The B.S. degree is awarded after the students completes six semesters (three years) at FDU (including the courses listed below or their approved equivalent), completes the first two trimesters of study at a participating chiropractic college with grades of C or better and is accepted into the third trimester. Up to 32 credits accepted in transfer toward completion of B.S. degree requirements will be selected from appropriate graduate-level courses offered by a participating chiropractic college.
