Pre-chiropractic and pre-licensure requirements vary from state to state. Some states require applicants for licensure to have an earned bachelors degree either before enrolling into a doctor of chiropractic program, or prior to applying for a license. To ensure that you meet the liberal arts requirements of the state(s) in which you wish to practice, we suggest that you contact the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards.
In South Carolina, the SC Commission on Higher Education (www.che.sc.gov) states:
- Citizenship/authorized alien/immigrant status is now a prerequisite for a professional license by an agency of a State or local government under Title 8 US Code Section 1621.
- Conviction, guilty plea, or nolo contendere plea involving a crime involving drugs, moral turpitude, or other criminal charges may prohibit licensure or employment.
