College Accreditation

AMCH was granted institutional accreditation through the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA), the accrediting agency for homeopathic programs in the United States (not an accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education).  The AMCH Homeopathic Practitioner Program is accredited by ACHENA.  The Doctor of Homeopathy program is eligible for ACHENA accreditation and AMCH is currently in the process of  seeking ACHENA candidacy/accreditation for this program.  However, AMCH can provide no assurance that candidacy or accreditation will be granted by ACHENA. Students enrolled in AMCH programs are not eligible to participate in the Federal grant and loan programs.
