Articulation and Partnerships

Chiropractic Bachelors Degree articulation agreements

UWS maintains articulation agreements with a number of undergraduate colleges and universities. These agreements are designed for students who intend to pursue a chiropractic education at UWS and also wish to receive a degree from their undergraduate institution. To achieve this, UWS DC credits are transferred back to the undergraduate institution to fulfill requirements for completion of the baccalaureate degree, thus allowing the student to complete their baccalaureate degree and Doctor of Chiropractic degree in one year less than the normal time to complete each degree individually. This relationship enables students to save both time and money.
