Additional Courses

All full-time postsecondary students may take courses in the day or evening in addition to their regular curriculum at Sheridan. These courses may be taken in one of two circumstances:

  1. Students may take additional courses beyond their full course load, providing there is space available. All course fees will apply (i.e. tuition, administration and material fees). 

  2. Students may replace courses for which they have been granted Advanced Standing or PLA credit with courses of equal credit value and within the same term, provided that space is available. In this instance, the tuition fee will be waived. All other course fees will apply.
