2. Check the admissions requirements
Admissions requirements vary depending on your program of interest. Please check your program page to ensure you meet the specific requirements outlined there.
3. Apply online
IF YOU’RE A CANADIAN CITIZEN OR PERMANENT RESIDENT
Applications to Sheridan are made through ontariocolleges.ca. You can choose up to three Sheridan programs on your application.
We encourage you to apply as soon as the online application becomes available in October. Sheridan may start sending offers of admission for the 2023–2024 academic year as early as November 1, 2022.
To receive equal consideration for Sheridan programs beginning in September 2023, you'll need to apply by February 1, 2023. You can apply after this date if there’s still space in your program (as indicated on the program page on sheridancollege.ca), but we encourage you to apply early as some programs fill up quickly. Applications received after February 1 will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
