There are 16 chiropractic programs and institutions in the United States accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education. A Doctor of Chiropractic degree is a four-year graduate, professional program. Most candidates selected for admission have completed a bachelor’s degree and have an average cumulative GPA of 3.0 with a 2.5 or higher GPA in the science prerequisites. Personal essays, letters of recommendation and interviews may be required for admission. The science courses you take should be those designed for health professional students (pre-medical students) and MUST include laboratory experience. Contact the chiropractic college you are interested in attending directly for specific admissions requirements.
The three-year pre-professional certificate program satisfies the academic entrance requirements of most medical, veterinary, and pharmacy schools/colleges. You will have the minimum requirements for professional school/college applications at the end of three years provided you follow the specified curriculum sequence designed for the program.
