Financing any degree program requires considerable planning and budgeting. Aside from tuition students should also budget for books and supplies which runs anywhere between $200 to $1,000, depending on the program.
All major financial institutions and banks of most countries have loan programs and/or lines of credit available to NUMSS (USA) students with good credits. Please contact your bank for details such as eligibility requirements, interest rates and applications.
Currently we do not offer any scholarships, however we are in the process of establishing a number of scholarships.
NUMSS (USA) graduates who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada and who practice in Canada are eligible for a number of start up loans and grants, including up to $60,000 in non-payable grant offered under the Start Smart See Fund program of the Ontario Centers of Excellence (OCE), up to $15,000 in business expansion loan offered under the Futurpreneur Canada program of the Canadian government and up to $50,000 in loan by the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC).
Our Canadian students are eligible to receive up to $5,000 in Tuition, Education, and Textbook tax credits from Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The tax form will be issued by NUMSS (USA) and given to students in February of each year upon request.
Your tuition and other expenses incurred to earn a degree for purpose of creating income, or increasing your income is considered a business tax expense by the tax authorities of many countries and as such you can use them to reduce your business income tax if you own a business while studying at NUMSS (USA).
I am happy that Honorable Justin Trudeau the prime minister of Canada and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau write me once in a while! I received these letters recently:
Shahin, your hope, hard work and unwavering support have made it possible to make a real and positive difference in the lives of Canadians. (Justin)
It’s your support that has made this important progress possible — so thank you, Shahin. Justin and I couldn’t be more proud to be building this shared home — a better Canada — with you at our side. (Sophie)

We offer more than osteopathic education. We graduate successful manual osteopaths because we teach them everything we know about business and self improvement. Here is an email received from one of Dr Pourgol’s students in Toronto (Ontario, Canada).
Hi Dr. Pourgol,
When I signed up to study Osteopathy through online studies I had no idea that I would gain more than Osteopathy knowledge. Ever since I watched the Schultz hour lecture in the Business management module my life has never been the same. I am a single mother of 3 and work in a hectic health setting and now deliberately take time every week to myself to relax and allow my Frontal Cortex to work. This has helped me not only to visualize how I want to pursue my career as a Manual Osteopath after graduation but also helped me put my personal life into perspective.
I will never forget this lecture and appreciate all you do to inspire us to think bigger than our current limitations.
World famous natural health expert, American naprapath & osteopath, Dr Daniel Nuzum (from Idaho, USA) is one of our alumni as well as being one of our professors. Dr Nuzum also serves as a member of Board of Governors of National University of Medical Sciences. Thank you Dr Nuzum for this kind and beautiful post.
Today I wish to honor my good friend Dr. Shahin Pourgol. He is an amazing Doctor, friend and President of a University. He has impeccable integrity and is always striving to improve himself, his family and his University. Thank you Dr. Pourgol for all that you do for us at both National Academy of Osteopathy and the National University of Medical Sciences!
