Transfer credits are awarded for courses taken at a TCM college that is nationally accredited and approved by the California Acupuncture Board, as long as they are equivalent both in content and length to Five Branches DAc or MAc courses and awarded a letter grade of C or above.
When transferring from a graduate level program in Chinese medicine to our DAc or MAc programs, up to 25% of clinical training courses and 50% of academic courses may be eligible for transfer.
TCM-related courses from a TCM college not approved by the California Acupuncture Board will only be accepted within the 50% limitations of the Board. TCM courses from tutorial or apprenticeship programs are non-transferable. Transfer credit is not available for work or life experience.
A transfer fee will apply to the evaluation of all courses transferred into the programs, excluding the five natural science courses. If a Challenge exam is required, an additional fee will apply. Please refer to Cost & Financial Aid for more information.
