Cleveland University’s Overland Park campus sees historic enrollment in chiropractic program

Cleveland University, which has a Kansas City campus in Overland Park, had the largest fall enrollment in the university’s College of Chiropractic in 38 years.

In its announcement of the record enrollment last week, the university noted that 103 students began the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program this fall. Incoming students come from across the country, from California to West Virginia.

“Fall enrollment is consistently growing as more college graduates enroll in doctorate programs immediately after receiving their undergraduate degrees in the spring,” said Melissa Denton, director of admissions at the university. “Students are beginning to realize that the Doctor of Chiropractic degree is attractive to those seeking to help others stay healthy. People want to be proactive in maintaining proper health, and chiropractic is an affordable healthcare option that is essential in achieving that goal.”
