April 28, 2010 — Dr. George Goodman, president of Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs, and Dr. Cheri St. Arnauld, provost at Grand Canyon University, have signed a 3+3 articulation agreement.
Under this program, a 3+3 GCU student can matriculate at GCU with a baccalaureate degree (minimum of 91 semester hours in course work at GCU) and a minimum of 45 semester hours in basic science coursework at Logan. Through this concurrent program, the 3+3 student can satisfy the academic requirements for both the undergraduate degree and the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, thus shortening a year of the academic programs. At Logan, the program will be implemented by Thomas Huebner, Jr., PhD, vice president of enrollment management.
“We’re excited about this partnership because Grand Canyon University has a large biology program,” said Dr. Elizabeth A. Goodman, DC, PhD, dean of university programs at Logan. “We are very pleased to offer GCU students an opportunity to save both time and money in their academic pursuits.”
The 3+3 arrangement requires students to complete the first three years of undergraduate study (90 semester hours) at their “home institution” then transfer to Logan to begin the Doctor of Chiropractic program. At the end of their first year in the DC program, these students are awarded the bachelor’s degree from their undergraduate college, in this case Grand Canyon University.
The value of this arrangement is in the concurrent attribution of basic science coursework (taken at Logan) satisfying the academic requirements for both the undergraduate degree and the Doctor of Chiropractic program.
Currently, Logan has articulation relationships with 47 institutions in 23 states. The partnership agreements allow participating students to enroll in the 3+3 program as entering freshman or later.
