What will I learn?

The 3+3 program allows qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. You'll begin your college career at Fontbonne, where you'll study for three years, taking general education and pre-chiropractic coursework. In your third year at Fontbonne, you'll apply to Logan, and, upon meeting the necessary requirements, you'll begin coursework to complete both your bachelor's degree from Fontbonne in your fourth year and your Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan in your sixth.

Chiropractic Program Highlights

  • Earn two degrees in less time than a traditional chiropractic program — only six years instead of the traditional seven.
  • Receive automatic acceptance to Logan if you complete the first three years of coursework toward a biology degree at Fontbonne, have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25, and apply to Logan University at least six months prior to your expected date of transfer.
  • Students who complete the first three years of coursework toward a biology degree and have a cumulative GPA between 2.75 and 3.25 may also apply for transfer, but are not guaranteed acceptance into the chiropractic program.
  • Receive your Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Fontbonne University upon satisfactory completion of your first year of coursework at Logan University. As the student, it is your responsibility to apply for the bachelor’s degree from Fontbonne during the fall semester of your first year at Logan.
  • Upon satisfactory completion of the third year of study at Logan University you will be awarded a doctorate in chiropractic.
  • Enjoy the support, benefits and resources of two respected universities, benefiting from the personalized environment at Fontbonne and the specialized environment at Logan.
  • Work with academic advisors knowledgeable about the requirements needed for acceptance to Logan.
