Admission to Postsecondary Programs
Program-specific admission requirements
Admission requirements may vary depending on your program of interest. Please find your program page and make sure you meet the specific requirements outlined there.
General admission requirements
Applicants may be admitted to Sheridan as full-time students if they have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (Grade 12) with senior-level credits achieved at C, U, M or O designation (or equivalent), including one Grade 12 English (ENG4C or ENG4U) and additional required courses.
Ontario high school Grade 12 marks (including first semester mid-term marks) are used in the admissions decision process. Grade 11 final marks will be used in the admissions process if a student is enrolled in all required courses in the second semester of Grade 12. Many offers of admission are conditional pending the completion of all required courses by August 1.
Grade differentials are not used.
Senior-level credits refer to credits earned at Grade 11 and 12 and OAC (when available).
Former Ontario secondary school curriculum
Under the former Ontario secondary school curriculum, the high-school diploma must be at the general or advanced level. Sheridan will continue to admit students with transcripts under the former Ontario secondary school curriculum and rank their academic marks accordingly.
Applicants outside of Ontario
Sheridan recognizes the GED (General Educational Development Certificate) and all Grade 12 diplomas from other Canadian provinces and territories (except Quebec) as equivalent to the Ontario high school diploma. Sheridan recognizes the Quebec High School Leaving Certificate (Secondary V) as equivalent to the Ontario high school diploma.
Required computer skills
All Sheridan students must have experience using computers. You’ll need computer skills to be successful in your program of study and your future career. The level of computer literacy required varies by program.
