Logan and Truman agree to encourage qualified students to participate in this 3+3 Program through advisement and dissemination of information. The institutions agree to remain in contact with each other and apprise each other of any changes to the appointed advisor/faculty member assigned to oversee students attending under the 3+3 Program. The appointed advisor/faculty member for each institution will make every effort to:

  1. Maintain a list of students actively pursuing the program with the intent to enroll under the 3+3 Program and keep each other informed of those students through the use of the supplemental Application of Intent form.
  2. Maintain regular communication with Logan to update on any changes to the appointed representative’s contact information for the purpose of marketing on Logan’s website.
  3. Will provide Logan’s assigned representatives the opportunity for periodic visits for the purpose of meeting with students and for recruitment.
  4. Care will be taken by Truman to make students aware that some state boards of chiropractic require completed baccalaureate degrees, PRIOR TO CHIROPRACTIC STUDY, and to advise students planning to practice in those states accordingly.
  5. Both institutions agree to promote the 3+3 program in their recruitment activities; online and print marketing pieces; and to refer prospective students, when appropriate, to the other’s admission office.


This agreement shall be in effect until either institution makes a decision in writing to terminate it. It is agreed that if terminated, that both institutions will honor the teens of the agreement until all students already admitted are given the opportunity to complete the program in a timely manner.
