International Chiropractic Student Information

To be eligible for admission to Sherman College, international students must meet the same educational requirements as a student educated in the United States. To determine educational equivalency and admission eligibility, international students must present the following:

    1. Academic Evaluation: An official evaluation of their academic credentials by World Education Services. Applicants are required to have a course-by-course or subject area distribution analysis made of their university work. The results of the evaluation are to be sent to the Admissions Office at Sherman College. All educational transcripts

    2. Demonstrate proof of English Proficiency: In addition to satisfying all standard admission requirements, students from non-English speaking countries are required to present evidence of their ability to speak, read and write the English language. TOEFL and IELTS are accepted.

    3. Financial Resources: All international students must present evidence of having sufficient funds to live and study in the United States for one year. Evidence that funds are available must be submitted from a bank or government official on the financial certificate .

    4. Visa regulations: All international students entering the United States to study at Sherman College must have an F-1 student visa issued by the American consulate in their home country. Sherman College will issue the appropriate I-20 form once the candidate for admission has been approved by the college's Admission Committee and financial verification has been received. The I-20 form will enable the student to apply for an F-1 student visa.

      International students should not attempt to enter the United States without an F-1 student visa. Students may obtain a B-2 prospective student visa to visit Sherman College.

Dansen WongI've always admired people who chosen a profession that brings a positive impact to society--a profession that requires a selfless service to the public. When I was exposed to chiropractic in my early teens, I knew it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
