Credential Assessment

If you have attended any education institution outside of Canada you will need to have your credentials assessed either by World Education Services (WES) or ICAS Canada. Once you have applied, ontariocolleges.ca will advise you of next steps via email. Credential evaluation fees will apply. 

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

A course-by-course (CBC) or comprehensive (COMP) evaluation gives Sheridan a full assessment of the academic work you have completed including grades. Offers are given to our programs to the best qualified applicants, and grades are used to rank applicants for the purpose of offers and waitlists. Some programs require that course work has been completed in particular subject areas, and this information is not supplied in a General Assessment. 



Additionally, you may wish to apply for Advanced Standing for work already completed at another institution. Sheridan requires evidence of subject matter, grades and completion dates in order to determine eligibility for Advanced Standing. Again, this information is not supplied in a General Assessment. 

When is a General Assessment acceptable? 

A General Assessment can be used for Admission to programs that require completion of Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, plus certain required courses (English, Math and Science). Please note that if you submit a General Assessment for these programs, you will be required to complete additional testing in these subject areas to demonstrate proficiency. Testing fees will be required for each test that is written. Current test fees are found on Sheridan's Assessment Centre pages. 

If you choose a General Assessment you will not be eligible for Advanced Standing until you provide the college with a comprehensive assessment of the transcript (course by course). Course outlines will also need to be provided and translated, if necessary.

Can I use a General Assessment for a Post Graduate Certificate program? 

For certain Post Graduate Certificate programs, the admission requirement is a postsecondary degree or diploma. In such cases, a General Assessment may be sufficient for Admission purposes. In other cases, applicant selection is based on evidence of related courses and for these, a Comprehensive or Course by Course assessment is required. You may wish to speak with the Admission Specialist for the program prior to choosing your assessment if you are unsure. 



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