All students must register at least one week prior to the first day of class. ICAOM does allow students (excluding first year foreign students) to pay the tuition and material fees in monthly equal payments through-out the semester. Arrangements must be made with the Chief Financial Officer at the beginning of the semester.

Non-payment Policy In the event of non-payment, after thirty (30) days the student will be dismissed from the program, unless other arrangements have been made with the Chief Financial Officer of the Institute.

A student who withdraws from the program at ICAOM, or is dismissed from the program with a balance due, is responsible for all fees which would not have been refunded to them had their account been paid in full. In these cases, ICAOM reserves the right to seek payment, by legal action, of any and all outstanding account balances due, minus the portion that is refundable. In order to develop and maintain a quality educational program, as well as remain cost- competitive with other Oriental Medicine programs, ICAOM reserves the right to increase the tuition and fees at any time.

Tuition must be paid in full for each semester at the time of registration.
