To get into chiropractic school, you need at least 90 semester hours with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or higher, though many students complete a bachelor’s degree before enrolling. Of the 90 hours required for traditional admission, 24 must be life and/or physical sciences with corresponding labs for half, and 15 hours must be in the humanities, social and/or behavioral sciences.
If you have an overall GPA between 2.75 and 2.99 and/or less than the required hours in the sciences, you may be eligible for the Alternate Admission Track Plan (AATP). This admission standard is designed to allow students with various academic backgrounds to enroll in chiropractic school based on the academic achievements they already have. We encourage you to submit transcripts and contact admissions for individual counseling.
You’ll find the details and specific requirements for admission on our prerequisite page.
Health-conscious people make chiropractic a regular part of their health regimen, along with such sound practices as exercise, good nutrition, stress management and regular health check-ups. Chiropractic is a separate and distinct field that does not compete with the practice of medicine or the use of alternative therapies.
Some other chiropractic colleges generally view chiropractic as a therapeutic approach to improving musculoskeletal and other conditions.
* First quarter books and supplies for new students will be at least double this amount.
Almost 98 percent of our students receive federally funded loans to cover their tuition and cost of living expenses. Most students can expect to receive approximately $3701 per quarter for living expenses ($1234 per month). See more tuition and expenses information here.

Absolutely! We encourage this. We can start an academic evaluation for you, and tell you exactly which classes you still need to complete. You do not want to find out at the last minute that you are missing some classes, and you don’t want to take classes that you do not need. You may send unofficial transcripts or copies for evaluation, but official transcripts will be required for admission. Please include current contact information when emailing or faxing transcripts.
Email Transcripts to Kristy Shepherd at firstname.lastname@example.org or
mail your transcripts to
