Students interested in earning a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) must complete a minimum of 60-90 (depending on the school) credits at the University of Pittsburgh – Bradford before applying to a College of Chiropractic. Most students attending chiropractic colleges have earned a baccalaureate degree in biology prior to admittance. Each professional school may have specific requirements, in addition to the minimum courses required by all chiropractic colleges, so students are advised to check with the chiropractic schools of their choice prior to completing their bachelor’s degree.
