October 20, 2010 — Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa, is the latest university to take part in Palmer College of Chiropractic’s Dual Degree Program, which is available through Palmer’s Davenport Campus.
The purpose of a dual degree agreement, also known as an articulation agreement, is to foster a spirit of cooperation between two educational institutions, which provides students with an opportunity to earn degrees from both institutions.
In addition, because students participating in these programs may earn credit concurrently for their fourth year at their undergraduate institution as well as their first year of the professional program leading to a doctor of chiropractic degree at Palmer, they may save up to a year of time and tuition dollars.
This agreement is designed for students who intend to pursue a chiropractic education and want to receive a degree from their undergraduate institution. During their first year of study in the DC program at Palmer, students also receive credit for completion of their fourth year at their undergraduate institution by transferring the Palmer credits back to their undergraduate college in order to complete their undergraduate degree.
