Hard-copy materials which you receive in damaged condition will gladly be exchanged for the same item within 15 days of original receipt.
Withdrawal Refund Policy
After the 3-day review period of home study course materials, tuition will only be refunded as follows. Refunds are prorated based on the payment or signature date, the date stamp of the request to withdraw, and the length of the course (6 months for Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapist Packages of courses; 3 months for all other home study courses). The maximum refund will be the tuition paid less the materials cost (50% of tuition) and less a cancellation charge ($150 or 25% of tuition less materials, whichever is less). The refund is calculated as a percentage of tuition less materials: within the first 10% of the course the refund is 90%; between 10% and less than 25% the refund is 75%; between 25% and less than 50% the refund is 50%; between 50% and less than 75% the refund is 25%; after 75% completion of the course the student is responsible for 100%. Time payment fees are nonrefundable. Refunds are mailed within 30 days after the request to withdraw. The policy for granting credit for previous training does not impact the refund policy.
Non-Acceptance & Discontinuance
If THI does not accept your enrollment, your paid tuition (which includes materials cost) will be refunded in full. If THI discontinues educational services during your enrollment period (which is calculated at 6 months for Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy Packages and 3 months for all other courses and does not include extensions) and you have not yet completed the course, you will be refunded tuition less the cost of materials. The cost of materials is calculated at 50% of course tuition. All assignments for completion must be received on or before November 30, 2023 in order to be considered for certification. The school is closing December 1, 2023.
Course tuition (which includes materials cost) and Additional Products prices are listed in the “Enrollment & Order Form.” After reviewing and approving your application and order, and after checks and credit cards have cleared, THI will give you access to online course materials and products and mail you hard-copy duplicate and supplement materials.
- US Shipping: To locations within the US, items are usually shipped through USPO mail.
- International Shipping: Items are usually shipped through USPO or FedEx, as available. It can take 7-10 business days or more to reach customs. Foreign duties and taxes are paid by the recipient. If shipping exceeds shipping charged at check-out (because country’s vary widely), you will receive an email with the amount due and expected delivery time. Go to the Shop tab, Make a Payment and enter the additional amount due. Or choose to receive a refund on shipping and print your workbooks. You have access to them online. If books or equipment are included, you can choose to ship only those or purchase them on your own. You will be given the opportunity to choose what is best for you at your location.
- Expedited Shipping: Faster delivery is available upon request at additional applicable fees. Let us know if you’d like this.
A $20 fee is assessed on all returned checks; and if any payment is not able to be cashed or credited this may also result in immediate dismissal at THI’s sole discretion.
Time payments are available through THI as follows: Call or email us for approval. You agree to the following: a $150 processing fee is paid with tuition over 5 payments. No interest is charged. Shipping is paid up front. THI will automatically charge your credit card or accept payment for the 5 equal installments on about the same day of the month for the 5 months from your enrollment. THI has the right to hold your credit card for security. If any one payment is not received and/or able to be cashed within 10 days after the due date the full amount becomes due and payable immediately and this also may result in immediate dismissal and therefore the non-issuance of certification at the sole discretion of THI. Certificates are issued only after all payments are received in full and in a timely manner.
Students study at their own pace, so there is no policy regarding postponement of starting date and its effect on refunds (Rule III.H.3).
Prerequisites for Enrollment
A high school diploma, GED or equivalent, emotional maturity, high principles and a responsible attitude are required for enrollment. Prospective students may discuss personal, educational and occupational plans with THI staff prior to enrolling.
Advanced Standing Credit for Previous Study
If you are a graduate from another school and would like to advance your certification with THI, submit proof of prior studies such as previous certificates, transcripts or letters documenting the hours, material covered, dates and instructors’ names. A THI staff member will need to approve your previous training hours. At the discretion of the THI Administration, prior training and/or experience may allow you to enter with credits and advance your certification with THI.
Enrollments are accepted year round based on the home study format. After completing the Enrollment Form, return it with your tuition. Upon acceptance we will forward the course material to you. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, religious preference, national origin or marital status.
All course assignments are to be received by THI in a timely manner (within 6 months from the date of enrollment in the Transpersonal Hypnotherapy course and Clinical Hypnotherapy Packages of courses and within 3 months for all other home study courses). If you are unable to complete assignments within the stated time-frame, notify THI by email of your desire for an extension. If THI finds your request to be satisfactory, it may grant a 30 day probationary period for you to complete the course assignments. Further extensions are at the sole discretion of THI.
