A Sheridan diploma may also lead to admission into a degree program. For more information, visit pathways.sheridancollege.ca or visit ONTransfer.ca for a guide to credit transfers between Ontario colleges and universities.

Transferring Credits

Institutions typically grant transfer credit based on the following:

  • The compatibility of your diploma studies with the program you wish to enter.
  • Your overall academic average at Sheridan and, in some cases, your individual course marks.

  • Students usually need to complete more than one year of study at Sheridan to be eligible for transfer credit(s). Some institutions grant “block transfer credit” based on the length of your studies. Other institutions assess transfer credit on a course-by-course basis (advanced standing). It’s important that you check with the Admissions Office.
