How Does Tuition Work at IAA?

IAA is an Internet school with 20+ years of history, well-recognized and well-known among astrologers. We provide a comprehensive and systematic education to prepare professional astrologers. The school is NCGR- and ISAR-associated. After graduating, you receive an IAA Diploma that qualifies you among colleagues as a professional astrologer already, and you can go directly to Level IV certification with NCGR if you wish, skipping levels 1-3.

We have 3 semesters a year: January, April, and September.

If you have a background studying astrology, you can enroll in the Natal Studies Module and proceed from NAT-1 through Nat-7.  Courses range from 8 to 12 weeks in this Module and range in price from $527 to $735. You pay for each semester at the time of registration, or you may purchase the entire Module at a 10% discount.  Tuition includes the required course e-books for NAT-1 through 6.  There are other recommended books and software you will need to buy as you go along, as shown on the site.  There is an early registration discount if you pay within the Early Registration period, which is up to two weeks before class begins.  If you are new to astrology, you will begin with the Basic course, which will familiarize you with basic astrological information needed to succeed in the Natal Studies Module.

Once you establish yourself as a dedicated student, you can work with us on payment options, but the early registration discounts do not apply. We also would love to offer scholarships, but do not presently have any. The scholarships that do come through are given to established students on the recommendations of instructors.

The Natal Studies Module is structured, and each course builds on the course before. Consequently, you take the courses consecutively, with one exception: NAT-6 is Calculations and can be taken at any time.

After finishing NAT-7, you will receive a certificate. To continue to work towards the diploma, you will have to take the five classes in the Professional Studies Module and 12 weeks of elective classes in the Diploma Module. The price for these courses is proportional to the course length; however, there is no early registration discount. The best way for you to calculate your final price is to check the classes you want to take and add up the weeks.
