The College is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), who are responsible for regulating and assuring the quality of all providers of higher education in Australia. The ACC is currently registered with TEQSA to deliver a Bachelor of Chiropractic (Australian Qualifications Framework Level 7), and a Diploma of Health Science (Australian Qualifications Framework Level 5).
Whilst the Bachelor of Chiropractic has CCEA accreditation, the Chiropractic Board of Australia has not yet recognised the program as an Approved Program of Study which provides graduates with the ability to immediately meet the qualification registration requirement to practice in Australia. The Chiropractic Board of Australia is expected to consider the ACC Bachelor of Chiropractic upon graduation of the first ACC cohort in 2024. The Chiropractic Board of Australia website (Chiropractic Board of Australia – Accreditation) notes that “Section 53(c) enables an individual who holds a qualification relevant to chiropractic to qualify for general registration by completing an examination required by the Chiropractic Board of Australia. The relevant examination for the purposes of section 53(c) is an exam by the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA).”
