“I have loved every day of chiropractic practice in Singapore since graduating in 2016. The tight-knit Sherman culture was something I appreciate even now, as it was my family in the USA, continents away from my Singapore hometown.”

Academic Evaluation: All international educational transcripts, with the exception of transcripts from some Canadian colleges and universities, must be translated and evaluated by a credential evaluation service. Applicants are required to have a course-by-course evaluation of their academic work. Preferred evaluators include International Education Evaluations, Inc. or World Education Services, Inc. The evaluator must be a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluations Services (NACES). The results of the evaluation should be sent to the Office of Admissions at Sherman College, P.O. Box 1452, Spartanburg, SC 29304.

International Student Credali

“Moving to a new place that you don’t know and where you don’t have any acquaintances can be stressful. When you enroll, the school hosts an orientation program, and they really know how to ease you through the process. You get to meet your classmates, you are assigned a mentor, and upper quarter students come and talk to your class to let you know that they were in the same shoes as you, and that everything will be all right.”
