This is a common question.
The International standard for completing a Chiropractic degree is eight (8) years after High School (Grade 12). A Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Science is the prerequisite to qualify for entering a Chiropractic College. There are two years of basic sciences and two years or more chiropractic clinical sciences including one year clinic internship and a thesis to complete some 4,500 hours to qualify for graduation. This is followed by National Boards and licensing.
