Welcome IIN Graduates and Students! The natural affiliation between International Health Coach University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, both dedicated to advancing wellness and shifting health care, has matured into a highly collaborative and beneficial partnership. We are pleased to announce that the two organizations have now entered into a formal academic articulation agreement.

Overview of the Articulation Agreement

IHCU, as a new graduate school, has carefully reviewed all aspects of IIN’s Health Coach Training Program curriculum and assessment processes. We have determined that IIN graduates have met the learning outcomes consistent with selected classes in our master’s degree and qualify for advanced standing.

What this Articulation Agreement Means for You

As an IIN graduate with a bachelor’s degree, you will be eligible to apply for our master’s program and will be “exempt” from twelve credits of the IHCU coursework. The IHCU master’s degree can be completed entirely online. Earning advanced standing requires certification from the International Association of Health Coaches. Certification is earned through examination.
