General Information Course Descriptions The Curriculum
There are three types of student programs, they are:
Those considering admission to the CMS as a personal growth or degree student must give evidence of maturity and stability in their personal and professional life. Those wishing to achieve practitioner status must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age.
Application for Admission
If you meet the requirements for application (see above) and you wish to enroll in any CMS practitioner program you may contact The College of Metaphysical Studies to receive an attitude assessment package designed to discover those who have the special talents required for the ministry, healing, teaching and/or related fields and who, therefore, will gain admission to the CMS practitioner programs.
If you wish to enroll in the personal growth or degree programs the attitude assessment package will not be necessary. Special non-degree application forms for the personal growth program as well as the degree and NAMI certification programs are enclosed herein.
All applicants must complete an application form which includes personal data, resume of training and experience and philosophical questions. A fee of thirty dollars ($30.00 US funds or credit cards) must accompany the application for all CMS degree or NAMI certification programs to cover the costs of administrative processing. If for any reason the applicant is not accepted to the CMS the administrative fee will be refunded. The $30 fee is not applicable to students wishing only to enroll in personal growth courses. Personal growth students may at any time transfer their CMS credits to any degree or NAMI certification program by forwarding the $30 administrative processing fee and updating their application form.
Following a careful evaluation of the application forms, all applicants will be notified as to their admission status.
At the discretion of the CMS, other requirements may be added.

To obtain an Associates degree, a student must be a high school graduate or equivalent. A student must have a Bachelor's degree before being permitted to study for a Master's degree, and must have a Master's degree before being permitted to study for a Doctor's degree. Credits from other institutions will be considered only for those courses which are comparable to metaphysical courses required by CMS. Credits will be applied at the discretion of CMS.
For the Master's and Doctor's degrees, all courses must be designated by the Dean of Education and are considered graduate level courses.
Occasionally the College of Metaphysical Studies awards an "Honorary Degree of Divinity" for meritorious recognition rather than academic coursework. This occurs only when the individual has met the rigid requirements set up by our Academic/Pastoral Board.
No honorary degree may have substantially the same name as any earned degree given by an institution in Florida. For example, “Doctor of Philosophy” cannot be given as an honorary degree, but “Doctor of Divinity” can be. Each honorary degree shall prominently bear on its face the words, “honorary degree.” (Rule 6E-1.0041, Florida Administrative Code)
