The Cranial Academy Foundation will be providing a limited number of partial tuition ($1200) scholarships for this course.
Applications should be submitted directly to the Foundation — the application will be available at https://osteopathiccaf.org/scholarships/scholarship-application/ after November 1, 2023. It is your responsibility to make sure your scholarship application is complete with the OCAF.
If you apply for a scholarship before registering for this course, you can use the coupon code SCHOLARSHIP on check-out to just pay the $1095 remainder of the registration that the scholarship doesn’t cover. If you are not awarded a scholarship by the OCAF, you will have the option of paying the additional $1200 to take the class, or we will offer you a full refund of the $1095 that you already paid. You must register and pay a minimum of $1095 to hold a spot in the course.
Zoom discussion group attendance is mandatory to pass this course. You must also get a passing grade on the weekly open note quizzes and the final practical exam at the end of your lab session. If you do not pass, your scholarship will be rescinded and you will be required to pay the outstanding balance.
