AIMC, Berkeley accepts applications on an ongoing basis. There are three start dates each year for our programs: Fall (September), Spring (January), Summer (May).
You will find application dates, admissions requirements, and an outline of the application process below. While priority is placed on students who apply early, any degree-seeking student can apply up until a week before the trimester begins. Late applicants must have all documents submitted one week prior to the start of the trimester. Non-degree seekers, transfer students, and international students should follow the steps outlined below.
We recommend applying early to allow time for Admissions to review your transcripts and to give yourself plenty of time to qualify for financial aid. Once your application is complete, you will also be invited for an admissions interview.

Approximately 15% of current AIMC Berkeley students are transfer students. Transfer students come to us for a variety of reasons. They may be relocating or want to change schools. What they share is a passion for acupuncture and integrative medicine and a determination to succeed. Please call the Admissions department (510)-224-3178 today if you are considering coming to us from another program. We can easily give you a preliminary evaluation and help you know what transferring into our program might look like for you. For transfer applicants from non-CAB approved schools, please apply first and then request a transfer evaluation. We’re happy to help you make the transition as easy as possible!

A transfer student may apply past the Priority Date. Official transfer credit evaluations are provided by the Academic Department once a student applies and submits all official transcripts. The transfer evaluation fee is $100.
Non-degree seekers are students from the C.A.B. tutorial program or are enrolled at other acupuncture schools. Non-matriculating students are limited to taking up to 12 units as non-degree seekers at AIMC before being required to apply for transfer into our program. No exceptions. AIMC reserves the right to refuse admission to any non-degree seeker. Non-degree seekers are subject to a higher rate per credit hour than matriculating students, which can change at any time. Pre-requisites will be evaluated only after the application is complete. No exceptions. Application and registration must be completed in full by the priority application deadline.
AIMC Berkeley welcomes all international applicants to our diverse community of student healers. To apply to the program, international applicants must complete all of the regular entry admissions requirements.
"One of my favorite things about AIMC is the sense of community. We come together to support each other through challenges. Instead of a sense of competitiveness between students, there is a caring community that lifts everybody up. The faculty and staff are approachable and provide wonderful support during your graduate journey."- Master’s Student
