Graduation Rate


Sheridan College graduation rate is below the national average.

28% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Sheridan College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Sheridan College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

The Sheridan administration staff have been next to useless when it comes to producing the basic information needed to re-apply for classes. I understand why, seeing as the staff severely lack communication between each other; it appears they do not inform one another of information pertaining to a student who's seeking help and guidance.The amount of misdirection you'll encounter when calling Sheridan's office is remarkable. You'll likely get 7 different answers for one question! You'll receive no details or estimates about individual course cost- why that information is kept a secret is beyond me.I hope these issues are resolved very soon, for the sake of all present and future students working to complete their schooling.

College may be not that bad but college doesn't accept cash or credit card for fee payment. I mean they ask for 9000$ for one semester from International student and it will be really tough to arrange 9K$ in 3-4 months and credit card could be really helpful to survive.

Overall Rating:

The campus is dirty, and BFTV is a garbage program. Save 40K+ and enter the film industry by doing a small 1 or 2 year program, intern for a studio, get REAL experience, and fast track yourself.

Overall Rating:

Better of the three campuses which isn’t saying much. Sheridan as an institution isn’t worth the tuition payed. Save your time and money and go somewhere else.

Overall Rating:

I am in the illustration program and I have never liked it one bit. There is a handful of professors that are actually nice, professional and helpful, but I found the majority to be quite the opposite. The profs don’t do demos usually and only give assignments during class (that’s what you will spend 3 hours doing: nothing), so you only really learn how to manage time rather than how to master art skills and technique. There have been times that I have left class because the content was unhelpful and a waste of time (which is a waste of money). During hands-on classes like painting, profs will stand behind you and verbally tell you what they want, but they won’t try to show you. Most professors are bias with art styles they are looking for and will mark unfairly. I’m graduating without an established portfolio because the assignments are so jam packed; they take quantity over quality. They save important information for the last year, even though it is stuff you should know earlier to prepare for post graduation (example is business related knowledge that should be carried out throughout the years). Overall, a horrible experience and it was a waste of money. I would have learned more at an actual fine arts school. The only reason the program is “respected” is because it is one of the few illustration programs available in Canada.The school really only cares about money- it is a business after all and education comes second to that. My $10,000 a year has not gone towards anything except lazy, unhelpful teaching. They make you pay for extra materials and resources and I see none of my tuition going towards anything that I am physically using to help me learn.
