Certificates and Transcripts

Dear Students,

I sent the following letter to a student today and wanted to share it with everyone else as well. This letter has now been posted to the FAQs section and student BLOG so you can easily find it in the future:

Dear (Student),

Once you complete a course you need to fill out the "Certificate Request Form" on the website at:

Because of the expense and time involved in sending the certificates they are sent in batches of three at a time. When you complete three courses I send you those three certificates. If you need one before that time you can opt to pay a rush fee of $15.00 for one certificate via Paypal to:

Transcripts are available any time for an additional $15.00 and $7.50 per additional transcript after the first request.

The following additional information can be found at the link above:

Because of the reduced "package" price for full time students, certificates for students of the Naturopathic Healing Course or Medicine of Avicenna course are sent after a student completes three courses. Certificates for students of individual courses are sent upon completion of the course and after the student has submitted the request form below. If you are a full student of the Naturopathic Healing Course or The Medicine of Avicenna you can request a certificate early by paying a "rush fee" below for each certificate requested. Upon receipt of the fee your certificate is sent by 2-day mail within a week.

Blessings & Health,

Quick Start Guide& New 2010 Tech Support for Students

You may need some time to adapt to the website or explore the many materials we have on the website. However, I don't want you to have to wait to use the program. Here are some quick start tips you can use to get started right away:

1. Go to your Homeroom and your Study Group. If you can't get to these right away please e-mail me and I will e-mail you your files while we work on some tech support.

2. Download (or receive by e-mail) your main course material E-book.

3. Print out this E-book or send it to Kinkos or Officemax to get printed. If you have it professionally printed it usually costs between $15.00 and $30.00 and includes binding (depending on the course). You can upload online and then have them send it to you or pick it up at the store.

As you start using the materials you will start to have questions and may then want to explore some of the videos, reference files, guides, student extras, FAQs and other resources that are available on the student website. If you have the time, I recommend that you at least skim those materials before you start. However, if you are looking for a quick way to start all you need to do is follow the five steps above.

If you have any trouble please fill out the tech support form at:

This e-mail has now been added to the FAQs section of the website and the student BLOG so you can easily find it again in the future.
