To register for the Foundations of Herbalism, submit a program application, along with a non-refundable deposit of $250.00. This amount is deducted from the balance of your tuition. Payment in full is due at the first class unless you have made arrangements to take part in a Payment Plan. See our Refunds and Cancellation Policy and About Payment Plans below.
Certification: Students who meet all program requirements are awarded a “Certificate of Completion.” The certificate acknowledges the successful completion of the Program and recognizes demonstrated 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 of paying your tuition by making your payments throughout the program. If you are proposing to make more than two payments, an administrative fee of $150.00 is added to your tuition balance. Payment plans may be customized to meet your budget and you determine the amount you pay each month. You may choose to make one payment per month, or make several lump sum payments throughout the program. However, all tuition must be paid in full by November 1, 2019, and all payments must be received on the first of the month. Begin making tuition payments as soon as you register for the program or start monthly payments on March 1, 2020.
Payment Plan Due Dates: All payments are due on the first of the month. We accept payment by check, money order, credit or card debit (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express). If paying by credit or debit card, your payments will be automatically processed on the first of the month. If you choose to pay by check or money order, your payment must be received by the first of the month, and you also need to provide us with your credit or debit card number in the event that your check does not arrive by the first of the month. If this happens, the payment amount due will be charged to your card. Payments will not be accepted on any other dates or at class weekends.
To Apply for a Payment Plan: Please include your proposed payment plan when you register for the program using the digital application on our website. When we receive your payment proposal, we’ll be in touch to confirm or negotiate any changes, if needed. Once we approve your proposal, we’ll send you a legally binding promissory note that outlines the 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 exchanges, 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. The deadline for completing all work exchange, barter or trade agreements for the 2020 Foundations of Herbalism Program is November 1, 2020. 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; website design; 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) when you complete the program application. Feel free to also email us photos if relevant. 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 registration, deposit and proposal, we’ll contact you. If we are unable to accept your services and you will be unable to attend without doing some kind of trade, we’ll refund your deposit. Tuition discounts are applied to the balance of your tuition which is due at the first class in March unless you have requested a Payment Plan.
