Friday, November 26, 2021 is the last day to drop a Fall 2021 course without academic penalty.


For the Fall 2021 term: Monday, September 20, 2021 is the last day to drop a session A* or regular session course or withdraw from a program and be eligible for a partial refund.


There are a number of factors students must take into consideration before they drop a course:

  • Do you know when the course will be available again? Some courses at Sheridan are only offered during one term of the academic year. It may be necessary to wait a year before you can retake the course.
  • What are your options for retaking the course (e.g. Continuing Education vs. Day School).
  • How will dropping a course (particularly pre-requisites) affect you for future courses?
  • How will dropping a course affect your graduation prospects?
  • Students looking to drop a co-requisite course must drop all components of that co-requisite
  • Students applying for Advanced Standing or a Fee Waiver are advised not to drop courses until approval has been granted by the College
  • International students cannot drop from a full time to part time course load

If you are unsure of the financial or academic consequences of dropping a course you should contact an Academic Advisor, the Office of the Registrar or the Student Advisement Centre.

* Session A classes run Sept. 7 – Oct. 22, 2021 and Session B runs from Nov. 1 – Dec. 17, 2021.


Course Fees

Students will not receive a refund for a dropped course. Students that wish to take a previously dropped course will incur additional costs for doing so. 

Fees to retake a course are considerably higher for international students. It is recommended that you contact the International Centre to determine the cost of adding the course in a future term before dropping the course.
