Admissions Requirements

As a future chiropractor, your opportunities are limitless. Palmer College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Palmer’s doctor of chiropractic program is professionally accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education.  

While each prospective student is considered on an individual basis, we have prerequisites that all students must meet. 

3+1 Program

Through a 3+1 agreement, you complete three years at a participating undergraduate institution. Then, you complete the first year’s coursework at Palmer in the Doctor of Chiropractic program. Credits can then be transferred back to complete the undergraduate degree. This essentially allows you to complete your first year of our D.C. program while completing your undergraduate degree.

2+2 Program

The 2+2 program enables you to transition smoothly from an undergraduate institution to the Bachelor of Science program at Palmer. You complete two years (60 credits) at a participating institution and then transfer into Palmer’s Bachelor of Science program (30 credits) and finish concurrently with the D.C. program.
