Graduation Awards

The Office of the Registrar will apply awards for academic achievement as noted below. These awards are presented at our Convocation ceremonies and are also noted on the student’s official Sheridan transcript.

Honours Standing

Students whose Program Cumulative GPA at the time of graduation is equal to or greater than 3.60 and less than or equal to 3.89 will be awarded the status of Honours.

High Honours

Students whose Program Cumulative GPA at the time of graduation is equal to or greater than 3.90 will be awarded the status of High Honours

Exclusions: Recognition of Achievements and Sheridan Certificates are not eligible for consideration of Honours or High Honours

Silver Medals

The Board of Governors awards at Convocation a silver medal to the graduate with the highest Program Cumulative GPA in each program. In order to qualify, students must have achieved a High Honours academic standing. In the event of a tie, both students will receive the award.

Exclusions: Recognition of Achievements and Certificates awarded by the Faculty of Continuing and Professional Studies are excluded from consideration for silver medals.

Governor General’s Academic Medal

The Governor General's Academic Medal is awarded to the student who achieves the highest overall program average upon graduation from a diploma-level, postsecondary program (minimum two year, full time duration). The Office of the Registrar will identify potential candidates based on grades. In situations where there is a tie, the Office of the Registrar will seek from the Faculty all numeric grades for courses within the program of study in order to determine the final award recipient.

Exclusions: Ontario College Certificates, Honours Baccalaureate Degrees and Graduate Certificates are excluded from the Governor General’s awards, as well as certificates awarded by the Faculty of Continuing and Professional Studies.

Alumni Benefits

Upon graduation, you will join the Sheridan Alumni Association. As a member, you will receive an annual alumni digital magazine, Ovation, plus our monthly e-newsletter, exclusive event invitations and benefit offers from affinity partners. For more information about the benefits and services available to you as an alumnus, please visit the Sheridan Alumni website.

There are many ways to stay connected with Sheridan following graduation, including:

KPI Survey

As a Sheridan graduate, you will be receiving a call approximately six months following your graduation from Forum Canada, a research firm contracted by the Ministry of Training, College & Universities.

This firm will be collecting information for the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Graduate Satisfaction Survey, to be followed by the KPI Employer Satisfaction Survey. The purpose of these provincial surveys is to measure Sheridan's effectiveness in preparing you for the workplace. The results have an impact on both the college's level of provincial funding as well as determining future curriculum and program direction.

Forum Canada requires your consent to contact your employer for their input to the employer survey. We encourage you and your employer to participate and make a difference to Sheridan's future.
