The confirmed academic degrees include one bachelor of laws (LLB), one graduate in pharmacy (PhG) degree, and five bachelors degrees. The two unconfirmed degrees are from one school no longer in existence and another that never was properly accredited.

The first degree is a BS degree from a college that was fully accredited from 1924 to 1936, when it lost its accreditation. It continued to operate until it discontinued operations in 1960. Because the holder of the BS degree from this institution, who is the president of the chiropractic school, does not list his date of graduation in the catalog, it is not known whether the college was accredited or unaccredited at the time of his graduation.

The other unconfirmed degree is that of doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM). According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the granting institution for this degree was never accredited by the association, and was in operation only from 1938 to 1947.

The president of this school also lists a doctor of science (DSc) degree, but does not list the college or university from which that degree was obtained. The dean of this school lists only a DC degree. One of the two members of the department of anatomy and physiology lists only a DC degree, whereas the other holds a BS degree in sociology-geography. The only member of the department of chemistry holds a BS degree in physics. One of the two members of the department of pathology and clinical subjects holds a degree in zoology, whereas the other holds a BS degree in education. The holder of the unconfirmed DVM degree is listed in the catalog as a member of the department of pathology. The professor emeritus of anatomy lists no academic degree.
