A New Pathway for Grambling State University Students to Earn Chiropractic Doctorates

Historically Black Grambling State University in Louisiana has partnered with Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, to create a pathway for students to earn their doctor of chiropractic degrees in just six years.

The new “3+3 Agreement” will allow undergraduate biology majors from Grambling State to easily transfer to the doctor of chiropractic program at Logan University. The participating students will spend three years at Grambling State followed by another three years at Logan, after which they will graduate with both a bachelor’s degree in biology and a doctor of chiropractic degree. The pathway program officially began this semester.

“This agreement is a great example of how partnering can support new levels of student achievement,” said Grambling State University President Rick Gallot. “We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Logan University on creating new career opportunities for our graduates.”
