Cleveland Chiropractic College of Kansas City Steeped in history, yet meeting the challenges of contemporary health care education, the multicampus Cleveland Chiropractic College system, with campuses in beautiful Kansas City and in the international mecca of Los Angeles, has been a leader in providing health care education for over 80 years.

A young profession, chiropractic health care is now entering its second century of existence. In the early years, there were hundreds of schools of chiropractic. Now, the Cleveland Chiropractic Colleges are two of only 16 accredited chiropractic colleges in existence in the United States.

The Cleveland Chiropractic Colleges are the only chiropractic institutions that continue under the leadership of a pioneering family member. Now, the grandson of the founders, Dr. Carl S. Cleveland III, is continuing the tradition as president of the multicampus Cleveland Chiropractic College system. A fifth generation chiropractor, Ashley Cleveland, M.A., D.C., is Assistant Dean of Instruction and faculty member at the Kansas City campus.

The College currently awards three degrees: Doctor of Chiropractic, Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and an Associate of Arts in Biological Sciences. Students pursuing these degrees, as well as students pursuing degrees in other health care professions can take their prerequisite physical and life sciences courses in accelerated, eight-week intervals at the College.

Choosing chiropractic health care as a career will give you a sense of achievement, personal freedom, and, most importantly, the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in the quality of life. Making the decision to pursue your dream of becoming a doctor of chiropractic at one of the Cleveland Chiropractic Colleges is an intelligent choice!

I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO, 34 years ago this summer, and still practice full time in a large metropolitan area. I recommend Cleveland to many young people because of the size and personal attention they will receive there. It is by far the most student friendly school I know of.
Suggestions
I suggest that all prospective students visit at least two or three schools before deciding on where to attend....Make Cleveland your third visit, so you can compare them to the others you check out.
Overall Opinion
You will get out of your education at Cleveland that which is in direct proportion to what you put in...no more, no less.

My overall experience with Cleveland was good. I was very active in school, in terms of the clubs, student body, and admissions office, which helped in the overall experience.

As the other review said, there are lot of bogus things, like Cleveland CC is trying to set up their own rules over the one already existing made by the CCE. Secondly, there is no one that will hear you if you have positives criticism, they just took that the wrong way. In the best case they ignore you, in the worst case, they kick you out of school (happened to a student from Michigan). Some teachers are really great, such as the dean, the director, Dr Merchant, Dr Redwood, Dr Gores-Martins and Dr Mott, so i guess, 30% of the teachers i had had so far in it, the rest of them are in the best case average to really bad. Biochem teacher is a good exemple of that, the only way to pass the class is to look at old test, so we can figure out his way of tricking people on the test... Board are not even half the difficulty of his test! Even after so many complaint, the administration can't seem to figure out that they need to find a teacher that test you on what they teach, they are just like : "oh we have some good score on the boards in Biochemistry..." Of course, because we have to spend 20 hours a week on it learning every single details, so we can't concentrate on other classes as much as we want to... I love the bookstore though, and the cadavers room doesn't smell as bad as in some other colleges. Also the building is nice, nut a little too modern and i wouldn't be surprised if there are structural damage to it... The cafeteria is the best place as we have a great view on overland park and we can see trees as far as 5-10 miles away. The library is decent, i like that there are a good amount of windows. not enought study room in it though (2 with maximum amount of people of 5) also hours are silly, not made for student to study in. closes too early, so instead you could go to the UMKC librairy 15 miles away (open until 2 am when there are finals) Food is great at the cafeteria, I don't go too often there however, but price are fair.
Suggestions
Well, they need to get some better teacher, that would teach, and not read their power point only or test you on thing they didn't really covered... Also, in every little aspect, I feel like the college is being so cheap and try to economise money on things that are not even expensive (still have computer mouse with ball, printer always failing when we need them the most, internet had been fixed at least, and so many details that makes you wonder if they won't close the school soon due to bankrupt, like they did for the LA campus)
Overall Opinion
Well, if it wasn't to get knowledge, it is a great place, but unfortunately, the main thing we are coming for (im not the only thinking that way, I know so many students that transferred or were disgusted by chiropractic after the cleveland experience, this is really sad :( Just for any prospective student, choose well your school. I choose this one based mainly but not only on opinion from this website, over a year ago, since 2007 this college had changed a lot from what I have heard.

Cleveland is a wonderful school! I learned so much. The staff really understands that Chiropractic needs to be firmly rooted in the sciences, but also does not forget the need to delve into the philosophy. I would highly recommend Cleveland not only because of its great academic reputation, but also because it is the only remaining Chiropractic College still run by an original Chiropractic family. Having Dr. Cleveland around the campus was an amazing inspiration to all of us.
Suggestions
I would love to see the housing situation get a little better... but that's the only suggestion. The school was wonderful!
Overall Opinion
I loved it there!

I am just starting my second tri at Cleveland Chiro KC. I think some of the academic rules are totally bogus, for example you need to get a 70% on a final to pass the class, even if you have a 100 going into the final, and are only eligible to retake only 1 final, pending you have a 75 in the class at got a 60 on the final. Teachers are horrible our biochem teacher is known for failing students and is the worst teacher i have ever had, never teaching anything he tests over. I feel that they almost want students to fail a class so they can get more money out of them. The teacher are not flexible when it comes to score even if you have a 69.9999 on the final too bad you dont pass. A few teacher are very good and our dean is spectacular, and many teacher also have voiced their concern over the finals rule. However, the administration must be stubborn, they site their reason for the rule because it "raised board scores" well guess what it did not have that effect. Instead students spend a week of hell during finals week being stressed to the max. There was even a petition that went around that many people signed to get rid of this rule, but the admin pretty much said "suck it up". another thing is that i had a dispute about a test question and even though my answer was right because the teacher did not mention that in her lecture it was still counted wrong. I hope students considering this field take this warning, because they will not even mention any of their bogus rules when you visit.
Suggestions
need to get rid of the finals rule. Do a teacher overhaul, administration overhaul.
Overall Opinion
I may be looking to transfer as i am not happy how students are treated, while most teachers are cool there are some that are horrible non-compassionate teaches who try and make you feel stupid. Unless something is done i'm out and going to northwestern or logan where board scores are much better.
