Sheridan Second Career Information Sessions
In addition to the mandatory Government Second Career Information Sessions, Sheridan offers Second Career Information Sessions specific to the college application process. After each Information Session, you are invited to stay for a Personal Consultation in which we discuss your Sheridan College application. We have received excellent feedback from past attendees about how helpful the Sheridan Second Career Information Sessions are in clarifying the whole process, which can seem a little complicated. For days and locations, please visit our Information Sessions & Personal Consultations page.
