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.

High Success Rate

At Sherman, your success as a student and a future chiropractor is vitally important. Our Title IV default rate is historically less than 4%, which means that our students are able to pay off their loans and practice successfully. This speaks to the quality of the academic program and the investment in your future.

Low Tuition and Cost of Living

Our current quarterly tuition is $8,825 and most students can expect to receive over $3,000 for living expenses. Spartanburg is one of the most beautiful places to live and one of the most affordable. In fact, the cost of living in Spartanburg is approximately 11% 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. If a bigger city beckons, Spartanburg is just 1 hour from Charlotte and Asheville, 3 hours from Atlanta, and 4 hours from Myrtle Beach.

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.
