Please note that the college's distance learning program does not qualify for veterans educational benefits, nor does it alone, without supplemental training and/or experience, qualify the graduate for professional practitioner membership in the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.
Students who have successfully completed the distance learning based, independent study Certificate in Ayurvedic Studies program may be considered for admission to the second year of Sai Ayurvedic College’s practitioner training at the discretion of the Director. While this admission is automatic for graduates of the first year classroom and webcast programs, owing to varying extracurricular requirements graduates of the distance learning program must be interviewed by the Director or his/her appointee and satisfactorily complete a competency examination (which is administered at no cost), as well as meet any other requirements for admission to the second year that the Director may specify.
