Here’s what you need to know, including policies, procedures, payment info and more…
1. Tuition deposits are nonrefundable.
Perspective students should be at least 18 years of age for all classes except our teen and kids classes. Students must first complete a registration form and submit a class deposit. Incomplete registration forms or registrations sent without deposits will be returned. Accepted registration forms will be confirmed and will hold your space. If a note from your therapist is necessary, it must be provided before the start of classes.
Upon acceptance into the program, students will receive a contract with payment dates, policies and procedures . Students who fail to make payments on time face suspension or dismissal from the program.
TRSAC will determine final acceptance or rejection.
4. Non-Discrimination Policy:
TRSAC admits students of any color, race, ethnic origin, gender, religious background, or sexual orientation, to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to the students at the school. TRSAC does not discriminate because of color, race, ethnic origin gender, religious background, or sexual orientation in its admissions policies, educational policies, scholarship programs, or any other school administered programs. All students, staff and faculty must adhere to the TRSAC non-discrimination policy at all times. Violations of the policy will result in immediate dismissal from the program or employment.
5. Course Start Date:
TRSAC reserves the right to postpone the start date of a class until said class is filled. Students who are unable to attend due to a class postponement are entitled to a full refund of the balance.
6. Attendance and Lateness:
• The first five classes for Reiki Levels 1 and 2 are mandatory. If you miss one of these classes, you are required to do a make-up. Make-up classes can be scheduled with your classroom teacher for a fee of $80.
• Three or more absences in any given course will result in non-completion of the course and no certificate will be awarded. Students are responsible for making up any material or assignments missed. Students can make-up a class by participating in the equivalent class of another course, if it’s available, at no additional cost. If an equivalent class is not available, students can arrange for a private make-up with a teacher. The cost of a private make-up is $80 per session.
• As a courtesy to the class, please call or email if you will be absent or late. Three lateness’s of 10 minutes or more will count as an official absence.
8. Reiki is not a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis or treatment. Reiki practitioners/teachers do not diagnose conditions, prescribe or perform medical treatment, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. It is your responsibility to see a licensed physician, or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological ailment you have.
9. Reiki practice is a form of non-invasive and non-manipulative touch. If you am uncomfortable in any way during a Reiki session or class, youhave the right to question your practitioner/teacher and/or request that the session be terminated. If you experience any pain or discomfort during a session, immediately inform your practitioner or teacher so that the pressure and/or touch may be adjusted to your level of comfort.
10. Any false or incomplete information contained on your class registration form will be grounds for dismissal from the program. Keep The Reiki School and Clinic updated as to any changes in your medical profile and contact information. There shall be no liability on The Reiki School and Clinic’s part should you fail to do so.
All students are advised to purchase student liability insurance, in addition to the cost of tuition, and provide proof of insurance by the first day of class.
Student liability insurance is different than health insurance; it insures that the students are covered/protected in class, clinic and in all school-sanctioned activities, against any alleged damage or injury to a client. You can purchase your insurance from any legitimate provider. Both the ABMP (Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals) and the IARP (International Association of Reiki Professionals) offer student insurance. If you already have professional liability insurance that covers Reiki, you do not need to purchase student insurance. Simply submit to us your proof of professional coverage. You will be given information on how to purchase this insurance in your student orientation package. Student insurance is not mandatory. If you choose not to purchase student insurance, you will be required to sign a ‘student certification of insurance coverage opt-out’ form. This form states that you’ve been advised of the benefits of student liability insurance and have chosen not to purchase it.
We save 2 spaces in each Reiki Level 1-3 training for partial scholarship recipients. We do not require any proof of financial hardship; We trust if you’re asking for a scholarship, you really need one. The scholarships are given out on a first-come, first- serve basis; to receive a scholarship you need to register for class and pay the deposit.
We offer $100 towards the cost of a Reiki 1 or 2 training, and $200 towards the cost of Reiki Level 3 training . Scholarships and scholarship amounts for Reiki Master training or any of our continuing education classes are provided on a case-by-case basis and determined by the instructor/office.
We don’t typically offer work-study programs at the school, but if you think there’s something we might be very interested in bartering for, please contact us (link- mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)
We offer a $100 credit towards the balance of your tuition, for each friend who registers for a Reiki class while you’re a student. Credits are not transferable for any other workshop, event, class or service.

The Reiki School + Clinic is closed (due to weather) when the School District of Philadelphia is closed. If you wake up and there’s snow, just check to see if they are closed or if they have an early dismissal. In either of those cases our night classes will also be closed too.
In the evening the snow tends to freeze making for unsafe driving conditions and long commutes. We want you to stay safe!
