New Student Orientation-Doctor of Chiropractic
Updated 6/26/2020
 
Congratulations on your decision to become a student at Parker University! We believe you have made the right decision, and we hope you are excited about the wonderful learning experiences and challenges that await you.
Things to know about your New Student Orientation:
  1. Complete the DC Orientation Packet. The packet is required before registration in Trimester One courses and should be completed by August 10, 2020 (MyParker login and password are required). Fall 2020 Orientation will now be entirely online due to the current regulations in Dallas County as a result of Coronavirus/COVID-19.
  2. Successful completion of New Student Orientation requires the completion of all content quizzes with a score of 75 or greater and the completion of the New Student Orientation survey (available via email after your Fall courses have begun). 
    1. This orientation will take several hours to complete, but can be done in multiple sittings. 
    2. EverFi is also required as part of New Student Orientation. You will receive information about EverFi in your parker.edu email.
  3. We anticipate New Student Orientation will open to all REGISTERED new students by 8/10/2020 at 9AM.
  4. Most programs will have a Welcome and Q&A session on August 28th. This will be a 1 hour session with current students and your Program Director or the Dean of your college. Times will be announced at a future date and will be based on your program. These will be recorded for reference and added to your online course after they have been completed. 

You are about to begin your career in chiropractic at the best college in the country, and we look forward to helping you achieve great success. Should you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact Sierra Jones, Coordinator of Student Activities and Traditions, at Sierra.Jones@parker.edu.

Fall 2020 Honor Code Ceremony

Honor Code Convocation is a concluding event to orientation for Parker Tri 1 chiropractic students.

Students and their families will be welcomed virtually into the Parker family with a brief history of the University, Dr. Parker’s vision for chiropractic, as well as hear from a guest speaker about the importance of integrity within the chiropractic profession. Students will then recite the chiropractic oath, take an honor code, and are publicly introduced through our virtual system. Family and friends of the student are highly encouraged to join us this event. Information on how to participate will be disseminated to the Tri 1 DC Students via their Parker.edu email.
