EIU offers coursework in preparation for application to chiropractic school. Upon completion of these undergraduate prerequisites, students may apply to the chiropractic school of their choice. The admissions requirements of the programs vary, so it is important to determine the specific requirements of the school of your choice. In general, students should plan to complete a bachelor's degree and must maintain a grade point average of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale ? both in the sciences and cumulative. Like other post-baccalaureate health programs, admission is competitive and based on GPA and experience.
Eastern Illinois University has entered into a "3+3" affiliation agreement with Logan University and Palmer College of Chiropractic. This guaranteed admissions program will allow qualified students to attend Logan or Palmer after three years (90 credits) at EIU and finish a doctor of chiropractic degree after three more years at the chiropractic programs.
Under these agreements, Logan University or Palmer College of Chiropractic shall accept students who successfully complete the pre-chiropractic program with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher and meet all other criteria for admission. Upon completion of the first year of studies at Logan or Palmer, a maximum of 34 credits from either program may be transferred back to EIU toward completion of credits required for the Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences degree.
