Administrative Policies


Admissions Standards

To enroll in any level of our Reflexology Diploma Program students must sign an Enrollment Agreement, be at least 18 years of age, and have earned a high school diploma or GED. All Level II students must have previous professional training in anatomy and physiology and documentation plus proof of professional licensing. Washington State law requires professional reflexologists to be 18 years of age or older.

Grading System

Classes are graded pass/fail. Students’ progress will be monitored throughout each class. Upon completion of each class, students will know they passed if they receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of class. Students with failing grades will not receive a Certificate of Completion. Class completion records will be noted in the students’ official transcript.

Non-Discrimination Policies

SRMC and its employees do not discriminate against students or potential students on the basis of race, creed, color, age, national origin, religion, sex, veteran or military status, sexual orientation, or the presence of any sensory, mental or physical disability or the use of a trained guide dog or service animal by a person with a disability.

Students with Disabilities:  ADA Access & Training Equipment Information

The classroom space is reached via 15 stairs, and there is no elevator access in this 1912 building. Our training equipment includes the use of folding chairs and portable massage tables. Students with disabilities may request a reasonable accommodation by contacting the Director.

Transfer Students

Due to limitations set by Washington State law, we are unable to accept transfer students into our program at this time.

Student Conduct Policies

Students are expected to act in a respectful manner toward instructors, staff and other students. These policies are in place to keep classes focused and on task, benefiting the entire group.

Save discussions for breaks. If you must talk during a lecture or demonstration, please keep your voice down out of respect for everybody else in class.

As a courtesy to the instructor and to other students, we ask that cell phones are turned to “silent” (not “vibrate”) during class and be used only on breaks.  PLEASE DO NOT TAKE CELL PHONE CALLS DURING CLASS. If you must communicate with the outside world during class, please take your call outside.

Students are expected to clean up after themselves and treat the physical classroom with respect, refraining from causing destruction or damage to the physical property. Any damage should be reported to the instructor or staff immediately.

No photography, video recording, or voice recordings are allowed during core classes. Digital recordings in elective classes are only allowed with permission from the both the Director and the instructor.

All written materials provided in class are copyrighted by Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center or guest instructors, and may not be copied or distributed to others without the written permission by SRMC and/or the author.

Students and graduates may not re-teach significant portions of course materials to individuals or groups without written permission by SRMC.

Failure to meet any or all of the above policies, behavior that could lead to injury, any intoxication, drugged behavior or behavior deemed inappropriate, possession of a weapon or repeated absence without valid excuse are grounds for immediate dismissal from an individual class and/or the entire program. Copyright infringement will prompt legal action.

Depending on the severity of a student conduct issue, the first offense will result in a verbal warning. The second offense will result in six months of probation and possible expulsion from class. Continued misconduct will result in written demand for dismissal by an instructor or staff member to both the student and the Director, and immediate dismissal. In a more serious student conduct issue the student may be dismissed immediately. All previously stated cancellation policies will apply.

Readmission of a dismissed student to future classes will require a written explanation by the student of how the situation will be rectified. A phone or face-to-face meeting may be required with the Director. Grounds for approval of readmission will be determined by the Director.

Nothing in our policy prevents students from contacting the Workforce Board at 360.709.4600 at any time with a concern or complaint.

Tardiness and Absences

There is a grace period of 15 minutes at the beginning of class or after a break. Students who are more than 15 minutes late will not receive credit for that hour of instruction. Students can miss up to 2 hours or 10% of the total class (whichever is smaller) and still be eligible to receive a “passing” score for class. The total number of credits to complete the program must still be earned.

If greater than 10% of the class hours are missed due to tardiness or leaving class early, students must retake the class the next time it is offered or make up these hours via a tutorial with an instructor or a special project on the related subject. Written approval by the Director is required in either of these circumstances. Tutorial fees vary depending on the instructor and range from $50-$100 per hour.

Placement Assistance

SRMC will contact graduates through email, Facebook or LinkedIn when notified by the community (spas, health care co-ops, etc.) of specific demands to employ a professional reflexologist.

 To prepare students for professional practice in reflexology SRMC requires that all students take Reflexology Business and Ethics classes as part of the Reflexology Diploma Program.  In these classes students will learn about how to look for a job in the specific field of reflexology as well as how to set up their own practice.

Students and graduates may choose to become a member of Washington Reflexology Association (WRA) or their own state’s professional reflexology organization.  As a member of the WRA, professional reflexologists may opt to be listed on the web site where prospective clients and employers can find them.  For further information, please visit www.washingtonreflexology.org

Graduates of our Reflexology Diploma Program who choose to become Nationally Board Certified through the American Reflexology Certification Board may opt to be listed on the web site where prospective clients can find them.  For additional information, please visit www.arcb.net

Reflexology practitioners may join Reflexology Association of America (RAA).  RAA is a membership organization which acts as a community for practicing reflexologists, providing information and support and listing classes and national informational updates and initiatives as well as a referral list for reflexologists around the US.  For additional information, please visit www.reflexology-usa.org

Reflexology practitioners may also join International Council of Reflexology (ICR), a membership organization serving the international reflexology community which provides information and support and lists classes and international conferences and leading edge research in the field.  For additional information, please visit www.icr-reflexology.org
