The Pre-Chiropractic program at BSC provides the first two years of required classes for students planning a career as a chiropractic practitioner. Because chiropractic schools differ in their requirements, BSC offers a suggested curriculum as a guide. Study includes general chemistry and biology, organic chemistry, college physics, algebra trigonometry, and statistics.


High school students interested in chiropractic should pursue study heavy in the sciences.


Students completing the suggested curriculum requirements receive an Associate in Science degree and are eligible for transfer to a four-year institution.

Bismarck State College has many cooperative, articulation, or transfer agreements with postsecondary institutions both inside and outside of the North Dakota University System. Some of these agreements are established to allow students to remain on campus as they complete their bachelor’s degree. In all cases, students seeking to transfer after completing a degree at BSC should consult the academic catalog of their destination college and work with their academic advisor to plan for this transition.
