Additional Courses

All full-time, postsecondary students may take additional courses in conjunction with their regular curriculum at Sheridan, providing they meet course prerequisites and satisfy any co-requisites concurrently.

  • Students may take additional courses beyond their full course load, as long as there is space available. Additional fees will apply. Please note: If you are taking a course for a future term you will still be charged full-time fees that term.
  • Under exceptional circumstances, students may be approved by their Associate Dean to substitute a course within the same term with a course of equal credit value, as long as there is a space available and they do not exceed their full course load. The tuition fee will be waived. All other course fees will apply. Students must obtain approval for proposed course replacements or substitutions from the Associate Dean responsible for their program. In the case of General Education courses being replaced or substituted, approval by the Cross-College General Education Coordinator is required. Some Continuing Education courses may be exempt from this policy.
  • Students may replace courses for which they have been granted Advanced Standing or Prior Learning Assessment with courses of equal credit value, as long as space is available. These substitutions must be made within the same term; credit values/courses cannot be transferred to subsequent terms. It's the student’s responsibility to request substitutions for courses where Advanced Standing or Prior Learning Assessment have been granted. Additional fees may apply.
