PRINT | CATALOG HOME | BACK

Program Information/Mission:

Students planning to enter a professional school should seek specific information from the school they wish to attend since admission requirements vary considerably.  Accredited chiropractic colleges require a minimum of 90 credit hours before entrance into the medical school, of which a minimum of 30 hours must come from upper-level courses.  A bachelor´s degree is not required but is encouraged.  Although a major in any academic field is usually acceptable, majors in biology and chemistry are especially suitable since major requirements in these fields overlap with pre-professional requirements.
