Education to Help You Find Your Soul’s Purpose and Live It Successfully as a Career

A Curriculum Founded on Decades of Consciousness Research

Since 1959, we have developed an evolving consciousness-researched, results-tested curriculum to give greater opportunity for success to all who enroll and graduate in whatever specialty they choose.

We Are Tuned in to Your Interests

  • Our students and graduates represent a large variety of metaphysical beliefs. We recognize that there are many paths to Truth, Spiritual Reality, and God. Whatever your path in this lifetime, our curriculum gives you a strong foundation for a greater likelihood for success (see Graduates in Action).
  • We provide a place for everyone’s metaphysical approach to Metaphysics studies, be it primary interests in the Holistic, New Thought, the Transcendent, the Transpersonal, the Mystical, Philosophical, Yoga , Metaphysical Health, Wellness, Spiritual Healing, and other subjects that are associated with the modern-day use of the word Metaphysics.
  • We include Metaphysical Degree programs for almost all metaphysical specialty practices, such as Counseling, Life Coaching, Metaphysical Wellness Practitioner, Metaphysical Teacher, Metaphysical Chaplaincy, Parapsychology, Metaphysical Hypnosis, Metaphysical Psychology, and Metaphysical Ministry. Please note that if enrolling students are involved in Metaphysical specialties not covered in the Doctoral Degrees that we offer, they may apply for consideration for an alternative Doctoral Degree award.

Immediate Financial Assistance: Scholarships

For all in need of financial assistance we offer scholarships, making it easily affordable to study and earn your degree up to a Doctoral specialization. Scholarships enable you to enroll for as little as $90 down and only $25 monthly for 48 months for just $1,290 total tuition, or for as little as $990 for prepayment for an additional $300 savings.

Scholarships cover all student benefits that are part of our regular tuition, which is $4,500. This includes all study texts to complete your Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees. Also included is all that is part of our regular tuition – personal tutoring when needed, interaction with administrative staff, correction of all student exams, guidance as needed, evaluation of submitted Master’s thesis and Doctoral dissertation.

Funding for scholarships comes from alumni who have benefited, and this funding is reviewed for availability every two weeks.
