Enrollment FAQ

Is Astrology University accredited?

Nope! It's not actually possible in our current culture for an astrology-based school to be accredited in the United States. Kepler College tried and they were denied. And they gave it their best shot and played by all the rules. And we commend everyone involved with that endeavor for trying to make it work. Unfortunately, there are a lot of folks in academia who haven't experienced the best of what astrology has to offer, so they doubt it, and despise or fear what they don't understand.

There are people doing rigorous academic work using astrology nonetheless. While we don't claim to be or aim to be a "true" university, we will always offer you the highest quality astrological teaching we're able to, from some of the best and most well-repected teachers in the field.

How do I enroll?

You don't need to do anything special to enroll. All you need to do to get started is pick a class, webinar or course you're interested in and sign up.

I'm new to astrology. Where do I start?

If you're brand new to astrology, we recommend Robert Blaschke's excellent audio course Beginning Astrology: A Language of Life. Robert's course is clear and easy to follow and will give you a great foundation from which to build on your studies.

After completing Robert's course, contact us and we can set up a time to help you create a course of study tailored to your specific goals.

Do I need to get an astrology certification?

The answer to that question depends on your intention. Are you hoping that a certification will improve your chances of attracting clients? If so, you should know right now that it won't. Because the profession of astrology isn't governed by a national board, there are no nationally-recognized standards of certification that the general public knows about. So that wonderful astrology certification you worked years on won't really help you get clients. But will it make you a better astrologer? That's highly likely.

Which brings me to a reason you might actually want to pursue certification: for educational reasons. Many certifications include a well-rounded course of study. You'll likely be asked to read a lot, work up many charts, and complete different forms of testing to attain certification. If you find it hard to self-motivate, or to stay focused in your studies, working towards a certification can give you that extra boost to complete your studies and really apply yourself.

So do you need a certification to be successful? No you don't. But you might want to get one to help motivate you to apply yourself well to your studies.
