Are you a high-school student interested in pursuing chiropractic? That’s great! The earlier you know that a career in chiropractic is for you, the sooner you can begin to prepare yourself for your education here at Palmer. To help get you started, below is some helpful information about coursework, transferring credits and the field of chiropractic. We’ve also included useful links to other pages you will want to check out on our website.
Which courses should I take in high school?
The answer to this question depends largely on where you decide to pursue your undergraduate degree. In high school, you will want to prepare yourself for the program that interests you at your specific college or university by becoming familiar with the course catalog and individual program requirements.
Once I begin classes at my college or university, then what?
It all depends on you. While some students begin the Doctor of Chiropractic Program with a bachelor's degree, this is not the best option for every student.
Some students can work toward a bachelor’s degree as they pursue the D.C. program through a Dual Degree Program via an articulation agreement with a partner school. Palmer maintains agreements with many schools so that students may come to Palmer earlier, transfer Palmer credits back to their undergraduate institution, and thereby save time and tuition costs. Details are online in our Dual Degree Programs section.
In addition, Palmer’s Davenport Campus offers a Bachelor of Science Degree in General Science and an Associate of Science Degree in Chiropractic Technology.
What should I do now?

(Contact information for each campus is at the bottom of the screen.) When you contact us, we will connect you with an admissions representative who will help you through your admissions process from the day you inquire to the day you begin classes at Palmer.
