In addition to the mandatory Government Second Career Information Sessions, Sheridan offers twice weekly 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. Most have mentioned how helpful the Sheridan Information Sessions are in helping them with each step in the application process.
