Registering With Us

Sheridan is committed to providing access and appropriate academic accommodation to students with temporary or permanent disabilities. To access these services, you must have a confirmed admission to a Sheridan Program or you are in the admissions process and require a pre-admission assessment.  Once enrolled, it is important that you identify early with Accessible Learning.  Book an Intake Appointment with an Accessible Learning Advisor at the campus you will be attending. Bring a completed Accessible Learning Intake Form to your appointment. You may also be required to submit medical documentation to verify functional limitations.

The guidelines below outline the documentation required for different types of disabilities:

Cannabis Protocol

Can Medical Cannabis be used by students while at Sheridan College?

If a student self-identifies that they have been prescribed cannabis for medical purposes, and they require an accommodation, the student shall:

  • be in possession of a valid medical document;
  • abide by legal limits for cannabis possession;
  • ensure cannabis is obtained through a licensed producer; and
  • meet with Accessible Learning to develop a Confidential Academic Accommodation Plan.


IMPORTANT UPDATE: Sheridan has adopted a new smoke-free policy, which will see all of its campuses become 100% smoke-free as of October 17, 2018

As such, smoking any form of tobacco and/or cannabis, vaping and use of e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco (commonly known as chewing tobacco) will not be permitted anywhere on Sheridan campuses as of October 17, 2018. The new policy accords with Ontario legislation which makes consumption of recreational cannabis in the workplace illegal. In accordance with applicable legislation and the Workplace Accommodation Policy, Sheridan will provide accommodation for the medical use of cannabis.

Access to Accommodations Related to Individual Education Plans (IEPs)

Students that provide only an IEP from the Elementary and/or Secondary level may be granted access to interim accommodations for one semester at Sheridan College. We will require updated documentation from a licensed medical professional that outlines functional limitations and their impact at the post-secondary level. An IEP is prepared under the Education Act and is not designed for the post-secondary setting.
