Northwest Missouri State University


Pre-Professional Zoology, Chiropractic Emphasis

Program Description

3+3 articulation agreements with selected chiropractic schools allow students to complete the prerequisite courses necessary for admission to chiropractic school while earning a Northwest Bachelor of Science degree at an accelerated rate. During the student's first three years, students complete a minimum of 90 credit hours, including general education courses, institutional requirements, and other courses necessary for admission to chiropractic programs, especially science courses. Upon completion, students apply for admission to an affiliated chiropractic program, such as Logan University of Chiropractic or Palmer College of Chiropractic. Upon admission and completion of their first year of chiropractic study, a maximum of 34 credits will be transferred from Logan or Palmer, in order to satisfy the remaining requirements for a Northwest Bachelor of Science degree.
