WKU has a 3-year (90 semester hours) curriculum designed to prepare potential candidates for entry into a professional chiropractic college, however an increasing number of chiropractic colleges are requiring a bachelor's degree. Prior to application at a chiropractic college, candidates must have earned a minimum of 90 semester hours (including at least 48 semester hours in the courses listed below). The candidate is responsible for ensuring he or she has met those specific and elective requirements of the school(s) to which they are applying.

Although the following requirements will meet current admission guidelines for most chiropractic programs, the student should check the pre-requisites for those schools to which they wish to apply. Completion of these pre requisites will allow you to compete for available spaces in chiropractic programs, but will not guarantee admission into a professional chiropractic college.

Please note: Recommended courses are based on WKU's assessment of specific professional school requirements. Students should, in consultation with their advisor, review the requirements at the professional school of their choice.
