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.
