1. This transfer guide represents an Articulation (partnership) Agreement between 
   Lansing Community College (LCC) and Palmer College of Chiropractic. Palmer 
   offers two programs that may benefit students wanting a career in Chiropractic:
   Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and Bachelor of Science (BS) in General Science. 
   This articulated agreement does not have a specified expiration date. 
2. Entrance requirements for the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program:
   a. A minimum of 90 semester hours (63 credits earned at LCC with the remaining
      credits earned at a four-year institution).
   b. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75.
3. Palmer College of Chiropractic offers the Bachelor of Science in General 
   Science (BS) degree because many states require a bachelor's degree for 
   licensure and because many students recognize the value of obtaining a 
   bachelor's degree for flexibility in their future career paths and educational
   studies. The BS program curriculum complements that of the Doctor of 
   Chiropractic program.  It is a completion degree in which 31 credit hours from 
   the DC program are applied to the 121 credit hours required to complete the BS 
   degree.  The remaining 90 credit hours are obtained through the Department of
   Undergraduate Studies or through transfer credit.
   In order to apply to the BS program, the student must have completed a minimum
   of 30 credits and have applied to the DC program. The BS degree can, however,
   be started before acceptance to the DC program. A BS degree cannot be obtained
   from Palmer College without successful completion of the 31 credit hours from
   the DC program.
   The BS program also offers students the opportunity to complete their 
   prerequisites on the Davenport campus.  Students using these credits towards 
   prerequisites to enter the DC program should note that the Department of 
   Undergraduate Studies offers courses in the areas of Business, Communications,
   Psychology, and Social Sciences/Humanities.
   a. No grade below a "C" (2.00) will be accepted toward the BS degree.
   b. Up to 15 semester hours may be granted from course work in vocational/
      technical programs (transferable as freshman/sophomore level courses).
   c. Up to 20 semester hours of CLEP (College Level Examination Program) may be 
      granted (transferable as freshman/sophomore level courses).
   c. Up to 35 semester hours may be applied from a previous undergraduate degree.
4. Students may select nine credits from writing (WRIT), speech (SPCH), or 
   foreign language courses at LCC to fulfill this requirement at Palmer.
5. Students may select any college-level courses from psychology, sociology, 
   political science, business, economics, geography, anthropology, and computer
6. Students may select any college-level courses from literature, history,
   philosophy, art, theatre, music, religion and physical education.
7. The Palmer College of Chiropractic programs are subject to revision due to 
   additions and/or deletions in the College/University Bulletin.  Students 
   should work closely with an advisor from Palmer before registering for
   classes other than those listed on this transfer guide.
8. Students who complete the coursework on this transfer guide may be eligible to
   receive an LCC Associate Degree. Contact the LCC Academic Advising Center for 
   additional information. Students seeking an LCC associate degree must fulfill
   specific graduation requirements. See the LCC Catalog for details.
9. This transfer guide requires basic skill levels in mathematics, reading, and 
   writing. To determine accurate course placement, students should take the 
   Computerized Placement Tests in the LCC Assessment Center (GB 200) prior to
   registration. For testing hours call (517) 267-5500.
