October 9, 2013 — New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) will partner with Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. through an articulation agreement resulting in a new 3+1 dual-degree pre-chiropractic program between the two institutions.
The relationship will enable qualified Marist College students who pursue a baccalaureate of science degree in biology to complete their final year of undergraduate studies at NYCC. This will permit Marist students to earn their baccalaureate and doctoral degrees in six years rather than seven — and to enter the chiropractic profession that much sooner.
NYCC President Frank Nicchi, DC, and Vice President of Enrollment Management Diane Dixon were invited to tour the Marist College campus and meet with relevant administrators who included Marist Vice President of Business Affairs and CFO John Pecchia and Marist’s Dean of the School of Science, James W. DuMond.
President Nicchi is pleased with the new relationship: “This is an exciting new program that will expand opportunities for Marist students and facilitate their matriculation at one of the premier institutions of chiropractic education in the country.”
