Logan “3+3” Program Student Amanda Smith Completes her Bachelor’s Degree While Studying at Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs
August 24, 2012
Amanda Smith, now a Trimester 7 student at Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs
, first learned about Logan’s 3+3 articulation program
during her pre-admission campus visit to what would later become her undergraduate alma mater, Hannibal-LaGrange University. She was glad she learned about the 3+3 program agreement between Logan and HLGU.
Logan's 3+3 program has enabled students like Amanda to complete the first three years of undergraduate study (at least 90 semester hours of specific coursework including physics, chemistry and biology) at their undergraduate “home institution,” then transfer to Logan to begin the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree
Program. By the end of her first year in the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Program, Amanda had earned the basic science credit hours needed to complete her bachelor’s degree program from HLGU. Through the 3+3 program, she concurrently satisfied her Bachelor of Science requirements from HLGU, and the first year of graduate studies at Logan leading to the Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
"Logan's 3+3 program was very convenient for me to be able to cut off one year of schooling, especially financially,” Amanda said. “I've also enjoyed the convenience of being able to be done with school a whole year sooner than my fellow students here since everyone else attended four years of undergraduate school before attending Logan. “I loved being able to attend the two schools of my choice. At both institutions, I experienced many personal and educational benefits while saving time and money.”
In addition to Hannibal-LaGrange University, Logan has 3+3 articulation agreements with nearly 50 other academic institutions around the country.
