A Note on Chiropractic Colleges in the United States

DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC DEGREE PROGRAMS AND SOLITARY PURPOSE INSTITUTIONS
HOLDING ACCREDITED STATUS WITH THE COUNCIL ON CHIROPRACTIC EDUCATION

CCE is recognized by the United States Secretary of Education as the specialized accrediting agency for the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program (DCP) and has been so recognized since 1971.

There are 17 DCPs in the United States that are accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education. Of these, 16 programs are also accredited as “institutions” by regional accrediting bodies such as North Central and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (or other accrediting bodies recognized by the US Department of Education). These regional bodies accredit the entire institution, allowing the CCE to focus strictly on the chiropractic education program.

One program (Life Chiropractic College-West) has both the overall institution and the chiropractic program accredited by The Council.
