LEGALITIES OF PRACTICE

 

Student’s are responsible for determining the legal issues involved in conducting a holistic health practice in their state or locality.  We recommend you contact your state or local government for legal interpretations as the laws differ from place to place.  In addition, we encourage you to conduct Internet research, and visit your public library for additional information as it is important for you to know what your legal boundaries are as a practitioner.

Here are just a few of the benefits: 

 

ACCREDITATION:  HAI is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Accreditation for Holistic Health programs in the United States is an entirely voluntary process. Accreditation for an institution of learning represents a validation that the school programs have been thoroughly investigated and found worthy of recognition by a qualified body. 

 

BOARD CERTIFICATION:  Graduates of HAI programs consisting of five or more courses qualify for Board Certification as Holistic Health Practitioners through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). The application will be mailed to you upon graduation from any of our qualifying programs. You may contact the AADP at 1-888-764-AADP.  

 

AFFORDABILITY:  It is HAI’s mission to provide comprehensive, yet affordable, distance learning holistic health courses and programs for adult learners with a true desire to discover and explore the dimension of wholeness—body, mind, and spirit—within themselves.

CONVENIENCE:  Course materials are accessible twenty-four hours a day, and seven days a week, so you can study and learn whenever and wherever you choose. You can read and review lessens, discussions, articles, and additional commentary at anytime and as often as you would like to. You also have the convenience of studying in the comfort of your own home, or taking your HAI studies with you while traveling, working, or visiting your favorite internet café. 

 

FLEXIBILITY:  Because HAI’s typical student is an adult learner with family and professional responsibilities, our flexible learning format works within your own schedule. 

 

AVAILABILITY:  Students can talk to their instructors through email without waiting for specific office hours. At HAI, you are very important to us and we strive to develop a personal relationship with every student.  

 

QUALITY:  You can find a diverse selection of quality courses at HAI that may not be available to you where you live because there are no geographic barriers to distance learning. These learning opportunities enable you to have access to a broad spectrum of content that may not be available through other sources. 

 

COMPUTER LITERACY:  Using the internet to attend class, research information, and communicate with instructors at HAI promotes computer literacy. Computer skills are essential to being in harmony with a global community in the twenty-first century.  

 

Affordability, convenience, and flexibility are all compelling and contribute to the attractiveness of the learning opportunities at HAI. Knowledge of the world around us and the world within are both paths to personal evolution, and so allow yourself the freedom to continue learning with Holistic Arts Institute.

ADMISSIONS AND ENROLLMENT

 

ADMISSIONS POLICY:  At HAI, we believe that students who can exhibit the desire, self-discipline, and motivation to learn through independent study are surely deserving of the learning opportunity.  Whether you are eighteen or eighty-eight, high school graduate or doctorate, homemaker or physician, our doors are open. 

 

SELF-PACED LEARNING:  Because HAI’s typical student is an adult learner with family and professional responsibilities, our flexible learning format works within your own schedule.  You may enroll at any time and progress at your own pace as the rest of your life plan allows.  Although, learning at HAI is self-paced, we do ask that all courses and programs be completed within two years of the initial enrollment date. 

 

Most of our courses require about sixty hours of study time.  Some students are able to complete a course in as little as two weeks, while others may take a month or more.  Our programs then, each consisting of three to twelve courses, can easily be completed within one to two years or even less with a regular study routine. 

 

GRADING:  We make every effort to grade exams as quickly as possible.  Our current turn around time is three to four weeks.  A passing score is 80%; anyone who scores lower than this is offered an opportunity to repeat those sections that do not meet this standard.  When all of your academic and financial requirements have been met, you will receive an official course transcript along with your personalized course certificate.  Additionally, when all of the courses required for your program are completed, you will then receive an official program transcript along with your personalized program certificate or diploma. 

 

TRANSFER OF CREDITS:  With the exception of the HHP Program, you may receive credit for up to two courses per program for course work previously completed with another institution.  We are happy to review transcripts of previous course work prior to enrollment so you will know the actual course requirements for your program of choice.  Please send transcript review requests to admissions@holisticartsinstitute.com so that our Director may determine the transferability of courses previously completed. 

 

COURSE FORMAT:  The structure of each HAI course provides a pathway for learning and facilitates the comprehensive study of a topic.  Our courses are all taught through a distance learning format.  Courses consist of one or more textbooks, audiobooks, CDs, or DVDs, plus an HAI developed workbook.  Presented in a number of modules, the course workbook leads you step-by-step through reading and writing assignments, progress tests, and a final exam.  Most courses require projects that are designed to bring a practical dimension to your studies. 

 

BOOKS AND MATERIALS:  As HAI works hard to make quality holistic education affordable to all, our low tuition includes all of your study materials for each course and program.  Course materials range from traditional textbooks to inspiring subject matter.  In some courses you will also find audio or video components.  HAI students may be assured that all resources are hand picked to expand their holistic horizons. 

 

NONDISCRIMINATION:  HAI does not discriminate on the basis of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, national origin, religion, or disability. 

 

FINANCIAL AID:  While HAI does not offer grants or scholarships, we do seek to assist students through interest free financing options.  MORE INFORMATION!

 

STUDENT WITHDRAWAL POLICY:  If you withdraw from an HAI course or program 1-30 days after enrollment, provided all course materials are returned in their original condition, HAI will grant you a full refund of all tuition paid less shipping costs.  If you withdraw 31-60 days after enrollment, HAI will grant you a 50% refund less shipping costs.  Additional deductions will be made for course materials that are not returned in their original condition.  If you withdraw after 60 days, refunds will not be granted.  Refunds are not available for courses delivered in PDF format, as it is not possible to return them.  For clarity, here is a synopsis of the student withdrawal policy:

 

  • 1-30 days after enrollment:  Full refund (less shipping costs) provided all course materials are returned in their original condition.

 

  • 31-60 days after enrollment:  50% refund (less shipping costs).  Additional deductions will be made for course materials that are not returned in their original condition.

 

  • 61 + days after enrollment:  No refund.

 

LEGALITIES OF PRACTICE:  Students are responsible for determining the legal issues involved in conducting a holistic health practice in their state or locality.  We recommend you contact your state or local government for legal interpretations as the laws differ from place to place.  In addition, we encourage you to conduct Internet research, and visit your public library for additional information as it is important for you to know what your legal boundaries are as a practitioner.
