Transfer Students

Cleveland Chiropractic College will accept credits from institutions accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education or credits from an accredited professional college in instances where quality, content and credit units are equivalent to that of Cleveland's standards. Credits used to satisfy the minimum prerequisites for admission may not be used for advanced placement credit. To be eligible for transfer credit consideration, post-secondary coursework must:

  • Meet the current prerequisites in force at Cleveland Chiropractic College.
  • Have a grade of "C" (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) or better as recorded on an official transcript for consideration of transfer.
  • Be earned within five years of the date of admission to Cleveland Chiropractic College. The College may waive this requirement for persons holding a first professional degree in the health care sciences (e.g., M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.P.M.) or an academic degree (M.A., M.S., Ph.D.) in a related discipline from a regionally accredited institution.
  • Advanced standing or transfer credit may be awarded for non-clinically-related academic courses if they were taken at the master's degree level or higher.

Upon completion of the above, consideration for enrollment will be given by the Admission Committee. Applicants may be requested to participate in an interview, which will consider the applicant's professional attitude, motivation and ability to communicate.

A student transferring from another chiropractic college must be in good standing at that institution. A student admitted into the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program as a trimester one student is not eligible to apply for transfer credit for coursework taken at a chiropractic college.

A student may be required to demonstrate proficiency via written and/or practical examination in any or all coursework for which transfer credit is sought. The examination must be completed prior to the trimester in which the course would normally be taken. A student may be required to audit any course for which transfer credit is awarded.

In all cases of transfer credit requests, the Scholastic Regulations Committee may make exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis, and its decisions are final. Any applicant found to have illegally altered a document or to have misrepresented information as a part of their application shall be permanently disqualified from admission to Cleveland Chiropractic College.
