Transfer Students

Basic information for transfer credit for students who have attended another Chiropractic School

How do I find out which of my credits will transfer?

Students interested in transferring from another Chiropractic College will need to submit an application in order to have the transcripts analyzed and to find out what coursework will transfer.

Transfer credit is granted on the basis of work completed at an institution approved by the Chiropractic Admissions Committee and/ or the Dean. Each transferring student is required to present the following information:

 

  1. Credits considered for transfer must have been awarded for courses taken in a DCP accredited by the CCE or in a program accredited as a first professional degree in one of the health sciences by another nationally recognized accredited agency, or in a graduate program in an accredited discipline closely related to the health science programs offered by an institution which recognized by a national accrediting agency.
  2. Evidence that courses are substantially equivalent in credit hours, content and quality to those given at Life University. This shall be evaluated by an admissions advisor in cooperation with the Dean’s Office.
  3. Evidence that the work has been satisfactorily completed (grade “C” or better, 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) at a chiropractic college acceptable to the Chiropractic Admissions Committee of Life University.
  4. Credits accepted for transfer must have been awarded within five (5) years of the date of admissions to the receiving DCP, except that the receiving DCP may at its option accept older credits if the entering student holds an earned doctorate in one of the health science (e.g., D.C.M.D.,D.O.,D.D.S.,D.P.M.) or a graduate degree in an academic discipline closely related to the health science.

 

Students from non-CCE accredited colleges must sign a waiver stating that they understand their credits may not be accepted by all state boards.

It is the student’s responsibility to verify the awarding of transfer credit within the first quarter of the program.

How soon will I know what credits transfer?

Once your application and file is complete we normally are able to give a decision within a week.

What if I’ve been out of school for a while?

When a student has interrupted his/her chiropractic training for a period in excess of five (5) years, no credit shall be transferred for courses previously taken upon enrollment.
