Admission

Hawthorn University welcomes students who have graduated from high school or have earned a GED to be considered for enrollment to the Holistic Health Certificate program. Written permission from a legal guardian is required for admission of a person under legal age. Basic computer proficiency, access to the Internet, and E-mail are required.

Students who wish to take just an individual Holistic Health course as a non-matriculated student, must fill out a “Continuing Education” application available in the Continuing Education section and indicate their desired course. As a non-matriculating student there is NO application fee. Students must supply a photo ID.

Complete and return the online application. A non-refundable application fee of $60 will be charged to all matriculated students. Your application will be reviewed and qualified applicants will be contacted.

Hawthorn University does not provide English as a second language instruction and all classes are taught in English. Hawthorn University requires prospective international students to have an academic background equivalent to an education in the United States, to fulfill admission requirements and to speak and write fluent English.
