Reopening Update for Winter Quarter 2021

As you depart for winter break, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season. We hope your time is well spent with your loved ones. While we cannot monitor your actions when off campus, we ask that you to continue practicing our safety protocols of wearing your masks, social distancing, and frequently washing your hands.

Ultimately, our hope is that everyone returns to campus healthy and safe. Please be aware of and adhere to local, state, and federal updates and recommendations during this time. As most exposures are related to off-campus activities, we strongly encourage you to return to the Spartanburg area and maintain social distancing as soon after the holidays as possible.
Please be advised that the campus will work under the following re-opening plan for winter quarter 2021. Reopening Director Dr. Janice Higgins-Fordree recommends the following regarding the winter 2021 return to campus post-holiday:  
  • All classes will begin on January 5, 2021, in a distance learning format. No students on campus. All classes will resume normal on-campus schedule on Monday, January 11, 2021.  
  • The Health Center will open for patient care on Monday, January 11, 2021. 
  • First quarter and re-admitted students will report on Monday, January 4, 2021, as scheduled for orientation and to receive their college-issued iPads. 
  • Faculty Development will be held on Monday, January 4, 2021, as scheduled with the option of virtual attendance. 
  • The Intern Pinning ceremony scheduled for Friday, January 8, 2021, will be postponed until Friday, January 15, 2021. 
2021 Tuition Freeze Reminder

Sherman College has been able to avoid an increase in tuition for 2021. Tuition will remain at the 2020 level, which is $8,825 per quarter. While the college continues to garner support to help offset campus projects, resources and technology, please know that we work diligently to strike a balance between tuition levels and providing the highest quality chiropractic educational experience. Our focus remains on maintaining high quality facilities and supporting our students with faculty, staff and administrative leaders who care about your success. For more information, please see the email you received last week.
