or to qualify for graduation. Transcripts are not released to students with unpaid financial obligations.
