2019 Introductory and Intermediate Herbal Course New Editions Questions

I’m an enrolled student. How do the 2019 new programs affect me?

The great news is you can decide to stay just where you are or join us in these new offerings.

Option 1. Stay where you are.

The Introductory Herbal Course and Intermediate Herbal Course have been transformed with a new course flow, which makes it impossible to migrate these changes into our current course structure. There is just TOO much added to the classes for this option to work for our current students. If you would like to stick it out in the wonderful course you are already enrolled in, no worries! You don’t have to do a thing! Just continue to enjoy your studies as if nothing changed.

Option 2. Join us in the fresh programs!

We open the doors to you in these fresh programs, available to begin on or after February 20, 2019! Whether you have completely finished your course(s), worked your way through part of it, or haven’t started yet, you have the option to sign up for this transfer option to enjoy the expanded course(s) from the very beginning. Transferring is permanent and cannot be undone. Upon transferring, you will immediately lose access to your old program.

When I transfer, is my access to my old course removed right away?

Yes, access to previous course is immediately removed. This cannot be reversed. The new course will be available on February 20, 2019.

Is the $50 transfer fee per course transfer? If I want to transfer, do I pay a fee for each course?

Yes, the $50 fee is per course (Introductory and Intermediate) for students currently enrolled in the courses who would like to transfer. If you transfer into the Introductory Herbal Course new edition, the fee is $50. And if you transfer into the Intermediate Herbal Course new edition, that is also $50. In other words, to transfer into one course is $50; to transfer into both is $100. You can decide to transfer into one or both (or neither).

When I transfer, will I lose progress on my previous course?

Yes, access to previous course is immediately removed. All transfer students must begin their programs again from the beginning and retake the quizzes. However, all previously earned certificates will remain in your dashboard.

If I transfer to the new course and decide I want my old one back, can I cancel the transfer?

No. All transfers are permanent and cannot be reversed.

I already earned a certificate in the Introductory and/or Intermediate Herbal Course(s) and my course has expired. Can I access the new editions?

Yes! If your account is in good standing and is paid-in-full, you are invited to enroll yourself as a transfer student into the new editions. While your previously earned certificates will remain in your dashboard, your prior course will be removed permanently. This cannot be undone.

If I choose to transfer, will I have to restart my course?

Students who choose to transfer will need to start their studies over from the beginning. Course access time will reset with the transfer so you can start your studies in your new course when you are ready! Once you start your new class, you’ll have access to a full year’s access for the Introductory Herbal Course and 2 years access for the Intermediate Herbal Course.

All previously earned certificates will remain in your student dashboard.

Do I have to transfer to a new course?

Students currently enrolled in the Introductory and/or Intermediate Courses have the option to transfer to the new editions of these courses. Transfers are not available for other courses.

If I'm currently enrolled in both classes want to transfer into just one of the new course editions, do I need to transfer into both or can I choose which one to transfer to?

You can choose which course you’d like to transfer into.

What’s different about the new editions?

Between the two new editions of the Introductory and Intermediate Herbal Courses, we have added:

  • 36 videos between the courses
  • New and expanded monographs––over 225 between the courses
  • Many new, revised, and/or expanded lessons
  • New compiled Materia Medica Reference charts
  • New and revised course graphics
  • Fresh inspiring photography
  • New hands-on experiential exercises
  • Additional recipes
  • Redesigned course booklets
  • Revised quizzes
  • New transcript download options for all videos
  • The most current and accurate research
  • Re-structured course presentation
  • Lower monthly payment plan options

How does the transfer work?

  1. With an update to course pricing in place, our transfer fee is currently being offered at a flat rate of $50—far less than the difference between our original course and new course tuition rates (up to 75% off). With all the updates to class, this is a very fair arrangement for our students to get full access to the new programs AND an extension on course access while still covering our costs.
  2. Your transfer purchase cannot be undone and cannot be refunded. Absolutely no exceptions.
  3. With your purchase of the transfer, your course featured in your Student Dashboard will be replaced by the updated program. You will not have access to your old program and quizzes after you make your transfer.
  4. The new courses will be ready for you to begin on or after February 20th.
  5. Keep in mind, some of the course structure has changed, so you will begin your studies from the very beginning of class. Bonus: your expiration date is reset! Just click “Start Course” when you would like to begin!
  6. If you graduated from your class already, your certificate will stay in place. You will get an opportunity to earn a second certificate with your completion.

Why are you charging an administrative fee to transfer?

The new editions of these courses are valued much higher than the original courses you originally enrolled in, with numerous updates, additions, and revisions throughout.

Running an online school with thousands of daily students is complex, and, among many moving parts includes back-end technical features that are highly customized. This customization allows us to offer our students the best possible experience, in terms of aesthetics, function, and ease of use. With this customization comes large expenses, including customization that will allow you to easily transfer to the new editions.

We are pleased to offer students the $50 transfer option, a small fee relative to the enormous costs involved in this project. In our view, this is a good deal for students. These new editions are worth much more than $50––AND, the transfer allows the student to reset their access to these courses, even those who have already earned their certificates, thereby providing them with a free extension on their course.
