Sheridan credentials

Ontario College Certificates

College Certificate programs can generally be completed in one year or less. Some are career-specific; others are Foundation programs. Foundation programs are a stepping-stone to further study in your field of interest. They introduce theory and practice to students who want to assess their talent, build a basic portfolio or skill set, and chart a course for further study.


Diplomas are two-year programs. Some are for a broad base of study, which enables graduates to pursue various career opportunities, and others are more focused as preparation for a specific field of work.

Advanced diplomas

Advanced diplomas are three-year programs. Similar to diploma programs, these programs prepare students with further specialized study. The advanced diploma offers more intense concentration on the subject matter. Graduates from these programs can choose from a variety of career opportunities within their field.


These Honours bachelor and bachelor degree programs combine theory and critical thinking with hands-on, applied learning and practical work terms. Top employers compete for our graduates, and entrance into the programs can be highly competitive; we recommend that you apply early.

Graduate certificates

Graduate certificates are one-year programs that generally require applicants to have a postsecondary diploma or degree. In these programs, students hone their skills and earn specialized knowledge to gain a competitive edge in the job market. Many of these programs offer the opportunity to gain practical experience through a work term or practicum.

The program you start in isn’t always your final destination. Wherever you are in your studies or in your career path, Sheridan has many options for you.

The program offers flexible Academic and Career Entrance (ACE)-level courses (C-equivalent) in communications, math, biology, chemistry and computers to meet your specific educational needs.

Transfer credits

Pathways provides you with options to advance your academic standing by applying previously earned learning credits to your current program of study.

Review the details on our website.

Collaborative/Joint degrees

Collaborative programs are partnerships between Sheridan and its university partners where students study at both institutions. Some collaborative programs allow students to earn credentials from both schools, while others confer graduates with the university credential alone.
