American College Of Traditional Chinese Medicine
San Francisco, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)

Our History

The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine was founded in 1980 as an independent, not-for-profit educational institution, and in 1986 it became the first college in the country to award a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM). In 1991, the college was granted accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM).

In November of 1987, the College acquired its present campus at 455 Arkansas Street in the Potrero Hill district of San Francisco. In 2004, ACTCM acquired additional space nearby at Pioneer Square to accommodate the doctoral program and provide a larger library for both master's and doctoral students.

In 2005, ACTCM became one of several colleges in the United States authorized to offer a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) degree. The doctoral program provides advanced education in TCM with an emphasis on integrative medicine, and offers specialty training in women’s health, pain management and TCM dermatology. ACTCM also offers innovative massage certificate programs in Tui Na and Shiatsu, and students in these programs have the option to transfer into the MSTCM program. The college gratefully acknowledges all of those who have supported the institution.

Financial Aid News

New Income-Based Repayment Program
On July 1, 2009 a new Income-Based Repayment (IBR) program will go into effect that caps borrowers' monthly loan payments at 15% of their discretionary income (that is, 15% of what a borrower earns above 150% of the poverty level for their family size). Any current or future borrower whose loan payment exceeds 15% of his or her discretionary income is eligible. After 25 years in the program, borrowers' debts will be completely forgiven. Borrowers with hefty debt or low-paying jobs are most likely to qualify for the program. IBR will cover all federal loans -- both Direct and FFELP -- made to students, including Stafford, Grad PLUS and federal consolidation loans, but not those made to parents (PLUS loans). Perkins loans are also eligible if a borrower consolidates them into a FFEL or Direct Loan.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for state or federal assistance under Title IV of the Higher Education Act and enabling regulations, a student must satisfy all of the following criteria:

• Be enrolled at least half-time (at least 6 units in each quarter of enrollment) as a regular student. Students admitted on provisional or conditional status will be given a defined period of eligibility (usually one year) to achieve regular admission

• Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen

• Have demonstrated financial need as determined through completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

• Have completed at least 90 units of coursework at the college level

• Have demonstrated financial need as determined through completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to being awarded need-based financial aid, particularly Subsidized Stafford Loans

• No need must be shown to receive non-need based financial aid (Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Federal Grad Plus Loans). However, all applicants must file the FAFSA

• Be making satisfactory academic progress toward completion of the degree program as defined by ACTCM standards and practices

• Not be in default on a federal student loan at ACTCM or any other institution

• Not have borrowed in excess of the aggregate loan limits allowed for the federal loan programs, unless the excess amount has been repaid or a satisfactory payment arrangement has been made

• Not be a member of any religious community, society, or order, which directs the student's course of duty or that provides students with subsistence support except that members of such religious orders may be eligible for unsubsidized loans

• Not owe a refund on a Pell or SEOG grant at any institution attended

• Be registered for the Selective Service, if a male born after January 1, 1960

• Have a valid social security number
