Biology - Pre-Chiropractic Program

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 3 years, matriculating for 106 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 University.  An overall QPA of 2.50 or higher is required, with a grade of C or better in science courses for NYCC entry.

A student who successfully completes all course work 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 Science Department chairperson by February that year, will be granted a bachelor of science degree in Biology from Marywood University. 

Marywood University will accept a selected 21 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 degree.
