Pre-Chiropractic

Curriculum pathway leading to an Associate in General Studies for students transferring into the following 4-year program:

Dean: Dr. Edward Kremer

Academic Advisor: Dr. Michael Ballentine or Dr. Doris Daniels

Note: Students should observe the "See course description" footnotes that appear throughout the following programs. Many courses in these programs have prerequisites or are offered only during certain semesters or at certain times.

These programs provide students with their basic education and prepare them to transfer to a four-year college.

Note: Students who plan to practice as a chiropractor in Kansas must obtain a bachelor's degree to be admitted to a chiropractic college.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
