What is NDCAS?

The Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Centralized Application Service (NDCAS) is designed to save you time and reduce your costs by allowing you to apply to multiple naturopathic medical schools at once using a single, web-based application and only one set of materials. NDCAS applicants report a high satisfaction level with using the centralized system.

As a NDCAS applicant, you may:

º Submit a single set of transcripts, essays and reference letters – and reapply without resubmitting.
º Choose to complete the application all at once, or over multiple sittings.
º Pay the application fee via e-commerce.
º Monitor the progress and status of your application online.
º Have peace of mind knowing that your privacy is protected through a secure system accessible only by admissions staff and you.
º Access assistance via the helpline during business hours (see top of page).

Please note: NDCAS does not determine whether an applicant has met the naturopathic school or college requirements or is eligible for admission; this decision will be made by each respective school or college after receiving and evaluating your application.

It’s easy to get started:

  1. Create an NDCAS account and review the Instructions & FAQs.
  2. Begin preparing the supporting documentation.
  3. Apply to your chosen school(s) with the ease of one application and one set of fees! (No software installation required)
