Credential Assessment

If you've attended an educational institution outside of Canada, you'll need to provide a Credential Assessment Report from one of the following organizations when you apply to Sheridan:

Depending on the program(s) you’re applying to, one service may be preferred over the other.

It takes time for the evaluation to be processed. Please plan accordingly when applying.

If you're a domestic applicant, when you apply at ontariocolleges.ca they will provide you with information on how to obtain an evaluation.

If you already have a Credential Assessment Report issued by one of the organizations above, you can contact them directly to have Sheridan added as a recipient (WES) or have the evaluation sent to ontariocolleges.ca (WES or ICAS). Original academic documents, transcripts or evaluations sent to Sheridan will not be sent or returned to applicants, their families or any agents acting on behalf of applicants.

Why do some programs require a course-by-course evaluation?

A comprehensive evaluation gives Sheridan a full assessment of the academic work you've completed, including all courses, grades and completion dates. Some Sheridan programs have specific admission requirements, such as arts, maths and sciences. A general assessment doesn't provide detailed information about what you've successfully completed. Offers to our programs are given to the most qualified applicants, and grades are also used to rank applicants for the purpose of offers and waitlists.

If you wish to apply for Advanced Standing for courses already completed at another institution, Sheridan requires a course-by-course evaluation in order to determine eligibility for Advanced Standing. General assessment evaluations are not eligible for Advanced Standing until you provide Sheridan with an upgraded comprehensive assessment. Course outlines and translations may be required.

When is a general assessment acceptable?

A general assessment can be used for admission to some certificate and diploma programs that require completion of an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, plus the required English course or English equivalency as posted on the program page. A general assessment may also be used for some graduate programs as listed below.

If you submit a general assessment when applying to a program that requires other courses such as math and science, you'll be required to submit your transcripts for courses completed within Canada, or you may be required to complete additional testing in the subjects to demonstrate proficiency. Testing fees will be required for each test that is written. Current test details are found on Sheridan's Assessment Centre page.

The list below indicates which evaluation is required for admission to each program offered at Sheridan.
