Sheridan Degree Entrance Scholarship

Many of our degree programs offer entrance scholarships — ranging from $1,000–$3,000.

Eligible applicants are automatically considered for these scholarships based on their previous academic achievement (no separate application is required).

If you're a recipient of a degree entrance scholarship, you'll be notified with your offer of admission.
