Participating Institutions

We’ve partnered with 100 institutions across the country to create programs in which students can begin their undergraduate degree and seamlessly transition to Palmer College.

Agreement Descriptions

3+1 Program

Through a 3+1 agreement, you complete three years at a participating undergraduate institution. Then, you complete the first year’s coursework at Palmer in the Doctor of Chiropractic program. Credits can then be transferred back to complete the undergraduate degree. This essentially allows you to complete your first year of our D.C. program while completing your undergraduate degree.

Utilize this acceleration program at any Palmer campus.

2+2 Program

The 2+2 program enables you to transition smoothly from an undergraduate institution to the Bachelor of Science program at Palmer. You complete two years (60 credits) at a participating institution and then transfer into Palmer’s Bachelor of Science program (30 credits) and finish concurrently with the D.C. program.

Utilize this acceleration program at Palmer’s main campus.

Bachelor of Science Degree Completion Program

The Bachelor of Science Degree Completion Program, available at Palmer’s main campus, allows students to simultaneously take courses that meet the requirements of their B.S. and D.C. degrees. You’ll simultaneously complete one year of the Doctor of Chiropractic program and obtain your bachelor of science degree, all while studying under many of the same professors as D.C.-Program students.
