Do you accept international students?
Yes. If you live outside the United states and would like to attend our university, you’re only requirement is that you must be 18 years of age or older at the time of registration. We do not have any visa requirements. Tuition for international students, out of state students, and California residents is the same.
Do you accept student visas?
We cannot accept student visas due to cannabis still being illegal in some countries.
Do you accept G.I. Bills?
We do not accept G.I. bills
Do you offer scholarships or financial assistance?
What are the benefits of certification?
If you are applying for a job at a dispensary, our hope is that our certification program will give you the advantage in the selection process over someone who has NOT received certification.
Certification shows that you have taken all of our courses and have proved that you have met our standards of knowledge in the cannabis industry.
Once receiving certification from us, you are encouraged to list Oaksterdam University under “special training”. Dispensaries can then call and verify that you are a student in good standing.
How long does it take to receive my certificate?
It can take up to 8 weeks to receive your certificate after we receive your exam(s) and/or assignments.
