Biology, Bachelor of Science (Pre-Chiropractic)

Program Requirements for Biology, Bachelor of Science (Pre-Chiropractic) Majors (51 + 22** credits)

The accelerated Pre-Chiropractic Program is designed to allow students to begin the study of chiropractic medicine at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) during their senior year. Students study at Marywood University for three years, matriculating for 104 credits in basic science and liberal arts requirements. The fourth year is spent at NYCC. A student will have preferred admission to NYCC if a minimum QPA of 3.25 is maintained for the three years of study at Marywood. An overall QPA of 2.50 or higher is required, with a grade of C or better in science courses, as is completion of a minimum of 90 credits, for NYCC entry. A student who successfully completes all coursework in the first two trimesters at NYCC, who is registered for DEAN 050 (through Marywood) during the spring semester of their first year at NYCC, and whose transcripts have been submitted to the Registrar’s Office by February of that year, will be granted a bachelor of science degree in biology from Marywood. Marywood University will accept a selected 22 credits from NYCC, provided a minimum average QPA of 2.50 has been maintained in those selected courses. The student would then continue study at NYCC for two years and four months. Successful completion leads to a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree.
