Registration and All the Details
Registration: To register, complete the program Registration Form along with a non-refundable deposit of $250.00. This amount is deducted from the balance of your tuition due if you are accepted into the program. Payment in full is due at the first class unless you have made a payment plan agreement with us. See About Payment Plans below, and be sure to read our Refund and Cancellations Policy.
Certification: Students who meet all program requirements are awarded a “Certificate of Completion.” The certificate acknowledges the successful completion of the Program and recognizes proficiency in herbal therapeutics, basic field botany, herbal formulation, medicine-making techniques and knowledge of the uses of sixty herbs. We do not confer any titles such as, “Certified,” “ Registered” or “Master Herbalist.” For more information, see Is This Program Right for You?
About Payment Plans: We offer the option creating a payment plan allows you to make tuition payments throughout the course. We charge an additional administrative fee of $200.00 to participate in a payment plan. This amount is added to your tuition balance. Payment plans may be customized: you determine the amount and of each payment. You may choose to make one payment per month, or arrange to make several lump sum payments throughout the program. However, we have two requirements: all tuition must be paid in full by November 1, 2018, and all payments must be made on the first of the month. You may begin making tuition payments as soon as you register for the program or on March 1, 2018.
Payment Plan Due Dates: All payments are due on first of the month. We accept payment using debit or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express via Square). If paying by debit or credit card, your payments will be automatically processed on the first of the month. If you prefer to pay by check or money order, your payment must be received by the first of the month and you must also provide us with your credit or debit card number so that, in the event that your payment does not arrive by the first of the month, the amount due will be charged to your card. Payments will not be accepted on any other dates or at monthly classes.
To Apply for a Payment Plan: Please include your proposed payment dates and amounts where requested on the Registration Form. We’ll review your proposal and get back to you within 48 hours to confirm your payment proposal, or to negotiate any changes, if needed. Once we have an agreement, we’ll send you a legally binding promissory note that outlines your payment plan. Your payment plan is activated when we receive your signed promissory note.
IMPORTANT: A payment plan agreement with BotanoLogos School for Herbal Studies is a legally binding document that requires your signature on a promissory note outlining the terms of your payment agreement with us. In the unfortunate event that you are not able to complete the program for any reason, the terms of your payment plan remain in effect and payments must continue to be made until the terms of the agreement are fulfilled.
Work Exchange, Barter and Trades: All agreements for work exchange, barter or trade must be finalized before the first class. We offer a limited number of work exchange, barter and trade options each year and recommend that you apply early. It may be possible to waive up to $700 of the program tuition for an equivalent work exchange, barter or trade arrangement. As with regular admissions, we require a non-refundable deposit of $250.00 when you submit your program Registration Form. This amount is deducted from the balance of your tuition due if you are accepted into the program. You may pay the tuition balance in full at the first class, or send us a proposal for a payment plan. The deadline for completing all work exchange, barter or trade agreements for the 2018 Foundation of Herbalism program is November 1, 2018. After this date, all agreements are void and the dollar amount equivalent to any remaining work exchange, barter or trade is due in full before students may attend any more classes or take the final exam.
What Constitutes Work Exchange, Barter or Trade: If you have specific skills, a service you can provide or an item you are interested in trading, send us a detailed description of what you are offering and the market value (in dollars) for each service or item. We’re open to creative options if you are offering something we truly need or want. Past barter/trades have included: hand-made clothing; graphic design services; fruits and vegetables; art work; massage; furniture; firewood; kefir; and nursery plants.
To Apply for Work Exchange, Barter or Trade: Include a detailed description of the services or items you are offering and their value (in dollars) where requested on the Registration Form. Feel free to email us photos. Please don’t submit vague or general offers such as “helping out” or “yard work.” You must be very precise. For example, “Five hours of yard work, using my own tools, on these dates and times,” “Two one-hour foot reflexology sessions at the location of your choice,” or “Handmade lamb’s wool shawl,” etc. Once we receive your proposal, we’ll contact you. Be aware that work exchange, barter and trade options go quickly so apply as soon as you can for a better chance of being accepted.
