Chiropractic is a form of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders through adjustment of the spine. As a licensed chiropractor, you seek to reduce pain in your patients and improve their mobility while also promoting healthy lifestyles through exercise, ergonomics, and other therapies.
Ball State’s pre-chiropractic program is a non-degree program designed to allow students to fulfill admissions requirements for chiropractic school while also completing a major in biology or in pre-medical preparation. Through your studies, your departmental advisor will help you meet the requirements of your chiropractic school of choice, including schools Ball State has partnered with.
- Logan College of Chiropractic:
Ball State has a "3+3" affiliation agreement with the Logan College of Chiropractic. Students admitted to Logan at the end of their junior year can complete their bachelor's degree transferring up to 32 credits from Logan's first-year curriculum provided those grades are a C or above. Ball State students must complete the Ball State University Core Curriculum (either the pre-medical or biology major), take additional Logan prerequisite courses and accumulate at least 94 credits before entering the Logan chiropractic program in the fall of their senior year.
- National University of Health Sciences:
We have an affiliation agreement with the National University of Health Sciences. As part of a pre-chiropractic program at Ball State, qualified students will complete three years of undergraduate study or a minimum of 90 credits leading toward their bachelor of science in pre-medical preparation. Students with a 3.5 GPA or higher will then start the five-year DC program at NUHS. After successful completion of all coursework in the first three trimesters at NUHS, they will be granted their bachelor's degree from Ball State.
We have a dedicated support team in Biology including academic advisors with educational backgrounds in biological sciences and a faculty advisor with a PhD. They will assist you with the application timeline, setting benchmarks, and finding shadowing and volunteer opportunities. Feel free to contact one of the advisors