THI’s feedback system is designed to build self-confidence and competence. Exams (open-book) and student materials are graded under the Director’s supervision. Transpersonal Hypnotherapy course students must obtain a passing score of 75% to receive certification with THI. Students who fail to pass the exam may request to retake it one time. This second exam needs to be received by THI before the course assignment due date (or probationary due date if applicable). All other courses are graded pass/fail. After passing, your certificate (which is also notification of a passing grade) will be emailed or mailed to you.
In any course, if you have difficulty, you may request tutoring at an additional cost at current rates.
Materials turned into THI become the property of THI. Please retain copies for your files if you would like them.
Transferability of Credits
Transferability of THI credits to any other educational institution is not guaranteed. THI does not hold written agreements of current acceptability of credits on file from other institutions (Rule III.H.1.0).
THI does not promise or provide placement assistance to graduates; however, we will send a statement of your training, including CEUs, to a person, school or organization of your choice at standard rates. THI maintains school and student records for no more than 6 years, according to state law.
THI does not make claims regarding future income since throughout the country the need for hypnotherapists varies. Those with good therapeutic and self-promotion skills usually have as much work as they target for themselves over a reasonable amount of time. Jobs in this area are generally self-created as small businesses; some choose to affiliate with health practitioners. As hypnotherapy becomes more accepted, more people will seek hypnotherapists. Income varies by region and time on the job and are established by the individual. Success in the field requires initiative.
Conduct & Dismissal
Participants are expected to conduct themselves professionally. This includes, but is not limited to, complying with THI policies and paying tuition in full. Failure to do so is cause for dismissal. Other causes for dismissal include, but are not limited to, any behavior which might jeopardize THI or its reputation; cheating; theft; verbal or physical abuse of any member of the THI community; breach of privacy or confidentiality. If a participant is dismissed, re-entrance into the program will be at the sole discretion of THI.
If you have a concern, please speak with the THI director as soon as possible. If you feel it needs more resolution, submit your concerns in writing to the address listed herein. We will investigate your concern further, attempt to resolve it and notify you of THI’s position on the situation within 30 days.

Information for Colorado Students
The Colorado Legislature amended the Mental Health Practices Act for Unlicensed Psychotherapists in July 2020. The Department of Regulatory Agencies, Division of Professions and Occupations takes the position that under C.R.S. Section 12-245-703 of the Mental Health Practices Act, no new unlicensed psychotherapists can or will be registered in the state. DORA DPO published a “’sample’ summary of current psychotherapies” which includes a broad definition of “hypnotherapy” and “neuro-linguistic programming.” These are part of your Transpersonal Hypnotherapy 150-hr course curriculum.
Unless you are a licensed health care provider, or licensed or previously registered as an unlicensed psychotherapist through DORA, practicing hypnotherapy or NLP or holding yourself out as practicing hypnotherapy or NLP will put you at risk of the penalties in C.R.S. Section 12-20-407. Links for select Colorado laws and regulations are provided below.
To practice in Colorado, you are encouraged to consult with your local personal attorney before signing up for a course. You must likely limit your practice to the use of hypnosis in non-therapeutic applications, and describe yourself as a hypnotist and NOT a hypnotherapist or NLP practitioner or describe your practice as hypnotherapy or NLP since those terms are now grouped under the term “psychotherapy” in Colorado.
While we cannot offer any assurance, our assessment of the statute and descriptions of hypnotherapy and NLP depict a difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy. This is a distinction being used for example by the State of New York. It likely depends on how hypnosis is applied. Hypnosis itself is not a therapeutic practice. Therapy suggests the existence of a mental disorder, and your training in hypnosis is solely to work with functional individuals in order to enrich their lives.
We encourage you (under the guidance of your legal counsel) to describe yourself as a hypnotist or hypnosis practitioner using hypnosis techniques in non-therapeutic applications. Hypnosis is used as a tool to achieve your clients’ goals. You could also describe yourself as an intuitive guide, intuitive practitioner, intuitive life coach, intuitive consultant, meditation instructor, self-awareness coach, etc. You are utilizing guided imagery, shamanic visualizations, shamanism, shamanic past life journeying, spiritual principles, personal growth/empowerment techniques and stress management/reduction techniques.
You can apply what you learn to a variety of practices such as yoga, meditation instruction, mind-body and energetic training, health coaching, and teaching. And, of course, your training with THI always assists you in your personal and professional growth.
When you complete your Transpersonal Hypnotherapy (150 hr course) you receive 3 certificates: Transpersonal Hypnotherapy course completion certificate, Certified Hypnotist and Certified Hypnotherapist. These are valid as your education wherever you live and you can display them proudly.
You may also want to take the Intuitive Skills Courses and refer to yourself as an intuitive guide who utilizes hypnotic techniques.
Consult with your local attorney to see what is right for you.
