About Swapping courses

The deadline for Online Course Swaps for the Fall Term is Monday, September 11

  1. Students can swap an assigned class for the same class at a different time or day.
  2. Both full-time and part-time students can swap class times online.

As of August 21 students can add courses delivered on campuses other than their home campus. Therefore, it is important that students are familiar with the location of all their classes. Click here for more information.

Mode of Instruction

Sheridan offers in-class, online and hybrid courses. Please ensure that you check the course instruction mode prior to adding or swapping a course.

Changes to timetables

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it is sometimes necessary for the Office of the Registrar to amend timetables. To ensure that you have the most current version of your timetable, we recommend that you revisit and print a copy of your timetable on the first day of class.

Exemptions (subject to change)

  • Students cannot add a class if there is a time conflict with another class.
  • Students cannot add field placements or co-op classes (with the exception of PECED - Early Childhood Education and PECEP - Early Childhood Education (Part Time)).
  • Each student is assigned an expected course load based on their current level in their program. Students are unable to exceed this course load using the online course add functionality.

  • The following programs and courses are exempt from class swaps:
