If your bachelor’s degree was not completed at a regionally accredited college or university, or recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, copies of the institution’s academic catalog may be required and course syllabi may be requested. If your bachelor’s degree was completed at a college or university outside of the United States, a third-party course-by-course academic evaluation is required. See the Academic Catalog for more information for international students.

*Due to federal, state, and higher education agency regulations, Maryland University of Integrative Health is restricted in the programs into which it can enroll individuals who reside in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, Minnesota, New York, South Dakota, or Wisconsin. Individuals residing in these states are encouraged to review the information on Out-of-State Authorization for Online Education and to contact MUIH’s Office of Admissions at 410-888-9048 extension 6647 or  to discuss and understand their enrollment options. State restrictions do not apply to non-credit Professional and Continuing Education courses and other non-credit online events.


An interview may be required for some applicants. You will be notified by the Office of Graduate Admissions or by the Academic Director of the program if an interview is required.


MUIH accepts and reviews applications on a rolling admissions basis throughout the academic year. In most cases, applications are reviewed as they are received, on a space-available basis. We recommend that you apply two-to-four months before your intended start date.

There are priority application deadlines for the master’s and doctoral degree programs. Students applying after the priority deadline are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible, as space may be limited:

Start Date Priority Deadline Final Deadline Enrollment Deadline Classes Begin
Spring 2020 November 1 December 20 January 2 January 5

Applicants who apply by November 1 will be given priority in the admissions review process.

Applicants who apply between November 2 and by December 20 will be reviewed and accepted on a space-available basis.

Late Application Submissions

Applications will still be accepted and reviewed after the priority application deadline has passed. There will be an increased application fee for applications submitted after the priority application deadline. If the intended start date of the application is no longer available, due to the class being filled, the applicant will be notified by the Office of Graduate Admissions, and their application may be considered for the next available start date.

There are no priority application deadlines for academic certificate programs.

Review & Decision Process

Once the Office of Graduate Admissions has received all required application materials, an application is considered complete and the review process begins. Applications are reviewed by faculty and by the admissions committee. This process typically will take four to six weeks, at which time an electronic letter of decision will be sent. Late applicants may be given this information over the phone or via email when required.


Offers of acceptance may be deferred one time for up to one year. Requests for deferral must be made in writing to the Office of Graduate Admissions. Students who request a deferral will be required to pay the tuition deposit in order to hold their space in the program. If a student with a deferred acceptance does not enroll within one year, that fee is forfeited.

Transfer of Credit and Exemption Review Request Process

Students interested in transfer of credit or course exemption must submit a Transfer Credit and Course Exemption Worksheet to the Registrar’s Office (current students) or the Graduate Admissions Office (applicants) along with official documentation. Please refer to the Transfer and Exemption Policy below.
