NATIONAL BOARD EXAM ELIGIBILITY
Eligibility for National Board Exams is determined through audit of student transcripts for completion of required coursework. Parker also requires successful completion of the Academic Retention Exam (ARE) or remediation through NBSS courses provided by Parker faculty prior to certification of eligibility to take the National Boards. The Office of the Registrar will not certify a student eligible for the National Board Exams until s/he has satisfied these requirements.


The following schedules are based upon a student entering Parker College of Chiropractic on the 10-trimester program and neither failing nor withdrawing from any course. Course failures and withdrawals, being placed on a special schedule for any reason, or taking a Leave of Absence will impact the timing of a student’s National Board Exams.
