Holos University Graduate Seminary
Come home to yourself
HU encourages all individuals, regardless of prior education, to study the remarkably broad fields of Spiritual Healing and Holistic Health with a focus on one of the Special Emphasis Tracks. The Easy-Access Certificate program provides an opportunity for those individuals who may not have the necessary academic prerequisites to enter a graduate program to study with the same faculty as graduate students and earn a Certificate verifying those studies.
Certificate students are required to select and follow a Special Emphasis Track, which constitutes their selected Program. In exceptional cases, a student may get authorization from the Dean to enroll under a special free-choice option. Certificates under this option carry the designation: Certificate in Spiritual Healing and Holistic Health. The Dean is the program Director for the free-choice Certificate Program.
There are no prerequisites in the Certificate Programs. After successfully completing all the courses that are required for a Certificate Program students may request that specific Certificate from the Office of the Registrar. There is a processing and mailing fee for each certificate.
General Information: Master's Program - Transfers from the Certificate Program
Easy Access and Certificate Program students who meet the requirements to be admitted to the graduate program at HU may transfer the courses taken in a Program Track directly into the Master's or Combined Master's/Doctoral program at HU. Students are required to contact the Registrar to initiate a change from Certificate standing to Master's Degree program standing. A new application is necessary.
