Tuition, Fees & Financial Aid

Chiropractic College Tuition

Our financial aid packages – combining federal and institutional aid – make us one of the most affordable chiropractic colleges in the country. Nearly 98% of students receive some form of financial aid – including loans, scholarships, family discounts and work-study. Sherman also participates in the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of the Yellow Ribbon Program.

How We Help You

Our G10 business curriculum helps you develop a game plan for eliminating student loan debt and building prosperity within the first 10 years after graduation.

Total Tuition

Tuition is $8,825 per quarter.

Total annual tuition is $35,300.

Low Default Rate

Our Title IV Default rate is 1.8%, which means graduates are well able to pay off loans and practice successfully. This speaks to the ability of our program to prepare you for practice, and it reflects our commitment to your financial success.

Applications for Financial Aid

Applications for financial aid must be filed with the college a minimum of six weeks prior to registration.

Assistance Following Graduation

Federal programs, such as income-based repayment and loan forgiveness, are available to chiropractic college graduates. With an income-based repayment plan, payments are based on household income and size. With the Pay As You Earn Program, your maximum monthly payment will be 10% of discretionary income for up to 20 years. Loan forgiveness also applies to doctors of chiropractic. If you work for a federal, state, local or nonprofit organization, you may be eligible for loan forgiveness after you complete 120 monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan.

Sherman College does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, employment policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, or other school-administered programs.
