With significant changes to Sheridan's academic environment brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, access to a computer equipped with a webcam and microphone, along with a reliable, high-speed internet connection, is now essential for all students to participate in remote learning activities and do class work.
For many of Sheridan's programs, ownership of a suitable laptop is mandated as a condition of admission. If you are already registered in one of Sheridan's Laptop Learning programs and you have a computer that meets the published recommend standard, you'll be good to go.
FAAD has developed minimum and recommended computing standards for each of their programs. A listing of programs and their requirements can be viewed on the 2020-2021 FAAD Computing Requirements page.
For the majority of Sheridan programs, using any device with specifications along the lines of the Mac mainstream or Windows mainstream models that are used in the Laptop Learning programs will provide you with all of the processing power you need for remote learning and class work.
We strongly recommend you have an internet connection that can effectively provide this speed for your device at all times:
During the past winter and spring semesters, Sheridan made loaner laptops available to students as an emergency measure to ensure that students could complete their course work remotely. Unfortunately, Sheridan is not in a position to continue offering loaner laptops to students. The loaner laptop program has been discontinued.
