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.

Accessible Learning Protocol for Students who Require an Accommodation to use Medical Cannabis

  • Student schedules appointment to meet with an Accessible Learning Advisor; student brings completed Accessible Learning Intake Form and disability documentation Medical Information Request Form to the appointment.
  • Accessible Learning Advisor and student collaborate in the development of a Confidential Academic Accommodation Plan. (Example of an accommodation that potentially applies in a testing context: breaks for medical reasons; classroom setting: student may leave class for short periods of time).
  • Accessible Learning Advisor supports student with emailing Accommodation Form to faculty, if needed.
  • Accessible Learning Advisor, the student and Sheridan Campus Security may work together to identify a discreet and safe space to use medical marijuana on campus, if needed.

Accessible Learning will consider requests for retroactive accommodations on a case-by-case basis. Please contact an Accessible Learning Advisor to discuss how to submit a request.

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.
