    Articulation Agreements

    Articulation agreements for programs within Sheridan

    The following Articulation Agreement applies only to students enrolled in the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program, starting at Sheridan in September 2019 or later:

    Applicants who do not possess the necessary admission requirements for applied health programs (Athletic Therapy, Kinesiology, Practical Nursing, Pharmacy Technician, Veterinary Technician or Animal Care) at Sheridan who complete the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program will be granted admission, contingent on space in the program (in the semester that they are applying for or a later semester if space is not available), if they fulfill the following criteria:

    • An overall GPA of 3.0;
    • A minimum of 70% in required science and math courses for the program(s) to which the student is seeking admission; and

    Where space is not available in the semester for which an applicant has applied and the applicant meets all the requirements of this agreement, admission to a later intake of the program will be granted.
