READMISSION

If you have withdrawn from a program and would now like to return, you will need to apply for readmission.

Readmission into the first semester of a program

If you withdrew from your program before completing your first semester, you must re-apply to the program through ontariocolleges.ca.  You will be following the exact same process you used when you first applied to Sheridan. (Please note: If applying for a program starting in September, it is recommended that you apply prior to the equal consideration date – Feb. 1st)

Readmission beyond the first semester

If you completed the first semester of your program before withdrawing then you can re-apply directly to Sheridan. If you are interested in readmission, please visit Student Advisement  (Trafalgar Campus – room B104, Davis Campus – B230, HMC - A247) where one of our Student Advisors will go through the process with you.

YOUR SHERIDAN E-MAIL ACCOUNT

It is very important that you continue to check your Sheridan e-mail even when you are not in classes. The College will use your Sheridan e-mail account to communicate important messages to you. For example, you will receive e-mails about your Fee Invoice for the upcoming semester, about accessing your timetable via AccessSheridan, as well as selecting a General Education Elective. If you have forgotten your user name and password please remember to visit the ITSC (Trafalgar Campus – room C131, Davis Campus – room B195, HMC - room A202) or call the Contact Centre.

BACK TO SCHOOL

ADDING/DROPPING CLASSES

You should always discuss your decision to add or drop a course with a Student Advisor in Student Advisement (Trafalgar Campus – room B104, Davis Campus – B230, HMC - Welcome Desk), or with your Program Coordinator as there are many factors you need to consider. If you decide to add or drop a course, please visit the Office of the Registrar (Trafalgar Campus – room D100, Davis Campus – B201, HMC - Welcome Desk). During Term Start-Up students have access to change their timetables online - please see myotr.sheridancollege.ca for detailed information about online enrolment (Note: not all courses/programs can be changed online - a complete list of exemptions is listed on myotr.sheridancollege.ca)

REPEATING A FAILED COURSE

It is recommended that you meet with a Student Advisor in Student Advisement (Trafalgar Campus – room B104, Davis Campus – B230, HMC - A247), so they can explore all of your options with you.

WITHDRAWING FROM A PROGRAM

Students have until the 10th day of classes to withdraw from their program with a partial refund. There are many things a student must take into consideration when withdrawing from a program, therefore it is recommended that a student visit Student Advisement (Trafalgar Campus – room B104, Davis Campus – B230, HMC - A247) to meet with a Student Advisor to ensure they know the proper process for withdrawing from the College.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

You may have received an e-mail from Sheridan stating that you are on Academic Probation.  Academic Probation is a warning that your academic performance must improve if you wish to continue your studies at Sheridan. To discuss your particular situation, and find out what your next steps are, please visit Student Advisement (Trafalgar – room B104, Davis – B230, HMC - A247). Are you on "Academic Suspension"? If you have been dismissed from your program because the minimum GPA requirement was not met, it is important that you meet with a Student Advisor in Student Advisement. The Student Advisor will explain the "Academic Suspension" standing and the Academic Standing Policy as well as provide you with your options and next steps. If it is not possible for you to meet with a Student Advisor at the present time, consult our Managing Your Academic Standing guide for immediately-useful resources and action steps.

CHANGING PROGRAMS

If you are considering changing your program Student Advisement staff is here to provide you with your options. Please visit  Student Advisement (Trafalgar – room B104, Davis – B230, HMC - A247).
