Sherman Partners with Area Colleges to Benefit Students

Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, Spartanburg Technical College (STC) and the University of South Carolina Upstate (USC Upstate) signed an agreement on Wednesday, December 10, creating The Two Plus One Plus One Program to benefit Upstate South Carolina students.

(From left to right) Dr. Dan Terhune, president of STC; Dr. Jerry Hardee, president of Sherman College; and Dr. John Stockwell, chancellor of USC Upstate, sign the agreement that creates The Two Plus One Plus One Program.

Signed in the Scallon Building Atrium at Sherman College, this agreement expands higher educational opportunities and career options, while saving students time and money. The program facilitates transfer for students earning an Associate Degree in Science from STC to USC Upstate and Sherman College, where they can earn a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree.

“Spartanburg Technical College is pleased to be partnering with the University of South Carolina Upstate and Sherman College to provide additional higher education opportunities for students in the Upstate,” Dr. Dan Terhune, STC president, said. “The Two Plus One Plus One Program provides a new employment track for our students as we continue emphasizing our workforce development mission.”

Upon completing their associate’s degree from STC, students in this program transfer to USC Upstate for one year. They then earn their bachelor’s degree following a successfully completed year of study at Sherman College. Students may continue study at Sherman to complete their Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in an additional two and a half years.

According to Dr. Jerry Hardee, president of Sherman College, “Students will save time and money by completing the final year of their bachelor’s degree simultaneously with the first year of the doctorate program at Sherman.”

This program also takes steps towards strengthening the “College Town” concept initiated by Spartanburg Mayor William Barnet, III and the presidents of Spartanburg’s six institutions of higher education.

“It is a pleasure to formalize this collaboration with today’s agreement,” Dr. John Stockwell, chancellor of USC Upstate, noted. “Not only does it underscore the collaboration between these three institutions, but it also signals the growing potential of ‘College Town.’”

In addition to Hardee, Stockwell and Terhune, Susan Newlin, vice president for Planning, Assessment and Enrollment Services at Sherman College, and Dr. Sue Stokley, department head of mathematics at STC, were present at the signing.

For more information on The Two Plus One Plus One Program, contact Dr. Sue Stokley at (864) 591-3852 or Lisa Hildebrand, director of admissions at Sherman College, at (864) 578-8770.
