Associate in Science (Transfer)

You will use both science and your hands to help people as a chiropractor. Chiropractic manual therapy, including manipulation of the spine, is used to resolve pain, headaches, and other health issues. Pre-chiropractic study at ICC prepares you for professional school. Plus, you benefit from our experienced instructors, competitive tuition rates, and small class sizes. Make ICC your SMART Choice.

support in the ICC Academic Support Center

Students planning to enter a professional school should seek specific information from the school they wish to attend since admission requirements vary considerably. Accredited chiropractic colleges require a minimum of 90 credit hours before entrance into the medical school, of which a minimum of 30 hours must come from upper-level courses. A bachelor’s degree is not required but is encouraged.
