Do you have campus tours?
Yes. Tours of the Cambridge campus can be booked by appointment by contacting Admissions at 519-650-5533 ext 202 or e-mail: [email protected]. We also hold Information Sessions and offer “Student for a Day” programs for prospective students wanting to explore a career in massage therapy. High school students can arrange job-shadowing by having their school counselor contact CCMH admissions.

Is there a charge for the Student for a Day?
No, this program is free and so are our Admissions Open Houses.  These are available to students investigating a career in massage therapy who wish to experience first-hand what CCMH has to offer.

What are your prerequisites? 
Applicants must have a minimum of a high school diploma or equivalent.  Applicants are required to have successfully completed a weekend Introduction to Massage workshop offered at CCMH along with an optional Medical Terminology BodySystems online course.  Please see our admissions page for a full list of requirements.

How can I determine if a course I have taken elsewhere will meet the prerequisite requirements at CCMH?
If you are uncertain whether your course meets CCMH requirements, please provide us with a copy of your transcripts and a course syllabus/outline of the course or courses for which you are seeking equivalency. If necessary we will conduct a prior learning assessment to determine which courses may be transferable. There is a $100.00 fee for this service.

How many instructors are there for each class?
The student teacher ratio is 12 to 1.

What if there are too many applicants for a given intake?
We deal with applications on a first come first served basis.  The first students to complete their application may be offered a seat in the program.  Once the applicant has reviewed the Student Manual containing all college policies, has signed the enrollment agreement, and paid the tuition deposit of $350, then and only then will a seat be guaranteed in the program.  Any additional applicants over and above the maximum will be placed on a wait list or given first priority at the next intake.
