Corequisite courses are different from prerequisite courses in that they do not have to be completed before enrollment.
Students who have already completed their admissions requirements may decide to complete at least some corequisite courses before enrolling in order to focus more intensely on their studies at the Academy. We recommend this approach, in particular for the Anatomy & Physiology II corequisite. Students may also complete the corequisite courses while enrolled in the Master of Acupuncture and/or Chinese Herbal Studies programs. The flexible intensive-based structure of our programs allows students to complete the required courses when at home, often at their own pace, in between intensive sessions.
In either case, courses must also be completed at an accredited community college, university, or online institution. The Academy can provide a range of recommendations for quality corequisite courses that meet the Academy’s requirements.
Corequisite courses are not part of the regularly scheduled intensive-based curriculum. However, the Academy does periodically offer certain corequisite courses. Please inquire with Admissions for more information.
