Our massage school prepares students for a rewarding career in massage therapy! Here are our admission requirements.
If this sounds like you, here's what you need to do next:
Students looking to transfer to ASIS must submit official transcripts for a transfer assessment prior to starting a massage therapy program at any of our campuses. Student’s transfer will only be accepted if credits come from an accredited school approved by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Transfer students are required to complete 50% of the ASIS program.
A transfer applicant may transfer in Anatomy & Physiology (110 Hours) and/or Kinesiology (62 Hours). Applicants must also demonstrate that they have completed with a passing grade the entire Anatomy & Physiology or Kinesiology curriculum at their previous school. If an applicant has completed the correct amount of hours but has not completed the entire curriculum at their previous school, ASIS will not award transfer credit. A passing grade of 70% (GPA 2.0) or higher is required.
Official Transcripts must show that they have completed with a passing grade the entire modality curriculum at their previous school. If an applicant has completed the correct amount of hours but has not completed the entire curriculum at their previous school, ASIS will not award transfer credit. A passing grade of 70% (GPA 2.0) or higher is required.
Up to 50% of the clinic may be transferred following the procedure for transfer outlined in the science section. There is no challenge exam or tuition reduction for transferring Clinic time. If the maximum number of hours is awarded, the student is exempt from 1/2 the student requirements. Transcripts must show they have successfully completed those hours in accordance with their school’s policy.
ASIS limits combined transfers of Massage and Non-Massage Modalities hours to 50% or less of ASIS course hours (Maximum 350 Hours), plus 50% or less of Student Clinic hours (Maximum 50 Hours). All transferred hours must have been completed within 7 years of admissions.
Upon graduating, our students are licensed by the State of Arizona and equipped and eligible to sit for the Federation for State Massage Therapy Boards' (FSMTB) MBLEx exam, which allows graduates to practice massage therapy in most states.
If you plan to put your massage therapy education to use outside of Arizona, make sure to research the requirements in that particular state. The FSMTB website has a comprehensive list of state licensure requirements and is a good place to begin your research.
We are licensed by the Arizona State Board for Private Post-Secondary Education and accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA).
