We strongly recommend that you complete the four-year bachelor’s degree. You should follow programs for the major in biochemistry, health science or biology, since most of the chiropractic schools require six semester hours in biology, 12 in chemistry, six in physics and at least 30 semester credits in humanities and social science. The mean cumulative grade point average is 3.3 (on a 4-point scale). Admission requirements at individual chiropractic programs and institutions may exceed these minimums. Application is made to each individual chiropractic school.
Interviews by, and recommendation letters from, the Health Science Recommendations Committee should be arranged for during the spring semester of the junior year or fall semester of the senior year.
