Notes:

  1. Students can apply to any Chiropractic program in which they meet the minimum requirements. The coursework listed above is designed to satisfy SUNY Oneonta's PreChiropractic concentrations and requirements for admission at most Chiropractic graduate schools, but not necessarily all schools. Students have the responsibility to check entrance requirements for schools in which they intend to apply.

  2. It is essential that students in the PreHealth Professional program confer regularly with advisors for these concentrations, beginning at the time of admission to SUNY Oneonta, with questions directed to Ms. Tami LaPilusa, Coordinator of the PreHealth Professions Program SUNY Oneonta.
