How Long Does It Take To Become A Chiropractor?


Although each school varies, the average Doctor of Chiropractic program lasts between 3.5 and 4 years once a student completes their prerequisite courses. Logan University’s Doctor of Chiropractic program is divided into 10 15-week trimesters. A student enrolled at Logan can complete their degree in approximately 3 years and 4 months.

A student must have completed 90 hours of college coursework prior to enrolling in Logan's Doctor of Chiropractic program. If a student needs assistance reaching the 90-hour prerequisite total, they can enroll in Logan's Flexible Accelerated Science Track (FAST) in order to expedite their path into the Doctor of Chiropractic program. Additional pathways for admission are offered to students who may not have a Bachelor's Degree or the necessary college coursework for admission. 

Students are encouraged to contact an Admissions Coordinator prior to enrolling in their undergraduate studies in order to minimize the time and money spent acquiring both a Bachelor's and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. When the correct pathway for enrollment is followed, a student is able to earn both their Bachelor's and their Doctor of Chiropractic degree in as little as 6.5 years.
