TRANSFER FROM MD, DO, DC PROGRAMS
NCNM may award a limited amount of transfer credit for work done in other doctoral level programs. Only graduate-level courses are transferable. Transfer credit will be accepted only from accredited institutions, or institutions that are specifically or categorically approved by the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization. All requests for transfer credit are considered on a course-by-course basis, and a catalog or course
descriptions will be required. In some cases students may be required to take a challenge examination. All coursework must be documented by official transcript. Admissions interviews are required.
In general, it will take transfer students a minimum of two years attending NCNM to complete either program, even with maximum transfer of credit from another program.
Students who transfer credit from other accredited institutions recognized by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education, the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, or the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization are required to spend at least one year at NCNM to obtain a degree.
