What Should You Do Before You Apply?

Thank you for your interest in Rockwell!

Before submitting an application, be sure to read through the frequently asked questions on this page, as well as the individual FAQ for the program you are applying to.

This is especially true of students who wish to study our traditional naturopathy program. We have extensive articles that should be read thoroughly to gain a firm grasp on this complex field of interest.

Doing so also helps avoid delays during the application process and ensures everyone is on the same page in regard to our program offerings and other important factors, like U.S. state laws regarding the practice of naturopathy and use of professional designation, etc.

If you are confused or unsure about anything in regard to our programs, please ask your most important questions before you apply and/or formally enroll.

Thank you kindly!

Eligibility Requirements

As a gentle reminder, we are not a conventional college.

Since we title our programs as doctorates, it is only natural for some people to assume that we would require a bachelors and a masters degree as prerequisites.

This would be accurate if we were a conventional college, but we are an alternative educator.

As a private school, we offer independent majors and set our own standards and requirements for entry. The truth is, all it takes is a willing heart and an open mind.

Of course, you will want to have a good amount of self-motivation and determination, as well as a natural affinity for holistic medicine. In theory, anyone can study, learn, and apply the principles we teach.

That's why we don't require X amount of math or science hours, or a certain type of degree for admission. Herbal medicine is the people's medicine, and herbal education is for everyone who seeks it!

Accreditation in Depth

Our Doctorates

We use the term 'doctorate' because our programs provide a deep understanding of our core subject matter.

Tuition & Scholarships

For your convenience, we offer 5 different tuition payment plans to fit any budget and 6 different income-based scholarships to those who qualify! 

Learning Materials

Students learn from a complete repertoire of informational materials, including our beautiful handpicked textbooks, which they will use as desk references throughout their entire career. Additional learning materials range from periodic journals, video lectures, anecdotal theory from personal experience across the globe, and evidence-based studies in natural medicine.


Students are responsible for their own textbooks. Required textbook checklists can be found under the FAQ section of each respective program. Students may purchase books on an as needed basis.


Each of our 5 holistic medicine programs comprise 8 unique, interchangeable learning modules which vary depending on your focus of study. For more information on our programs, please see our Module section in the navigation menu above. 


Our testing consists of multiple-choice and short essays, or both, depending on the specific module and section.

Continuing Education 

Students have lifetime access and continuing education at no additional cost through our semi-annual updates  which ensures your knowledge stays current.

Estimated Program Completion Times

Everyone wants to know how long it will take them to complete their chosen program. With the Semi-Annual Updates for 2019, we have begun adding completion time for each module.

We currently have Module 1 clocked at 50 hours. Remaining completion times are forthcoming and expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

Until then, here's what we have discovered. Everyone is different. It depends on how much time and energy you have to focus on your chosen program and how quickly you are able to get through it.

Students may go through their program(s) at their own pace —as there are no deadlines at Rockwell and you have lifetime access with continuing education.

Students enrolled in the Rockwell Tri-Doctorate have the option to complete one program at a time and begin practice in that area.

For example, some students graduate the TND program and begin practice while finishing their remaining programs on the backend. 

How Can You Tell if Rockwell is Right for You?

Are you ready to develop the skills you need to become an expert in your field?

Our programs help prepare the most in-demand, highly qualified holistic medicine practitioners of our class and type in the world!

Students want a school they can be proud of and a name they can trust. That name is Rockwell.

How can you tell if Rockwell is right for you?

Do you absolutely love the quality of our programs?

Do you appreciate an immediate response to any concerns? Do you want your voice to be heard and your opinion to matter? Does Rockwell resonate with your ideas of what a holistic medicine school should be?

These are the biggest deciding factors for students who choose Rockwell.

Admissions Note

We love and welcome vegans, who are always more than welcome to study our Advanced Holistic Nutrition Program or our Rockwell Tri-Doctorate, which are the two programs that contain the Advanced Holistic Nutrition Doctorate core curriculum Module V.

We have an entire section that makes a compelling case for veganism, and we have an entire section that presents a case against it.

Please be aware that while you will learn about veganism, raw foods, and vegetarianism, you will also be required to learn about AIP (autoimmune paleo), keto, and Weston A. Price, as Rockwell graduates must have full working knowledge of all traditional and therapeutic diets.

We apologize in advance for any conflict of interest. Please consider this when applying.


In Module VIII, students learn about bedside manner and holistic business practices, which helps prepare them to better serve their communities. 

Graduates receive custom designed certificates of completion with any program they finish.

Certificates of completion include a unique Rockwell identification number for public verification which helps ensure responsible practice above all else.

Certificates of Completion

Students can choose from any of the following certificates of completion. Student will be provided with a digital copy they can print in any size they choose, from 8x11 to 10x14, etc in order to fit their frame of preference.

This includes the use of needles, unless the graduate is also a licensed medical professional, and only then if done in an appropriate setting.

*We reserve the right to revoke a Rockwell Registration ID# and alert the public via any inquiries if a graduate is found to be practicing outside of our ethics and standards, per the above guidelines.

Board Certification

Most people are surprised to discover that board certification is always optional for both licensed medical professionals and holistic medicine practitioners.

While some people feel absolutely no pressure to have board certification and feel it is too mainstream, others may feel that it gives them an extra boost in confidence and affects how they are perceived professionally in the public eye.

Those individuals can seek board certification through any or all of the following organizations which include the American Naturopathic Certification Board (our first choice), the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board, and the American Association for Drugless Practitioners.

Please note that even though we do not seek "professional accreditation" from the ANCMB or the AADP, they still accept our students for their version of "board certification".
