DCP Progression Policy
In accordance with the Council on Chiropractic Education Policy 56 which states that at least 70% of entering students must complete the Doctor of Chiropractic Program within 150% of the time normally designated for completion of the degree, each student enrolled in the DCP will be required to successfully complete a minimum of 18 credit hours per quarter.
Every College of Chiropractic student will be checked every quarter to determine compliance with the DCP Progression Policy. A report will be generated by the end of the third week of each quarter by the University Advisement Center (UAC) to provide a list of students who are not in compliance.
Any student that is found in non-compliance with the DCP Progression Policy will be placed on Academic Warning and required to meet with their advisor.
