Step 1: Find your program


We offer over 140 programs in a wide variety of fields and credentials, focused on meeting the needs of every student. You can choose a comprehensive four-year honours degree program — a degree that combines the theory and critical thinking of a university program with hands-on, applied learning. Or maybe you'd prefer a one-year post-graduate program, that’s great for students looking to build onto their current knowledge. Many of our programs offer the flexibility to be taken part-time, accelerated, virtually or as a hybrid.

Refer to the Choose your program page for more information.


Step 2: Check the admissions requirements

Admissions requirements vary depending on your program of interest. Please check your program page to ensure you meet the specific requirements outlined there.

We’ll accept your application after the equal consideration date, provided the program is still open, as indicated on the program page on sheridancollege.ca.
