Book refunds are dependent on publisher’s policy. To start your coursework on time please order your books ASAP.
TYPE OF INSTRUCTION
Guided Home Study: Each course contains a detailed syllabus with 5 modules of study that the student works through at their own pace. Each module contains instructional videos, course materials, supplementary handouts, and homework assignments. Faculty members who are nationally certified homeopaths (CCH) provide feedback on all assignments, review cases, and grade quizzes and tests. Assignments and casework are submitted electronically. Independent casework is supervised by a nationally certified homeopath (CCH).
Video-based instruction: Classroom lectures, cases from the HSI-Clinic, and HSI-Seminars with prominent homeopaths are on the flash drive. All flash drive videos are copyright protected and are being loaned to the student and remain the property of HSI. The materials are for personal use only and may not be copied or disseminated. Casework is to be held in the strictest confidence. No case may be discussed with anyone other than HSI faculty or participants enrolled in the program.
On-Line Work: HSI-202 students complete introductory casework on-line.
All programs require: Access to a computer with MS Word software, access to equipment capable of playing USB flash drives, access to reliable email and Internet services, competency in spoken and written English.
Admission into HSI courses requires the satisfactory completion of two academic years (60 semester credits/90 quarter credits) at an accredited educational institution, or the equivalent. Upon enrollment submit a copy of a current government picture ID.
If an applicant has not completed 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours at an accredited college or university, he/she must write a letter to the Admissions Committee, explaining how work, military training, other earned certification or experience is equivalent to the formal educational requirement. Include in the letter any reasons the committee should consider regarding the applicant’s ability to succeed in this program. Attach to the letter any documentation that supports the request. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirement, but whose qualifications indicate that they will succeed in the program may be admitted to HSI 101 on a probationary basis. Once HSI 101 is successfully completed, the student will be formally admitted to the Practitioner Certificate courses.

CONCERNS AND COMPLAINTS
It is highly unlikely that an HSI community member will encounter any problem that cannot be resolved through open, respectful and professional communication. However, if such a circumstance should arise, members of the HSI community may utilize the following procedure:
If a student, faculty or staff member has a complaint regarding a member of the HSI Community, it is the individual’s responsibility 1) to bring the issue to the attention of the individual(s) involved and attempt to resolve the problem, or 2) request assistance from the HSI Director or Student Advisor.
A complaint may be made to the HSI administration in writing (Mail to: HSI, 727 Sheridan Ave., Loveland, CO 80537). Written complaints must be signed, dated, and contain a clear description of the problem, its circumstances, and any attempts to resolve the conflict. A written complaint will receive a response from an HSI administrator within five days of its receipt.
When a complaint is received, the HSI Director or Student Advisor will propose a plan of action. In the event that the issue is still unresolved, the Board of Directors will make any final decisions concerning the matter.
If upon the program’s disposition of a legitimate student complaint, the student is not satisfied that the program has adhered to its policy or been fair in its handling of the complaint, the student may contact ACHENA (Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America) at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the State of Colorado.
Complaints may be filed online with the Division of Private Occupational Schools at www.highered.colorado.gov/dpos.
