Accessibility for Students

It is Sheridan’s mission to deliver a premier, purposeful educational experience in an environment renowned for creativity and innovation.

In fulfilling our mission, Sheridan strives at all times to provide educational services in a way that respects the dignity, independence, integration and equality of opportunity of people with disabilities. We are committed to giving people with disabilities the opportunity to access our services and allow them to benefit from the same services in the same place and in a similar way as other students.

This site will provide you with a wealth of material about how Sheridan supports our students to succeed. Visitors and members of the public are welcome also to use this site to access our corporate accessibility and AODA information.

If you require information from the Sheridan website or any other Sheridan publication in an alternate format or with communication support, please contact the Centre for Equity and Inclusion at or 905 845 9430 ext 2775. 

Accommodation Services

The Accessible Learning Services Office facilitates equal access for eligible students with disabilities by coordinating reasonable academic accommodations and support services. Accommodation plans and services are tailored to correspond with the disability related needs of each student and are determined based on the documentation provided and program specific requirements. We continually strive to cultivate a college culture that is sensitive and responsive to the needs of students. Emphasis is placed on students' ability and independence to empower them to realize their academic potential and personal responsibilities.

For more information on student accommodations, please contact Accessible Learning Services.
