Frequently asked questions about the Credit Transfer Tool
Are matches a guarantee of receiving credit transfer?
The Credit Transfer Tool is a guide and does not guarantee receiving credit transfer. There are many considerations that determine granting of credit transfer, including Sheridan’s Credit Transfer Policy and Credit Transfer Procedure.
Our faculty members are continually updating courses and reviewing course matches in order to maintain academic quality. As a result, some matches may expire or no longer apply to new course offerings.
Specific criteria must also be met in order to receive course-to-course credit (Advanced Standing), including minimum grade requirements and credit value. For more detailed information, visit this link: https://myotr.sheridancollege.ca/mypathways.html.
What if my previous institution does not appear or my courses don’t have matches?
The Credit Transfer Tool searches for matches with courses offered at any accredited postsecondary institution in Ontario. If a course you’ve taken does not have a match, you will be able to apply for Advanced Standing once you are a Sheridan student.
If you have previous postsecondary education from outside of Ontario, you may apply for Advanced Standing once you are a Sheridan student. Full detailed course outlines will be required for a new request. The next phase of our Credit Transfer Tool will include some out-of-province schools.
If you have postsecondary education from outside of Canada, an evaluation of transcript will be required. For more information, please visit: https://myotr.sheridancollege.ca/mypathways.html and select “Students with International Education”.
I’m already a Sheridan student. What are my next steps?
Make sure that you have requested your previous institution’s transcript(s) to be sent to Sheridan College through your Ontario Colleges account. This is the fastest way for us to receive your transcript. Then follow the directions here to apply for Advanced Standing: https://myotr.sheridancollege.ca/mypathways.html.

What are some important considerations when applying for Advanced Standing?
Before you apply for for Advanced Standing, it is important to take into account the impact that a successful application will have on your academic and financial status, particularly if it affects your course load.
- Advanced Standing will be awarded for the term in which the application was submitted. If Advanced Standing is granted, it may fulfill future term requirements. You are advised to review your academic requirements page in your myStudent Centre account.
- Dropping to part-time student status could impact your ability to access OSAP funds, bursaries and other forms of financial support. If you have questions about the impact to your funding eligibility, please email Financial Aid & Awards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You will not receive a refund for courses where Advanced Standing has been approved.
- When applying for Advanced Standing, you are advised not to drop courses until approval has been granted by Sheridan.
