Welcome chiropractic transfer students
Are you interested in transferring to Palmer College of Chiropractic from another chiropractic college or doctoral-level health-profession program? Great! We welcome transfer students from academic institutions around the country.
A student who’s attended another accredited chiropractic college or doctoral-level health-profession program (M.D., D.D.S., D.O., D.P.M., etc.) may be granted advanced placement credit.
To receive a degree from Palmer, you must satisfy all academic and clinical requirements and must earn no less than the final 25% of the total credits required for the D.C. degree from Palmer.
The first step to transferring from another chiropractic or first professional program is to contact your admission counselor.
Required Transfer Prerequisites
Transfer students must meet Palmer’s admission requirements.
- Meet the CCE prerequisites at the time of enrollment at their first chiropractic college.
- Overall transfer cumulative grade point average of 2.50 or better.
In addition, transfer students must meet the following:
- Meet all CCE requirements.
- Transfer credits are equivalent in credit hours, content and quality to that of Palmer College of Chiropractic.
- Only credits with a grade of “C” or better are considered for transfer.
- Credits accepted for transfer must have been awarded within five years of the date of admission to Palmer. Older credits in certain areas may be accepted if the transferring student holds an earned doctorate in one of the health sciences (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 sciences.
- Credits used to satisfy the minimum prerequisites for admission may not be used for advanced placement credit.
- Each course will be individually evaluated, and credit will be granted only when approved by Palmer.
- The transferred course carries credit equal to the course for which credit is granted; the earned grade is not transferred, and, thus, the course does not affect the student’s GPA at Palmer College of Chiropractic.
- Transfer courses and credits are recorded as issued by that institution.
- A bachelor’s degree is required prior to matriculation at our Florida campus in Port Orange, Florida., campus.
If you’ve completed a course that’s required by Palmer while attending another institution within the last five years, you may receive advanced standing credit for that course. For example, graduate professional credits earned through an accredited graduate, medical or osteopathic college or CCE-member college may be used for advanced standing credit.
To receive advanced-standing credit, Palmer will individually evaluate each course. Credit will be granted only when approved by Palmer. For specific procedures and restrictions, please contact the Admissions Office.
