Transfer to Sherman College
Why Transfer to Sherman?
- Personal attention: Laboratory and technique classes are small. You get hands-on instruction from faculty who know your name, care about your success as a student, and look forward to becoming your colleague. Average class size is about 25 students. You will meet students from many different states and countries.
- Low tuition and cost of living: Our current quarterly tuition is $7,766 and most students can expect to receive $3,234 ($1,078/month) for living expenses. In 2007 the American Chamber of Commerce Researchers Association listed the cost of living in Spartanburg at 9.6% below the national average. The Greenville-Spartanburg area of South Carolina is not only beautiful, but the cost of living allows residents to enjoy the many opportunities it provides for recreation, cultural activities, and general family-oriented fun. Spartanburg is just 1 hour from Charlotte and Asheville, 3 hours from Atlanta, and 4 hours from Myrtle Beach.
- High Success Rate: At Sherman, your success as a student and a future chiropractor are vitally important. Our Title IV Default rate is currently less than 5%, which means that our students are able to pay off their loans and practice successfully. This speaks for the quality of the academic program and the investment in your future.
- Balanced Chiropractic Curriculum: At Sherman, you’ll receive a comprehensive chiropractic education – relevant to health care today, including health care promotion and disease prevention. Sherman College has a unique approach to chiropractic with this vitalistic perspective. Our balanced curriculum offers the knowledge you need in areas like basic science, chiropractic technique and philosophy, and practice management. Your courses will be hands-on from the first quarter, and we’ll prepare you for a smooth transition to chiropractic practice during the 1.5-year clinical internship experience.
