Notes:

  1. Consult current catalog descriptions of courses concerning prerequisites and time of year when offered in order to plan properly in advance.

  2. This course of study will satisfy the course requirements for admission at most chiropractic schools, but not necessarily all schools. Students have the responsibility to check entrance requirements for schools they are interested in.

  3. It is essential that preprofessional students confer regularly with pre-professional advisors, beginning at the time of admission to SUNY Oneonta. Questions about chiropractic and the other health professions should be directed to the Health Professions Advisement Coordinator, Dr. Lawrence Armstrong, 216 Physical Sciences Building.
