Financial Assistance

Exploring Tuition Funding to Become an Osteopathic Practitioner

Education and training for your future as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner is a valuable investment and at the CAO, we want to help make this easy. One of the benefits of being a small college is that each student receives personalized attention from the minute they come in to explore their future in osteopathy.

The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy is certified by the Minister of Employment and Social Development Canada (formerly HRSDC) and approved to issue the T2202A tax form for tuition credit.

The CAO in Hamilton is proud to announce that students enrolled in our program may be eligible, if qualified, for loans, grants, or awards granted under the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).

CAO West students at our campus in Calgary, who are enrolled in our program may also be eligible, if qualified, for loans, grants, or awards granted under the Alberta Student Aid.

Private lending institutions are also very supportive of our students since our tuition is low and our graduate incomes are high.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your tuition and financial aid, our friendly admissions representatives are happy to chat with you and answer your questions. Please fill out this form or give us a call at 1-866-320-9898.

Out of Province Students

Are you looking to study osteopathy but live outside of Ontario or Alberta? There is no need to move to Hamilton or Calgary to enroll and gain admission to the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy!

With the in person lab days held 2 consecutive days each month during the classroom semesters, many students commute in and stay in the area with fellow students or find temporary accommodation, then return home where they are able to continue online and independent study.

During the clinical semesters of year 1, 2 and 3, students do clinical rotations in our practice clinic. Each student does 4 rotations that each span 3 consecutive days. In the clinical semester of year 4, students do rotations in our public charity clinic. The school makes special accommodations for those coming in from out of province, allowing students to combine clinical shifts, to limit transportation costs and time.

The CAO provides graduates of its program with a post-graduate diploma. Completion of the program does not result in being conferred a degree designation. In Canada, there are no Canadian universities that offer degrees in osteopathy, rather osteopathic education is almost exclusively offered by private colleges.
