Logan University Signs 3+3 Agreement with University of Maine at Farmington
Dual-degree program eliminates one year of academic study
September 16, 2013
Logan University has partnered with the University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) on an articulation agreement that establishes a new 3+3 dual-degree, pre-chiropractic program between the two institutions.
The program makes it possible for qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Science in biology degree from UMF and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan’s College of Chiropractic in just six years, one year less than the traditional academic study required by a Doctor of Chiropractic degree program.
“We are thrilled to formalize our relationship with UMF as one of our articulation partners,” said Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, president of Logan University. “This agreement provides a great opportunity for students wishing to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic degree to accelerate their studies and enter the profession at an earlier time.”
Students will begin their studies at UMF, completing basic science coursework and satisfying academic requirements for both degrees concurrently, while saving time and money. The program is available to students beginning in the fall 2013 semester.
Under the provisions of this 3+3 program, qualified students must successfully complete 96 credit hours at UMF with a grade point average of at least a 2.75 in order to be eligible to be admitted to Logan. Upon admission to Logan and completion of the required 32 hours of coursework in their first year, while maintaining at least a 2.00 grade point average, students will have completed both their bachelor’s degree at UMF and satisfied their first year of graduate studies leading to their Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
“UMF has a rich tradition of preparing students for professional studies in business, law and the medical field,” said Kathryn A. Foster, president of the University of Maine at Farmington. “This new program expands those choices for our students while connecting them with one of the top chiropractic colleges in the country.”
