Accepting Sheridan’s Offer of Admission

Three Students Looking at a Laptop Together

Congratulations! Sheridan sent an offer of admission — with a deadline to accept. Remind your student that this opportunity will expire if the acceptance is late.

Now that your student has accepted their offer, what’s next?

We can help you navigate these steps of your student’s journey. Before you begin, there are a few important things to consider. Let us show you where to start.

Meet the conditions
If your student has received a conditional offer, certain conditions must be met. Nobody wants to have their offer revoked! In our case, my son needed a university-level Grade 12 math credit. He enrolled in summer school and sent his final grade to Sheridan in July. His case might be the exception, not the rule, but it’s important that your student understands he needs to finish high school on a positive note. All conditions must be met by the date noted on the offer.

Get to know Sheridan
If you were unable to attend the Open House, book a campus tour. The best way to learn about your new school is to experience it! You can book tours online. Walk around and explore everything Sheridan has to offer. Things will seem a lot less intimidating in the fall when you already know where to buy textbooks — and coffee!

Look for housing
Living in residence can be a great student experience. Sheridan offers modern residence buildings at its Trafalgar (Oakville) and Davis (Brampton) campuses. Knowing where your student will be living helps to set your mind at ease, especially if it’s their first time away from home. You can book residence tours online. Students are encouraged to apply early to secure a spot.

Pay your fees
Make sure your student knows that invoices will be posted online in myStudent Centre. Even if you’re the one footing the bill, all invoices are posted in myStudent Centre and are not mailed. Students need to confirm the deposit and outstanding fee due dates for each term. A fee notification email will be sent to students’ personal and Sheridan accounts when the invoices have been posted.

Start preparing
Get ready for a whole new world! Chances are your student will soon be embarking on a path to independence that may need some guidance. Spend the summer introducing concepts like budgeting, organizing, planning… and how about the really important stuff like cooking and doing laundry!
