The Australian Chiropractic College is in the process of a staged professional accreditation with the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA) as per CCEA practice and has completed the first two stages of the process. It should be noted that ACC does not currently hold professional accreditation status, nor is professional accreditation guaranteed. A decision on final accreditation will be granted on the completed assessment of the program.

If professional accreditation is achieved, graduates will be eligible to apply for registration from the appropriate Chiropractic Board and graduation from the ACC will enable graduates to apply for registration from Chiropractic Boards worldwide, including in Australia.
