PREPARING FOR CHIROPRACTIC SCHOOL

Applicants must have at least 90 semester hours of undergraduate study leading toward a bachelor’s degree, including prerequisite courses. Since it is not a minimum requirement yet, some students can complete the requirements in two years and then go, if they are accepted. Many applicants have a bachelor’s degree, which may eventually become the minimum entry requirement so you are strongly encouraged to pursue completion of a degree.
