NOTICE: SCHYS’s admissions process will change effective January 1st, 2019 including fees, payment options, and what’s included (see below).

SCHYS program overview

All SCHYS programs meet via a weekend module format.  Each program meets approximately one weekend per month for a designated number of months.  In addition to the weekend program modules, there are other requirements for each program such as online classes, practicum, quizzes, exams, and other outside study.  To find the particular requirements for any program, please contact us. 

SCHYS uses an online website, Schoology.com, to organize each program. All students will be required to have access to a computer with appropriate software and current operating system to utilize Schoology.com, and to play audio and video media for required online classes.  All course information, materials, online classes, quizzes and exams for each program are set up on schoology.com.  Some online classes are audio recordings and some are video recordings, therefore students must have technological capabilities to take these classes--we can assist students who have less technological aptitude.  

Entrance Requirements

All applicants must be 18 years or older, and must be fluent in verbal and written English - insufficient English skills may prohibit successful completion of the program. We require all of our students to have a strong commitment to personal growth and self-awareness.

Policies and Procedures

Tuition

NOTICE:

In 2019 Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School is changing the way we structure the Tuition.  The new 2019 payment for tuition looks to be higher than in 2018, but the reason is that the 2019 Tuition includes everything needed for the program with the exception of books, travel, room & board, and the Graduation Fee.  So actually, the tuition has decreased just a little. We believe this helps to simplify things for everyone.

We have also made a change in the amount and timing of initial deposit and to accompany the Enrollment Agreement.  We now will require a larger deposit payment to accompany the Enrollment Agreement, and require the deposit at three-months prior to the start instead of just one-month prior.  We feel we needed students to show their level of commitment as early on as possible and this larger payment shows the commitment level of the student and therefore allows better planning for programs.  Because of this larger payment as the deposit, the payments for each option are reduced making it much easier for students to budget for the duration of the program. And, because we’ve included all costs, students need not worry about additional expenses along the way.

Students who enrolled in 2018 will be able to opt for the payment structure on their 2018 Enrollment Agreement, or update to the new 2019 payment structure. Students who have already paid all or partial tuition or the $100 Enrollment Agreement who wish to use the 2019 Enrollment Agreement instead, please follow the appropriate guideline below:

  • Students who have paid the $100 Enrollment Agreement ONLY, use discount code 2019EA to pay only $908 as your Enrollment Agreement Fee, then continue with payments on a newly signed 2019 Enrollment Agreement.

  • Contact SCHYS if you've already made any tuition payments on a 2018 Enrollment Agreement and we will do the math and get you updated to a 2019 Payment Plan.
